Packers power rankings, Week 14: Green Bay stuck at No. 10

A miraculous Packers win didn't help the team in the power rankings.

The Green Bay Packers' miracle in Motown may have kept their division title hopes afloat, but it hasn't created much of an impact on the SB Nation NFL power rankings. Entering Week 14, Green Bay comes in at No. 10, the same spot it held a week ago.

While the finish to last Thursday's game went down as an instant classic, it doesn't cover up for the fact that the Packers played lifelessly for the first half, eventually falling behind 20-0. The team did play better after that point, especially on defense, but it hasn't put together a complete effort since before the bye week. That likely matters to power rankings curator Danny Kelly, who slotted the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks -- two teams the Green Bay defeated earlier in the season -- at No. 6 and 7 respectively.

As for the rest of the NFC North, the Minnesota Vikings come in just behind the Packers at No. 11. The Chicago Bears follow closely behind at No. 16. Finally, the Detroit Lions bring up the rear, finishing at No. 18.
