The Packers are No. 1 in the NFL Spin Zone power rankings.

No team has been more impressive than the Green Bay Packers this season.

Matt LaFleur’s team has made winning look easy in the opening four games, taking a perfect record into their well-deserved bye week. During their time off, they’ve jumped up in the power rankings.

In this week’s edition of the NFL Spin Zone power rankings by Randy Gurzi, the Packers move ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs into first position. The Chiefs gave up 40 points in a loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, so it makes sense for the defending champs to fall in the rankings with the Packers taking their spot.

Despite the fact they’ve just been on a bye week, the Packers’ 152 points this season is still good for fourth-most in the NFL.

In terms of an average, no team comes close to Green Bay’s league-best 38 points per game. The Packers’ 445.5 total yards on offense is good for number two in the NFL, while they also rank third in passing offense and fifth in rushing offense.

The Packers are also the only team in the league to not turn the ball over a single time this season. They’ve been incredibly efficient on offense.

With four impressive wins already this season, Green Bay is well on track for another playoff berth.

Under LaFleur, this team has now won nine straight in the regular season, and his overall record moves to 17-4 including the postseason. It’s a simply phenomenal start to LaFleur’s head coaching career.

There are a number of great teams in Super Bowl contention this year. Despite their loss on the Sunday, the Chiefs are still the team to beat. The Baltimore Ravens, Seattle Seahawks, and Buffalo Bills all look the real deal too.

However, entering Week 6, it’s hard to argue against the Packers being in first place of the power rankings.
