Another win pushes Green Bay up a spot in SB Nation's power rankings.

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.

Green Bay's closest division competitor, the Detroit Lions, sit at 13 in SB Nation's rankings. The Chicago Bears follow close behind at 15, leaving the Minnesota Vikings way back in the rear at 25.

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.
