After a thrilling win in Jerry World sent the Green Bay Packers to 4-1, the NFL world seems to have reached a consensus: They're good.

The Packers enter Week 6 as a unanimous top-3 team among the major media outlets, in most cases ranking as the No. 1 club in the NFC. Only the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs hold a higher spot across the board.

Obviously, Aaron Rodgers' latest late-game heroics played a role in the bump to the top of the power rankings. His 18-yard scramble on third-and-8 to keep the final drive alive, as well as his subsequent touchdown pass to Davante Adams, sank the Dallas Cowboys, a presumed Super Bowl contender themselves. Furthermore, with many of Green Bay's best players yet to return from injury, the team has only hinted at its ceiling.

Below, we have tracked where the Packers ranked at all the major outlets for Week 6:

CBS Sports: 2nd (2nd last week, change of 0)
ESPN: 2nd (2nd, 0)
NFL.com: 3rd (5th, +2)
Yahoo! Sports: 2nd (2nd, +2)
