The Green Bay Packers' 43-37 victory over the woeful Atlanta Falcons wasn't as comfortable as many expected, but it did push them to 10-3, tying them with the Arizona Cardinals, New England Patriots and Denver Broncos for best record in the league. The win also allowed them to retain their place atop the SB Nation NFL power rankings for Week 15.

As for the rest of the NFC North, the Packers have some company in the top 10. The Detroit Lions moved up from No. 11 to No. 9 via a convincing 34-17 dismantling of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Minnesota Vikings come in at No. 21, their same spot from a week ago. Finally, the Chicago Bears moved down a slot from No. 24 to No. 25.

Green Bay fared similarly well on the other power rankings of note around the internet. CBS Sports kept them in the top spot, as did Fox Sports and NFL.com. Yahoo! Sports ranked the Packers at No. 2, though that's the same spot they had them in a week ago.
