2022 NFL Power Rankings: Green Bay Packers

Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 18 roundup for the Green Bay Packers in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 12

Regular season in five words or fewer: You're saying there's a chance

At one point this season, the Packers had a 3% chance to make the playoffs. They were 4-8 and likely needed to win out and get some help along the way. A month later, they've done their part by winning four in a row. They got all the help they needed to the point where all they have to do is win Sunday's regular-season finale against the Lions and they're in.

NFL.com -- Rank: 9

The Packers are on the doorstep of the playoffs after their fourth consecutive win, and the team's surge is not all about Aaron Rodgers. While the offense has found its footing during this run of success, it's the sudden rise of the previously disappointing defense that has changed the feel of this team. Joe Barry's side of the ball registered four turnovers in a blowout of the Vikings, one week after Green Bay picked off Tua Tagovailoa on three consecutive fourth-quarter possessions to seal a win on Christmas Day. A victory over the Lions on Sunday night punches Green Bay's ticket to the playoffs for the fourth straight year under Matt LaFleur. It would be a remarkable achievement for a team that was once 3-6 and riding a five-game losing streak.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 16

If they beat the Lions, they are in the playoffs. That will be a challenge, but they are playing much better.

USA Today -- Rank: 13

Don't R-E-L-A-X now Green Bay fans, but one more win, and it will be time to C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E four playoff trips in the four years under head coach Matt LaFleur, who owns an 18-1 regular-season record after November.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 10

No, the NFL doesn't rig things so Green Bay makes the playoffs. The Lions are going to play hard regardless of what happens with the Seahawks game. The NFL just preferred prime-time ratings over what's technically "fair" in the NFC wild-card race. Won't be the last time. It's also not the first sports league or any other entity to make a decision based on ratings.
