The Detroit Lions might be one of the NFL’s two undefeated teams, but ESPN.com’s power rankers aren’t quite ready to power rank them in that order.
The Lions remained No. 4 overall on the Week 5 ballot, trailing the Green Bay Packers (4-0), New Orleans Saints (3-1) and New England Patriots (3-1). I'm not a member of the committee, but if I were, I don't think I would have voted any differently.
Nevertheless, the NFC North reclaimed its rightful spot atop the composite division voting with an average ranking of 13.8. The individual details:
1. Green Bay Packers
Trending: Make it five consecutive weeks atop this list.
4. Detroit Lions
Trending: No change after a 34-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
18. Chicago Bears
Trending: No change after a 34-29 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
Trending: Down two after a 22-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
