Packers power rankings: Green Bay remains in Top 10, but Detroit overtakes them

Your favorite NFL pastime is back.

As you smart people well know, this is a very important Tuesday. Power will be stripped from the hands of certain parties while other entities remain untouched and in control.

I'm talking, of course, about SB Nation's Week 10 NFL power rankings.

The Green Bay Packers spent Week 9 vacationing or receiving treatment for injuries. Still, they remain a top-10 team according to SB Nation's power rankings curator Danny Kelly, finishing seventh overall.

However, the Packers no longer hold the top position among NFC North teams. That distinction now belongs to the Detroit Lions who come in at four. The back end of the division also flipped, with the 4-5 Minnesota Vikings overtaking the 3-5 Chicago Bears.

Those rankings match most of the other noteworthy sites around the internet. CBS Sports places the Packers at seven while the Lions finish one spot ahead. Green Bay comes in at six for Yahoo! Sports who placed Detroit back at nine. Only Fox Sports kept the Packers out of the top 10, a four spot swing from where they ranked them a week earlier.
