Packer Report Final Special Teams Rankings

Green Bay finished 31st in our field-position-driven special teams rankings last season. Where did it finish this season?

For the third year, Packer Report has produced special-teams rankings. Our rankings focus on the heart of special teams — field position — along with field-goal accuracy. First column is net punting average. Second column is opponent net punting average. Third is average starting field position following a kickoff return (not return average). Fourth is opponent average starting field position following a kickoff (again, not return average). Fifth is field-goal accuracy.
