Here are your Week Four Chicago Bears power rankings from various media outlets from around the web.

ESPN: 8 (Last week: 11)

Analysis, “Ryan Mundy beat Chris Johnson to the end zone for a pick-six Monday. Since 2010, the Bears have returned 19 interceptions for touchdowns, six more than the next closest team.”

NFL.com: 8 (Last week: 11)

Analysis, “Nice road win, even if it looked like neither team wanted it there for a while. Not sure how many of you are on LinkedIn … but if you know any defensive backs looking for work, pass their profiles along to the Bears’ coaching staff, because they are seriously hurtin’ for some healthy bodies. My intuition tells me Marc Trestman is more of a Myspace guy.”

Yahoo Sports: 13 (Last week: 12)

Analysis, “Their best player on Monday night was the opposing quarterback.”

FOX Sports: 13 (Last week: 12)

Analysis, “Despite playing with a hobbled Brandon Marshall and a depleted secondary, the Bears won the battle of mistakes and escaped Monday night’s game with a victory. In the process, rookie CB Kyle Fuller had another impressive game with one interception, one forced fumble that wasn’t recovered by the defense and another near interception. At the same time, the Bears suffered more injuries to what was already the league’s thinnest secondary and this is a major issue going forward.”

CBS Sports: 12 (Last week: 9)

Analysis, “Winning consecutive primetime games on the road is really impressive. The defense is getting better.”

Pro Football Talk: 13 (Last week: 19)

Analysis, “Two non-convincing road wins are still a lot better than two non-convincing road losses.”
