The Green Bay Packers fell only one spot in the latest USA TODAY Sports NFL Power Rankings, despite their dismal performance against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Packers are preparing to face the Chicago Bears, one of the worst teams in the league, who also fell one spot after losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Bears are at No. 30 while the Packers are at No. 7.
USA TODAY's blurb about the Packers:
So at what point does fact that Aaron Rodgers' numbers have been in steady decline since 2014 become a trend we can no longer brush off?
And the rankings said this about the Bears:
Offense now ranks seventh after averaging well over 400 yards under Brian Hoyer's direction. Yet they've scored league's fewest points. Da Bears.
Elsewhere in the division, the undefeated Minnesota Vikings stand at No. 2 this week after their bye week.
The Detroit Lions jumped up another eight spots and are at No. 13 after beating the Los Angeles Rams. Matthews Stafford’s surprisingly strong play is seemingly turning around the Lions’ season.
