ESPN comments:
 

It's pretty remarkable that one of the four teams with at least 11 wins this season has no player on its roster with more than two Pro Bowl selections. The four Vikings with multiple Pro Bowls all play on defense, though -- a unit that ranks third in the NFL, according to FPI.

The biggest risers of the week are the San Francisco 49ers, jumping six spots from #29 to #23. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the Los Angeles Chargers, dropping four spots from #11 to #15.

The Vikings face the Packers this Saturday night at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
