, Week 6: Green Bay tumbles after Lions loss After minimal variation within SB Nation’s NFL power rankings through the first four weeks of the season, the Green Bay Packers dropped well out of the top 10 following their 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. This week, the Packers fell to No. 15, their lowest position of 2018.The drop makes sense given their performance. Turnovers and a total of five missed kicks by Mason Crosby (four field-goal attempts, one extra point) helped the Lions to a relatively easy victory despite the Packers producing almost exactly double the total yardage and more than 2 yards more per play.
