After a one-week hiatus from the top 10 of SB Nation’s NFL power rankings, the Green Bay Packers have returned.Sunday’s 22-0 shutout of the Buffalo Bills might have left quarterback Aaron Rodgers wanting more, but it moved the needle enough to push the Packers up to No. 10 in the Week 5 edition of the power rankings. The teamAuthentic Josh Jackson Jersey  dropped out of the top 10 after losing to Washington a week earlier.The Packers’ new position makes them the highest-ranked NFC North team. The Chicago Bears come closest, trailing Green Bay at No. 11 after demolishing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Minnesota Vikings, the previous lead dogs in the division within the power rankings, fell out of the top 10 down to 12th following their Thursday night loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions find themselves all the way back at No. 27.The Packers performed similarly well elsewhere on the internet this week. ESPN and NFL.com pushed them up to No. 9, up one and three spots respectively. Yahoo Sports, who have kept Green Bay higher on the power rankings than others Youth Jamaal Williams Jersey , ranked them again at No. 7. Only USA Today left the team outside the top 10, slotting them in as the 11th-best team in the NFL.Tuesday Cheese Curds: Packers have their third starting receiver in Geronimo Allison There is a lot to take from the first game of the 2018 regular season for the Green Bay Packers.Aaron Rodgers isn’t human (not exactly breaking news), the new offense looks similar to the old offense and the defense could very well be good (rough first drive aside).There is one other storyline heading into the season that has already begun to play out: who will emerge at wide receiver with the departure of Jordy Nelson?If you thought one of the three rookie receivers, that would incorrect although there are still 15 games to go.Instead, the answer is Geronimo Allison.While he won’t be targeted as frequently as Davante Adams or Randall Cobb, he showed the ability to get open and make the tough catches sometimes required in the Green Bay offense.His nice five-catch, 69-yard performance against the Bears was punctuated by a great catch on a 39-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers.The then undrafted rookie earned the trust of his quarterback in 2016 and after a rough sophomore season, he seems to have begun to blossom as a genuine third receiver.On that touchdown catch Allison was able to separate, slap Kyle Fuller’s hands away and then go up and make the catch.That’s growth right there.You can read more on Allison’s performance and praise continues to come Rodgers’ way from all corners of sport in today’s cheese curds.Geronimo Allison emerging as genuine weapon for the Packers—PackersNews.comAllison is tall and possesses some decent speed.

To their credit, the linebacker and coach owned their mistakes and will try and learn from them.
