The Packers are second in the Week 13 NFL Spin Zone power rankings.

Once again, Matt LaFleur’s Green Bay Packers bounced back from defeat in style, beating the Los Angeles Rams 36-28 at Lambeau Field.

Another impressive performance by the Packers up against an NFC rival, having already defeated the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers on the road earlier in the year.

The NFC West is arguably the toughest division in football but the Packers have beaten all four teams this season.

Packers remain second in NFL Spin Zone power rankings

NFL Spin Zone’s Randy Gurzi has released his Week 13 power rankings, and Green Bay remains in second place after its impressive victory on Sunday. The NFC-leading Cardinals are still ahead in first place.

“No one wants to see Matt LaFleur after suffering a loss,” wrote Gurzi.

And he’s absolutely right. In his three years as head coach, Green Bay has lost nine regular-season games. It has bounced back with a victory after all nine. How about that?

LaFleur’s team just doesn’t lose two games in a row.

Sitting at 9-3, well in control of the NFC North and just a half-game behind Arizona but with the all-important head-to-head tiebreaker, LaFleur’s team has a great opportunity. A chance to replicate last season’s achievement of securing the NFC’s top seed. It would be the third time in as many seasons Green Bay had earned a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The good news is that three of the remaining five games are at Lambeau Field. The Packers are a perfect 5-0 at home this season, and 19-2 overall under LaFleur.

The Cardinals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the Packers’ biggest rivals for the top seed. Arizona has games with the Rams, Indianapolis Colts, and Dallas Cowboys to come. The Packers just need to win one more game than them to finish ahead in the NFC standings.

The Bucs’ schedule is easier although they do have games with the Buffalo Bills and New Orleans Saints to come.
