The Green Bay Packers’ season effectively ended last Sunday. Naturally, the team has sunk to the lower reaches of SB Nation’s weekly NFL power rankings, coming in at No. 20.
”The Packers have fallen so low that the Browns actually rank above them. How is that possible of a Rodgers-led team? Well, Mike McCarthy is largely to blame; it will take a miracle for the Packers to make the playoffs.”
Miracle or not, this represents the nadir for the McCarthy era in Green Bay.
As for the rest of the NFC North, the Chicago Bears lead the way at No. 4 (up two spots from a week prior). The Minnesota Vikings don’t trail by much, coming in at No. 11 (up two). The Detroit Lions still hold the back position, ranking 23rd (down one).
Elsewhere on the internet, the Packers have fallen nearly as far. NFL.com and ESPN have them 15th and 16th respectively. Yahoo Sports slotted Green Bay in at No. 18 while USA Today placed them at No. 20.
