Week 11 NFL Power Rankings, Chicago Bears Edition
Jose M. Osorio / Chicago Tribune Jeremy Langford celebrates his touchdown run with Martellus Bennett in the second quarter of a 37-13 win on Nov. 15, 2015.

The Bears looked awfully impressive on Sunday in their first win over an NFC opponent since almost one year ago. Here are the Week 11 NFL power rankings from various media outlets around the web:

ESPN: 16 (Last week: 21)

“The Bears have won four of their last six since Jay Cutler returned from injury. The two losses both came on scores in the last four seconds of regulation or later.”

NFL.com: 19 (Last week: 23)

“Keep losing, Packers. Keep not paying attention to the Bears, America. Chicago balled out in St. Louis on Sunday, with its oft-maligned QB posting a 151.0 passer rating. Jeremy Langford caught seven of Jay Cutler’s tosses for a staggering (at least for an RB, anyway) 109 yards. Meanwhile, the best defensive line in football only sacked Cutler twice, while allowing the Bears’ ground attack 153 yards. So keep talking about the Packers and Vikings, but John Fox’s outfit is coming.”

Fox Sports: 17 (Last week: 23)

“With Matt Forte set to hit free agency this offseason, rookie running back Jeremy Langford is making a case that he should be Chicago’s future featured back. He has 322 total yards and three touchdowns over his past two games.”

CBS Sports: 18 (Last week: 18)

“Jay Cutler is playing so well right now. Coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase get a shot at their old team this week in the Denver Broncos.”

Yahoo Sports: 17 (Last week: 23)

“Before we anoint Jeremy Langford the next Walter Payton, it’s probably worth noting he’s averaging 3.5 yards per carry this season. But he has done well, especially in the passing game, and has pretty much spelled the end of any chance the Bears re-sign Matt Forte in free agency. It will be interesting to see how the workload is split up once Forte returns.”

Pro Football Talk: 14 (Last week: 26)

” It probably would have been easier for John Fox to get his revenge against John Elway if they hadn’t benched Peyton Manning.”

USA Today: 16 (Last week: 20)

“Kudos to this team and staff, winning two road games in six days without services of their best player, Matt Forte.”
