NFL Week 13 Power Rankings
By Kevin Seifert
Let's check out the NFC North's standing in ESPN.com's Week 13 Power Rankings:
6. Chicago Bears
Trending: No change after a 28-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
Comment: The Bears were still atop the NFC North when they got to the other side of Jay Cutler's concussion recovery. They're in the divisional catbird's seat.
9. Green Bay Packers
Trending: Down five after a 38-10 loss to the New York Giants.
Comment: The Packers can still win the division, and perhaps even earn a first-round bye in the playoffs, by winning the right combination of their remaining games. But when you lose by 28 points in prime time, no one misses it. The Packers were this week's biggest fallers in the rankings.
16. Minnesota Vikings
Trending: Down two after a 28-10 loss to the Bears.
Comment: The Vikings are hanging on to relevance by a thread.
20. Detroit Lions
Trending: Down one after a 34-31 overtime loss to the Houston Texans.
Comment: The Lions are suddenly in contention for a top-10 draft pick.
