Last week: 5 (+1)

Record: 6-2

Remember when the Packers and 49ers were both 1-2? They’ve won a combined 9 straight games and the 4 losses between them are all against top-10 teams in these Power Rankings. Colin Kaepernick has improved drastically recently and the 49ers are now moving the chains at a 74% rate, as opposed to 70% for their opponents, a differential that is 8th best in the NFL and sharply climbing. The biggest thing working against them is that Super Bowl runner ups almost never make the Super Bowl the following year and even less frequently win it all, but they certainly have the talent to buck the trend if everything falls right.
