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 7 roundup for the Packers in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 7

The 38-3 season-opening loss to the Saints felt like a season ago. The Packers have won five straight since and still haven't quite figured out their new defense yet. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams have continued what is perhaps the best connection in the league, while Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon have been the perfect counter when teams focus coverage on Adams. The only thing that could derail them seems to be if they can't get their injury situation under control. After Green Bay lived a charmed existence in that regard during its past two seasons (both 13-3), the injuries are piling up. -- Rob Demovsky

NFL.com -- Rank: 6

Don't let the long hair, laconic demeanor and Hawaiian summers fool you: Aaron Rodgers remains a gnarly competitor with a Jordan-like ability to find motivation that will raise his play. We saw that on Sunday at Soldier Field, when the reigning MVP iced the game with a touchdown scramble, then delivered a pointed message to Bears fans jeering him from the end-zone section. "All my f---ing life, I own you," Rodgers shouted. "I still own you. I still own you." His 22-5 record against the Bears stands as the third-best winning percentage (.815) by a QB against a single opponent since 1950, among those with a minimum of 25 starts, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 2

They have a lot of injuries on defense, but they held up against the Bears. It wasn't always pretty last week, but good teams find a way to win those games. This is a good team.

USA Today -- Rank: 6

They have won five in a row and could soon get All-Pro LT David Bakhtiari, who tore an ACL in December, back in the lineup to protect QB Aaron Rodgers. Stock up.

The Athletic -- Rank: 7

Rookie Heat Check: No rookie has more passes defended (seven) than Eric Stokes. That mark is also tied for third-best in the league among all defensive backs. Quarterbacks continue to challenge the corner, with 37 targets. He's allowed 21 completions, 223 yards and one TD in coverage.
