NFL Week 4 Power Rankings: NFC North


It doesn't matter how crazy things are here on the NFC North blog. It's Tuesday, and that means ESPN.com is power ranking away. Let's take a look at how NFC North teams fared this week:

7. Green Bay Packers

Trending: Down three spots after a 12-7 victory* over the Seattle Seahawks.

Comment: The Packers are in the top seven despite a 1-2 record. Power rankers have feelings, too.

11. Chicago Bears

Trending: Up one after a 23-6 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Comment: Voters respect the Bears' defense, but clearly aren't convinced by their offense.

18. Detroit Lions

Trending: Down five after a 44-41 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Comment: Quarterback Matthew Stafford is hobbled and the Lions have a tougher-than-expected matchup Sunday at Ford Field.

21. Minnesota Vikings

Trending: Up eight spots after a 24-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Comment: The Vikings are this week's second-highest risers.
