Packer Report Special Teams Rankings

Here's our third version of the Packer Report Special Teams rankings, based on statistics through Week 11 of the season.

The Green Bay Packers' struggling special teams have fallen to 22nd in our Packer Report Special Teams Rankings.

Packer Report tracks five key special-teams statistics: Starting field position following a kickoff and kickoff return, net punting for and against, and field-goal accuracy. A No. 1 ranking means one point, a No. 2 ranking means two points and so on. The first four categories are about field position. After all, a 40-yard punt with no return is better than a 50-yard punt with a 15-yard return, and a touchback on a kickoff is better than a 30-yard return from a kick 7 yards into the end zone.

The Packers were 14th at their Week 4 bye and 18th at midseason. The Packers will be tested by the Eagles' elite special teams, which rank third.
