NFL power rankings: Detroit Lions come in at 13 in Week 7

Monday night was another tough loss for the Detroit Lions. They dropped to 2-2-1 on the season after falling to the Green Bay Packers on a last-second field goal.

The official site of the NFL released their Week 7 power rankings and the Lions didn’t move. They still hold the No. 13 spot out of 32 teams. Here’s what writer Dan Hanzus had to say about Detroit’s ranking this week:

A brutal loss for the Lions, who have every right to be furious after a pair of bogus illegal-hands-to-the-face penalties on Trey Flowers all but doomed them in the fourth quarter. In Detroit, we imagine these blown calls might paper over the Lions‘ shortcomings, which included blowing a 13-point lead, settling for five field goals on multiple trips to the Packers‘ side of the field and allowing 100 yards rushing on the ground for the fifth consecutive game. The Lions once again proved they can hang with the NFL’s best teams … but can they get over the hump?

Meanwhile, the Packers moved from No. 5 to 4 on the rankings list. Is 13 a good spot for the Lions right now?
