The Bears rallied back to pick up their third victory this season, all coming against an AFC West opponent. Here are the Week 10 NFL power rankings from various media outlets around the web:
ESPN: 21 (Last week: 28)
“The Bears are 3-2 since Jay Cutler returned from injury, and all five games have been decided by a field goal or less. Cutler is 10-6 in those games since 2009.”
NFL.com: 23 (Last week: 25)
“Monday night marked the fifth game in a row where Jay Cutler balled in the fourth quarter, making clutch throws when his team needed them. And this time, Jeremy Langford played up to the moment, too. Not to quibble, but wondering if Cutler could have taken something off that Nolan Ryan fastball to Zach Miller. Dude stabbed it out of the air like Mike Stanley or (insert any early-’90s spare Rangers catcher here. Geno Petralli?). What a game for the Bears, who have patched together three wins in their past five outings. Sid Luckman is smiling from somewhere in that big NFL title game up in the sky — where the score is always 73-nothing, good guys.”
Fox Sports: 23 (Last week: 25)
“Jay Cutler might be playing the best football of his career when you consider the injuries the Bears have suffered along the offensive line, at wide receiver and at running back. In Week 9, he led a game-winning fourth-quarter touchdown drive.”
Yahoo Sports: 23 (Last week: 28)
“Jay Cutler passed Sid Luckman for the most touchdown passes thrown in franchise history. Luckman was a great player, but it still says something about the Bears that until Monday night that record was held by someone who last played in 1950.”
Pro Football Talk: 26 (Last week: 27)
“John Fox’s first year in Chicago was a very good year for the Bears to play the teams of the AFC West.”
USA Today: 20 (Last week: 27)
“If this is Jay Cutler’s final season in Chicago, he’ll leave as Bears’ all-time leader in TD passes. Sorry, Sid.”
