"All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said that the victor of this game could justifiably claim to the world's best team and, while they remain No 2 on the rankings, Joe Schmidt's Ireland are top of the world", Ruaidhri O'Connor wrote for the Irish Independent.
New Zealand retained their world number one status despite losing to number two side Ireland - but head coach Hansen had claimed before the clash that the victor would swipe the global bragging rights.
"The Six Nations champions made a major World Cup statement with their second win over the All Blacks in two years and for the first time in Dublin thanks to Jacob Stockdale's superb second-half try and a supreme defensive effort that kept the visitors tryless for 80 minutes".
"We felt we could go back down that short side".
"There would be no Ryan Crotty moment, rather another piece of history for Irish rugby in what is a golden age".
The 16-9 victory at the Aviva is his side's 11th straight win at the Aviva Stadium.
If they score 26 points this weekend, the All Blacks will surpass 500 for the third consecutive year, having failed to reach that marker in each of the eight years prior.
Jack Goodhue looks on the All Blacks reflect on a rare defeat. He added: 'These are the types of Test matches that get everyone up - it's No 1 v No 2 - and there's a real excitement that's building as we get closer to Saturday.
The Irish head coach felt the All Blacks may have been affected by their exertions in their win over England at Twickenham last week.

Manchester United trio send sympathy to injured Danny Welbeck, striker in hospital
He was taken off on a stretcher with his right leg heavily strapped before being rushed to hospital to assess the damage. But I think the players were concentrated on the match and we forgot this injury the next minute on the pitch.
Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has got the better of Steve Hansen again.
Their first job was to stand behind the posts as Stockdale found that if you keep probing, things can come off.
"Ask [defence coach] Andy Farrell that", said the Kiwi. James Ryan, 6. Peter O'Mahony, 7.
"The electricity in the stadium was evident from the start of Amhrán na bhFiann, through the All Blacks' haka and into game itself, the atmosphere doubtless contributing to a frenetic first half which Ireland bossed for long periods".
Handre Pollard plundered 18 points to help South Africa follow up their dramatic late win against France by becoming only the second visiting team in two years to win in Scotland with a 26-20 victory on Saturday.
One of the parts of the Ireland team that is still somewhat up in the air is who Joe Schmidt sees as the best understudy to Conor Murray at scrum-half: Connacht's Kieran Marmion or Leinster's Luke McGrath?
There is no suggestion Tuesday's session contributed to Leavy's injury, but skipper Rory Best admitted the only way to prepare to face New Zealand was to "gear up" physically.
But it was all Ireland in attack and the All Blacks were so unnerved that referee Wayne Barnes had to warn Read that the next player to incur his ire would be yellow-carded after they committed their seventh offence of the half.
