The Green Bay Packers held serve in the latest USA TODAY Sports NFL Power Rankings.

The Packers are preparing to face the fast-rising Dallas Cowboys, who jumped five spots after beating the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cowboys are at No. 10 while the Packers are at No. 6.

USA TODAY's blurb about the Packers:

Aaron Rodgers is NFL's all-time leader in passer rating (103.6), yet he's topped 100 only once in his last 16 starts.

And the rankings said this about the Cowboys:

First team ever to have rookies pass for 1,000 yards (Dak Prescott) and rush for 500 (Ezekiel Elliott) in a season's first five games.

Elsewhere in the division, the undefeated Minnesota Vikings land at No. 2 this week, behind only the 4-1 New England Patriots.

The Detroit Lions jumped up six spots and are at No. 21 after beating the previously undefeated Philadelphia Eagles.

Meanwhile, the hapless Chicago Bears are hovering near the basement of this week’s power rankings, landing at No. 29 after dropping a heart breaker to the Indianapolis Colts.
