2. Green Bay Packers (2-2)

Points For: 100

Points Against: 96

It shouldn't be too shocking to see these power rankings fall just as the standings are right now, with the Packers checking in at no. 2 in the division and no. 2 in point differential. Through Week 4, the Packers have scored 100 points while allowing 96 on defense.

Speaking of defense, that's the big topic of discussion over the last few days in Green Bay. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry has received a ton of criticism for how his defense has performed thus far, and especially against the Detroit Lions in Week 4. That game saw the Lions completely dominate in the trenches, rushing for 211 yards on the Green Bay front.

For the Packers to get ahead in the standings and any sort of power rankings going forward, it's going to take a drastic change from Barry and his defense. Either that, or Barry needs to go. If you ask Packer fans, the latter idea seems to be the favorite. Is Barry finally going to get the boot? If he does, we could see improvement come immediately from that group.

Offensively, Jordan Love has been both good and bad. We've talked at length about his areas of improvement, and if he can hone in on his accuracy, he and this offense will be much better off.
