After 10 weeks of the NFL season, there was another change at the top of the NFC standings. The Arizona Cardinals lost to the Carolina Panthers and the Green Bay Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks. As a result, with both teams at 8-2 on the season and with Green Bay holding a head-to-head tiebreaker over Arizona because of their Week 8 win in Arizona, there is a new No. 1 in the conference.
