NFL Week 4 Power Rankings: NFC North
By Kevin Seifert
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.
*Sorry, couldn't resist. Official final: Seahawks 14, Packers 12.
