Week 10 NFL Power Rankings: NFC North Maintains With Bye Weeks On ESPN, CBS Sports, Others

The Minnesota Vikings are trending upward, though not everyone is necessarily thinking playoffs. The name of the game right now is progress and a good look to the future in rookie quarterback Christian Ponder. They're either going up or generally maintaining in Week 10 NFL power rankings, but how is the rest of the division looking?

Green Bay Packers

Well, they're at the very top - and that's not likely to change. ESPN, FOX Sports, CBS Sports and SB Nation all have Green Bay at the top, and all of the other major publications should as well. They did risk losing to the San Diego Chargers this past week, but came out with the win thanks to a strong offense, as usual.

Detroit Lions

The Lions are moving up a little, despite coming off a bye week. Most power rankings have them inside the top ten, which is probably where they belong. FOX Sports has them the lowest, outside the top ten at No. 11, while SB Nation and CBS Sports have the Lions at No. 6, just outside the top five.

Chicago Bears

CBS Sports have the Bears the lowest at No. 14 in their Week 10 rankings, while ESPN moved them into the top ten at No. 9. They're in the playoff race at this point, especially after beating the Philadelphia Eagles. Chicago is looking strong and in the playoff hunt, which is reflected by their spot on the rankings.
