The Green Bay Packers did little to help their cause during Sunday’s 31-17 loss to the New England Patriots, but the defeat didn’t leave much of an impact in SB Nation’s weekly NFL power rankings. The latest edition has Green Bay once again in the middle of the pack, marooned at No. 15 for the second straight week.
”You can’t fault the Packers too much for losing to the Patriots,” power rankings curator Rebecca Toback explained, adding, “but New England was far superior and Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense are not clicking.”
The rest of the NFC North saw little change as well. The Chicago Bears stayed at No. 8 while the Minnesota Vikings moved up two spots to No. 11. The Detroit Lions remain in the back, sliding down one spot to No. 21.
Elsewhere on the internet, a similar narrative formed around the Packers. Yahoo Sports dropped them one spot to No. 12 while ESPN placed them 13th. USA Today. Meanwhile, NFL.com and USA Today each slotted Green Bay in at No. 15.
