The Packers are at No. 2 in the Week 15 power rankings.

Another week, another win for the Green Bay Packers. Head coach Matt LaFleur just knows how to win in the NFC North, leading his team to their sixth in a row versus the Chicago Bears.

There were some uncharacteristic moments for the Packers in the game, such as allowing touchdown passes of 46 and 54 yards. Joe Barry’s defense has done a fantastic job of avoiding allowing big plays this season, but that wasn’t the case on Sunday night against Chicago.

Yet despite that, along with the poor special teams play we don’t need to discuss any more than we already have, the Packers still won comfortably. It says a lot about how talented this football team is.

With double-digit victories on the board for the third straight season, the Packers are well on their way to the playoffs and another Super Bowl run. Randy Gurzi of NFL Spin Zone released his Week 15 power rankings today, and the Packers remain in second position.

“Now at 10-3, they’ve asserted themselves once again as one of the best in the NFC. And this team is also built to win down the stretch,” wrote Gurzi.

Hard to argue with that.

The Arizona Cardinals remain top of the power rankings. That’s fair enough as they are yet to play in Week 15. They host the Los Angeles Rams tonight in what will be a must-see game for Packers fans.

If Los Angeles defeats Arizona, Green Bay will actually move into first place of the NFC. There would be a three-way tie between Green Bay, Arizona, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Matt LaFleur’s team would be ahead due to win percentage in games against NFC opponents.

The aim for this team is to just keep winning. Four games remain and the race for the top seed is on.
