Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

1. Green Bay Packers (LW: 2)

The winner would tell the story, and Green Bay is now talking. The Packers’ home game against the Patriots on Sunday was billed as a potential Super Bowl preview, with arguably the best team in each conference squaring off for Power Ranking Supremacy. Surely, more was at stake for Green Bay than recognition as the league’s top team, and with Arizona’s second loss in two games, the Packers now share a piece of the NFC’s best record with the Cardinals and Eagles. Green Bay has been thoroughly dominant of late – an average margin of victory of over 20 points for its last four games – and the Packers appear to have hit their stride at the perfect time. One odd anomaly for this otherwise thriving team is that each of its three losses this season have been by double digits. While they have operated as a boom-or-bust team throughout the course of the year, they are certainly exploding at the moment.
