With three teams in the top 10, the NFC North continues to dominate ESPN.com's NFL Power Rankings. A look at the latest rankings:

1. Green Bay Packers
Trending: No one forgot about them during last week's bye. You can see me babble about the Packers in the video below.

8. Detroit Lions
Trending: No change after a 45-10 victory at the Denver Broncos. It's worth noting the Lions have a higher winning percentage than four of the teams ranked above them.

10. Chicago Bears
Trending: No change after the bye week.

23. Minnesota Vikings
Trending: Up five after a 24-21 victory at the Carolina Panthers.
