DETROIT — During the team’s ‘bye’ week, the (5-4) Detroit Lions moved into the top spot in the NFC North without even hitting the field.

The move was made possible on Sunday with Week 10 road losses for the (5-4) Minnesota Vikings and the (4-5) Packers.

The Lions have four of their final seven games at home, and next week they face the (2-7) Jacksonville Jaguars.
