A 17-14 win by the Minnesota Vikings (2-0) over the Green Bay Packers (1-1) Sunday in Minneapolis was enough to propel the Vikes into early sole possession of the top spot in the NFC North, and into the Top-10 this week in ESPN's NFL Power Rankings. See where they landed along with the rest of the league.

ESPN comments:
 

Maybe Sam Bradford is good? Or maybe Stefon Diggs is just that good. Bradford was 9-of-10 for 182 yards when targeting Diggs in his Vikings debut. Bradford will need another big game from Diggs to win at Carolina in Week 3.

The biggest riser of the week is the San Diego Chargers jumping six spots from #25 to #19. The biggest fall of the week belongs to both the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, each plunging eight notches. 

The Vikes face the Carolina   Panthers Sunday afternoon in Charlotte.

Skol!
