Packers Atop ESPN Power Rankings
Despite all the blather and bluster about the [intlink id=”374″ type=”category”]Philadelphia Eagles[/intlink] and New England Patriots, the Green Bay Packers sit firmly atop ESPN’s preseason NFL power rankings.
The Patriots were second and Eagles third.
The [intlink id=”13″ type=”category”]Chicago Bears[/intlink] came in at No. 13, the [intlink id=”126″ type=”category”]Detroit Lions[/intlink] came in at No. 18 and the [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] came in at No. 25. The [intlink id=”86″ type=”category”]Cincinnati Bengals[/intlink] were last.
The Packers were ranked first on four of five ballots and second on the fifth. The Eagles received the other first-place vote.
This, of course, is all very important because preseason power rankings determine the winner of the Super Bowl 10 out of 10 times.
It’s a scientific fact.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
