Who saw this coming? After losing four games in a row, the Green Bay Packers were finished. Forget about playoff chances. This team was headed toward a top-five draft pick. Matt LaFleur's future was uncertain, and nobody knew what the Packers would do at quarterback.

Then, the calendar turned to November, and everything changed. The Packers have won four of their past five games, and the most impressive part is the teams they have beaten.

Green Bay's current three-game win streak isn't against teams picking inside the top five of the NFL Draft. In consecutive weeks, the Packers defeated the Los Angeles Chargers, Detroit Lions, and Kansas City Chiefs. Two of those teams are Super Bowl contenders. The Chiefs are the defending champions.

Jordan Love's rise has been incredible to watch, but it has taken a team effort to get to this point. With the Packers surging, these five players' stock is rising by the week.

Rashan Gary

It's easy to forget that Rashan Gary only recently returned from a torn ACL. He is one of the best pass rushers in the league this season, making nine sacks in 12 games. He has only started eight of those games, as the Packers had him on a snap count in the first quarter of the season. Gary didn't play over 60 percent of the defensive snaps until Week 7, but it didn't stop him from dominating.

And the former first-round pick has been influential during Green Bay's winning run, making 4.5 sacks and six quarterback hits in the past three games. He has also forced two fumbles.

Gary is a game-changer, and offenses have to game plan for him. He is such a powerful player and battles on every play. Even when he isn't the player making the sacks or QB hits, his presence takes so much attention away from offensive linemen and makes life easier for the other pass rushers.

Gary is having a dominant season. No team will want to face this pass rush in the playoffs.
