The Green Bay Packers have won their last three contests, two against division opponents and a thriller over the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday. As a result, the Packers continue their upward climb in SB Nation's power rankings. Curator Danny Kelly placed Green Bay in the eighth spot this week. That positions them as the seventh best team in the conference, and tops in the NFC North. The Packers were slotted at nine a week ago.
The Packers fared similarly elsewhere on the internet. Yahoo! Sports placed them at ninth (a drop from the eighth spot). Fox Sports ranked them 11th, a drop of two slots from the previous week, as did USA Today. CBS Sports' Pete Prisco kept Green Bay at the 10th spot.
