As the NFL season enters Week 11, there are 17 teams with a winning record – two behind the record (19 in 2008) at this point in NFL history. Leading the way are the Packers at 9-0 after the win over the Vikings on Monday night. 

Green Bay is the third defending Super Bowl champion to start the following season 9-0, joining the 1990 San Francisco 49ers and the ’98 Denver Broncos.

Six of the eight divisions this season feature a new team in first place from last year’s final standings. The six new division leaders are a combined 42-14 (.750) through Week 10, 12 wins better than their records from a year ago at this time (30-24, .556).
