NFL Sunday Football returned with plenty of action this weekend. The NFC North Division was in action as all four teams kicked off their campaigns. By the end of the day, the division finished with a record of 3-1.

Lions vs. Colts

The Detroit Lions came out on top in one of the most entertaining games of the weekend. A last minute Matt Prater field goal was the difference, as the veteran kicker made up for a missed extra point attempt earlier in the fourth quarter.

Matthew Stafford played a huge part in the Lions comeback.

The former University of Georgia quarterback threw for 340 yards, three touchdowns, and was 31-for-39. Three different Lions players caught touchdown passes, including Theo Riddick, who also had a rushing touchdown in the win.

Packers vs. Jaguars

It was a close win for the Green Bay Packers as Aaron Rodgers led them to victory with a total of three touchdowns to his name. Both sides only managed to score six points each in the second half, and the Packers sealed the win with a fourth-and-one stop in the final minute.

Vikings vs. Titans

After trailing at halftime the Minnesota Vikings stormed back in the second half to take a 25-16 win on the road. The Vikings defense came up with a huge performance as they produced two touchdowns and created havoc for the Tennessee Titans offense.

Eric Kendricks returned a Marcus Mariota pass for a touchdown and Danielle Hunter returned a fumble after an offensive miscue. Blair Walsh kicked four field goals, despite missing his first two, to lead the team in scoring. Shaun Hill was 18-for-33 with 236 yards passing.
