The Bears stunk it up in a 23-16 home loss to the Brett Hundley led Packers on Sunday. With that, here are the Week 11 NFL power rankings from various media outlets around the web:

ESPN: 28 (Last week: 27)

“The Bears have games against the 49ers and Browns on their remaining schedule, so there are wins on the table. If Mitchell Trubisky — who has three touchdowns in five starts — can start making plays, the Bears could sneak out a few other wins.”

NFL.com: 19 (Last week: 21)

“Of all the Bears-y ways to lose, Sunday’s might’ve taken the cake. Can fans throw a challenge flag on their head coach while he’s throwing the challenge flag? I would rehash what happened, but haven’t fans in Chicago been through enough? (You can watch the Benny Cunningham play here.) By the end, it looked like Brett Hundley and the Packers wanted it more, like when Jamaal Williams ran through three tacklers to convert a second-and-4, causing the Bears to burn timeouts just ahead of the two-minute warning. Better news: A little more was put on Mitchell Trubisky’s plate, with more good plays than bad.”

Yahoo Sports: 26 (Last week: 26)

“It will be interesting to see how the Bears rebuild their receiving corps next offseason. It’s very tough to find a true No. 1 receiver in free agency, and drafting one is never a sure thing (Kevin White anyone?). But improving at receiver has to be priority A, B and C in the offseason. I’m not sure we’d see a Carson Wentz-type explosion in year two even with a major upgrade in Trubisky’s supporting cast, but I do think he can be very good. He needs help though.”

USA Today: 27 (Last week: 19)

“John Fox’s decision to challenge RB Benny Cunningham’s not-really-a-touchdown right at top of the list of worst game management moves of 2017.”

CBS Sports: 29 (Last week: 28)

“Losing to the Packers pretty much means it’s a non-playoff season. What does that mean for the future of coach John Fox?”

Walter Football: 21 (Last week: 19)

“Underrated NFL Team: The Bears lost by a touchdown to the Packers. They also happened to lose a touchdown because of John Fox’s stupid challenge. Had the Bears maintained possession, perhaps they would’ve forced overtime. I think they took that game for granted anyway after seeing Brett Hundley struggle so much on national TV. I expect Chicago to rebound, especially with Kyle Long due back from injury.”

STORY: The Bears will never succeed under John Fox
