Let's catch up on the NFC North's mildly changing position in ESPN.com's Week 11 Power Rankings.

3. Chicago Bears
Trending: No change after a 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans, who are now power ranked at No. 1.
Comment: Everyone is on edge as they await word on the status of quarterback Jay Cutler, whose quick recovery from a concussion seems a necessary ingredient to stay atop the NFC North.

6. Green Bay Packers
Trending: No change after a successful bye week.
Comment: The Packers begin a stretch of five division games in seven weeks Sunday at Ford Field. The world is their oyster, at least based on the schedule.

14. Minnesota Vikings
Trending: Up two after a 34-24 victory over the Detroit Lions.
Comment: The Vikings head into their bye at 6-4 and in much better playoff shape than anyone imagined before the season. Their schedule remains difficult, but they will be in the conversation at Thanksgiving.

17. Detroit Lions
Trending: Down three after a 34-24 loss to the Vikings.
Comment: The Lions have the most difficult remaining schedule in the NFL, with an opposing winning percentage of .714, as they try to dig back into contention.
