With seven weeks behind us on the 2018 NFL schedule http://www.authenticsgreenbaypackers...khtiari-jersey , we are starting to learn which teams across the NFC are capable of contending and which are afterthoughts. For now, the conference has exactly six teams that are over .500, making it easy to set up the playoff picture as it would stand today. However, all but three teams in the NFC are still in serious contention, with 13 teams within a game of .500 and in striking distance of the Green Bay Packers.Green Bay currently sits in the sixth spot after week seven’s results, which saw the lead flip in the NFC North thanks to a Bears loss and a Vikings victory. Here is how things currently sit.Division LeadersLos Angeles Rams Color Rush Jimmy Graham Jersey , 7-0 (NFC West)New Orleans Saints, 5-1 (NFC South)Washington, 4-2 (NFC East)Minnesota Vikings, 4-2-1 (NFC North)The Packers get the unfortunate draw of facing the unbeaten Rams this week. Los Angeles continued their trampling of their opponents thus far in week seven with a 39-10 victory over the hapless 49ers, who had pushed the Packers to the brink of defeat at Lambeau Field a week earlier. The rest of the divisional leaders also won on Sunday, with the Saints escaping overtime thanks to a missed PAT by Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.Wild Cards5. Carolina Panthers Youth Mike Daniels Jersey , 4-26. Green Bay Packers, 3-2-1If the Packers had beaten the Vikings instead of tying them, Green Bay would have the division lead at 4-2 and would sit in the fourth spot thanks to a head-to-head loss to Washington. Minnesota would then be in the sixth position at 4-3.Just OutsideChicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks — all 3-3Dallas Cowboys Color Rush Geronimo Allison Jersey , Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons — all 3-4Atlanta’s win over the Giants on Monday night got them back in a position where they might be able to contend for a playoff spot, sitting just one game back of even and matching the Packers in the win column. A whopping eight teams in the conference — fully half — have three wins at present.Out of ContentionNew York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals — all 1-6Bad. These teams are just bad and won’t be in the running this season. It’s a race for the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft at this point. Normally a final score of 44-38 indicates a great performance from the offense and a not-so-good performance from the defense.In the Green Bay Packers’ Sunday victory by that score, that was not completely the case.Green Bay’s defense has been decimated by injuries. They’ve been without their top two defensive linemen plus the secondary seems to be dealing with some kind of nagging injury. It’s a wonder Mike Pettine’s crew has played as well as it has.Separate comebacks from down both 14 and 15 points don’t just happen without some kind of effort by the defense. They were able to force multiple punts in the fourth quarter after giving up 35 points in the previous three. Under the old coaching regime Color Rush Antonio Morrison Jersey , the defense would have folded as beat up as it was.Yet this time it was different.Yes, they got shredded by a rookie quarterback for much of the afternoon but they were able to step up and make stops when it counted.
