Will it come down to better North Division record or NFC record? Or even deeper?

Well, if Minnesota beats GB but wins only 2-3 against Seattle/Lions/'Skins to finish10-6 while GB also follows suit with their games (dropping only MN), GB will have 2 divisions loses, Chicago and Minnesota. Minnesota will have 2 division loses, GB and Chicago. So if may come down to conference record.

Minnesota has lost 4 conference games already, PHI, NYG, GB and CHI.

Green Bay has lost 3 conference games already, PHI, CHI and NYG. Losing against the Vikes would give GB 4 conference loses. Goes to another tiebreaker:

Two Clubs
1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs). End up tied.

2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division. End up tied.

3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.

Both beat Dallas

Vikes beat and lost to Bears. Pack lost to Bears and have one game remaining

Both beat Houston

Vikes beat Tennessee and Pack lost

Both have beaten Lions and have game remaining

Vikes have beaten Jacksonville and GB plays in Week 15

Both lost to Philly

Both lost to Indy

Both lost to Giants

Packers have beaten Redskins and Vikes play in Week 17

My projection in common games Vikes 8-4 and Packers 7-5

Vikes win North! Vikes win North!
