2021 NFL Power Rankings: Green Bay Packers

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Green Bay Packers rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Packers in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 3

The offense is dominant, the defense has been serviceable and the special teams are a disaster. Sunday's win over the Bears was a microcosm of the Packers' season and these rankings: Green Bay gave up a 97-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first half and allowed Chicago to recover an onside kick in the fourth quarter, yet the Packers scored 45 points and returned an interception for a score. If the Packers don't get the third part fixed, though, it could ruin their season. -- Rob Demovsky

NFL.com -- Rank: 1

Bad news for the NFC: You had your chance to play the Packers when their offense was mortal. The last three weeks have seen the return of the unstoppable Green Bay attack that defined most of last season for the defending (and future) NFC North champions. As Aaron Rodgers keeps talking about his toe injury getting worse and worse, his play gets better and better. The reigning MVP delivered a masterful performance on Sunday night against the Bears and has thrown 10 touchdown passes against zero interceptions with a completion percentage just shy of 70 percent since Week 11. When you combine this version of the offense with a top-10 defense, it adds up to the best, most complete team in the NFL.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 1

They just keep on rolling, even with a ton of injuries on the offensive line. Aaron Rodgers helps cure those issues.

USA Today -- Rank: 1

Signed off Arizona's practice squad two months ago, CB Rasul Douglas has to be the best in-season pickup of the year. All he's done is foil the Cardinals with a game-sealing interception and has now become the first Green Bay player with pick-sixes in successive weeks during the Super Bowl era (since 1966).

The Athletic -- Rank: 1

Worst-case scenario: Aaron Rodgers' littlest toe becomes a very big deal. After suffering what he described as a "setback" to his broken pinkie toe on Sunday night, this little piggy should have Packers fans very worried. We've already seen the Packers live their worst-case scenario, when they scored just one late touchdown with Jordan Love at QB in a 13-7 loss to the Chiefs. Perhaps Love would fare better in his next start, and coach Matt LaFleur would have learned from the game-planning mistakes in Love's first start, but no one should feel great about the Packers' postseason prospects should Rodgers' toe knock him out.
