Standings & what's next

With today's victory, the Minnesota Vikings are now 6-2 for their season. The team has now taken control of the NFC North division and with the Aaron Rodgers injury that hit Green Bay, it seems they may be in cruise control to win the division. Minnesota has a bye week next week for the schedule but will return to action on Sunday, November 12 with a road game against the Washington Redskins at 1 PM ET.

The Cleveland Browns are still winless and they fall to 0-8 for their season. The team didn't have high expectations for this current season and they're certainly showing why through the halfway point. Cleveland also gets a bye in Week 9. They'll be back in action on Sunday, November 12 as they visit the Detroit Lions with game time set for 1 PM ET.
