Rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky earned his first career win in a whacky 27-24 overtime win over Baltimore. With that, here are the Week 7 NFL power rankings from various media outlets around the web:

ESPN: 28 (Last week: 30)

"Mitchell Trubisky just got his first NFL win, but he might not get many more in upcoming weeks. The Panthers, Saints, Packers, Lions and Eagles make up the next five opponents for the Bears. All are currently .500 or better.

NFL.com: 21 (Last week: 25)

"Kudos to the Bears, for the important win on the road and for having the guts to bench the big contract and play the kid. Those two thoughts tie together, as getting a road win against a quality defense early in a quarterback's career is, simply put, career-building. Yes, even if he wasn't an overpowering force in the win. Mitchell Trubisky only attempted 16 passes, completing half of them. It was a "game manager" quarterback job if there ever was one. The young man didn't throw any catastrophic picks, while Chicago's run game and secondary won the day. Jordan Howard put up 167 yards on 36 carries. Adrian Amos took back an interception 90 yards to halt a Ravens scoring opportunity while creating a score of his own (and putting the Bears up 24-13). Next up: Panthers, at Soldier Field."

Yahoo Sports: 28 (Last week: 29)

"Mitchell Trubisky’s development will be the story of the season. He hasn’t been very consistent, and didn’t play well Sunday, but then he makes a few big plays and reminds you why he’s on the field. His completion to Kendall Wright on third down in overtime set up the game-winning field goal, and was a play you want to see from a top-end quarterback. Now, he needs to do that consistently."

USA Today: 27 (Last week: 25)

"Despite getting limited offensive contributions, this defense has shone, holding last four opponents to 300 yards or fewer."

CBS Sports: 22 (Last week: 28)

"Winning at Baltimore was impressive for this young team. The defense won that game."

STORY: The Bears defense is real but Trubisky and Howard are exciting as well

    If management dosnt get someone on the offensive line, the kids going to get killed. He needs 2 or 3 more seconds to find an open receiver.
