Like so much of the NFL, the NFC North is bunched together at the one-third mark of the season. The three-time defending division champion Green Bay Packers found a groove the past two weeks with victories over the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings by a combined 80-27 margin, but the Detroit Lions are still tied with them for first place.
Some of the best NFL players have something more: a big mouth. Here are 5 NFL loudmouths who back up their words on the field.
I went 4-1 last week. Let’s break down my NFL Week 6 JB Locks against the spread.
The Minnesota Vikings expect to have quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and safety Harrison Smith in the lineup Sunday when they face Detroit Lions at TCF Bank Stadium. However, whether or not linebacker Chad Greenway returns after missing two games is unknown. The Vikings listed two plays as non-participants, three players as limited participants and four players as full-participants in Thursday’s practice.

The Colts went up 24-0 in the first quarter this Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup. Could’ve been another blowout, but the Texans made of game of it.
You’re gonna hear Katy Perry roar over the rahs of a Super Bowl crowd.
The Minnesota Wild could not have started the season stronger. This game was so good they found themselves acknowledging afterward they probably won’t be able to repeat it.
Teddy Bridgewater and many of his Minnesota Vikings teammates will wear pink shoes and ribbons on Sunday in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To no one’s surprise, wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was wearing the most stylish looking pink shoes at practice Wednesday. But the cause itself is very personal for Bridgewater.
Teddy Bridgewater wants to win, of course, a given when it comes to any NFL player’s public commentary. The other stated goal this week? To make that absence from the field a one-game blip. Bridgewater said Wednesday he feels 100 percent healthy after spraining his left ankle in the fourth quarter of his first NFL start, Sept. 28 against Atlanta. The Minnesota Vikings held their rookie quarterback out last week at Green Bay with only three days for him to heal.
Peyton Manning is seen as one of, if not, the greatest quarterback to play in the NFL. After the five-time MVP’s performance against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, it is fitting to remember why Manning is so loved by fans, non-fans, and those within the league.
The Minnesota Vikings look to rebound from a bad defensive outing against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The team wants to improve their consistency and team play. Backup defensive tackle Tom Johnson was arrested early Sunday morning. The Lions already have a plethora of ailing stars. They may not play on Sunday. The Vikings added three players to the practice squad and released McLeod Bethel-Thompson.
Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Tom Johnson practiced with the team as usual Tuesday, following his weekend arrest on misdemeanor trespassing and disorderly conduct charges that his representatives said should be dismissed.
The Detroit Lions had a chance to maintain sole possession of first place in the NFC North, but lost to the Buffalo Bills at home in Week 5. Now, all four teams in the division are within a game of first place. The Lions are a passing offense, but their defense has been their better unit this season.
