Green Bay Packers Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Green Bay Packers rank in terms of average, best and worst:

  • Average ranking: 5.6 (5th)
  • Best ranking: 4th (Multiple)
  • Worst ranking: 9th (USA Today)

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Packers in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 4

Week 9 could not have gone any better for them. The Packers blew out the 49ers Thursday night, and then they got to sit back and watch the Buccaneers and Seahawks lose on Sunday. At 6-2, Green Bay is tied for the best record in the NFC with the Saints and Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers is on pace for a 48-touchdown, four-interception season. He's currently +350 to win the MVP -- you know, just in case that kind of thing interests you.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 6

They beat up on a depleted San Francisco team and hold a command of the division race. The offense has been special.

USA Today -- Rank: 9

QB Aaron Rodgers now owns 52 games with at least three TD passes and zero interceptions. No one else in the Super Bowl era compares.

ESPN -- Rank: 4

Recalibrated expectation: Super Bowl

Is Aaron Rodgers running out of chances? Drafting Jordan Love might have signified that, but at least Rodgers has another legitimate run in him again this season. There's no clear-cut favorite in the NFC, and COVID-19 issues could change the fortune of any team at any moment, but the Packers have positioned themselves nicely. They're still prone to the blowout loss -- like at Tampa Bay in Week 7 -- that will remind many of the NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers last season, but if coach Matt LaFleur can keep things rolling like he has in the first half of the season, then the Packers could be there at the end. -- Rob Demovsky -- Rank: 5

Given the apocalyptic state of the 49ers' roster, it wouldn't be quite fair to call Thursday's 34-17 win a full-on Revenge Game for the Packers. But surely there was satisfaction gained after the savagery San Francisco perpetrated upon Green Bay in January's NFC title match. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams went nuts (again), as Rodgers connected with his star wideout 10 times for 173 yards and a score on 12 targets. Two days before the win, general manager Brian Gutekunst passed on the opportunity to acquire Texans playmaker Will Fuller, a move that would have added another dimension to Green Bay's receiver corps. Then again, if Allen Lazard can pick up where he left off before his core injury, the Packers should be locked and loaded on offense for the stretch run.
