The Bears lost another game at home and now are back to the drawing board with three games left in the season. Here are the Week 15 NFL power rankings from various media outlets around the web:
ESPN: 19 (Last week: 21)
“The Bears must not like the song “Sweet Home Chicago.” The Bears are 1-6 at home this season, tied with the Titans for the worst home record.”
NFL.com: 20 (Last week: 16)
“Boy, right when you get excited about the Bears, they spend two weeks reminding you they are, in fact, the Bears. What the heck were offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Jay Cutler thinking on the final drive? Instead of taking vertical shots on third down, why not throw something underneath to Matt Forte to get Robbie Gould closer? No matter how effective kickers are these days, 50-yarders on wet grass are not gimmes. They aren’t 50-50 propositions, either.”
Fox Sports: 24 (Last week: 21)
“The Bears were finally able to get the passing game going, but costly mistakes on defense and the inability to stop Washington’s intermediate passing game kept Chicago’s defense on the field for over 34 minutes.”
Yahoo Sports: 20 (Last week: 16)
“Zach Miller has been a crazy story. He last played an NFL game in 2011. Then he resurfaced with the Bears this season. The last five weeks he has 278 yards and five touchdowns. Pretty cool resurgence for the 31-year old.”
Pro Football Talk: 19 (Last week: 17)
“Don’t worry, Robbie Gould. You’ll have a chance to miss key field goals with another team next year.”
USA Today: 19 (Last week: 22)
“If you’re keeping track — and we are — their last five losses have come by an average margin of 3.2 points.”
