The Bears got steamrolled by Philadelphia 31-3 on Sunday and things are getting uglier by the second for John Fox’s group. With that, here are the Week 13 NFL power rankings from various media outlets around the web:

ESPN: 26 (Last week: 25)

“Luck or skill? The Bears have forced 14 fumbles on defense and recovered 11 of them, tied for most in the NFL. The rate of recovery (79 percent) is best in the NFL. Probably luck — but hey, it doesn’t change that the Bears still rate well in the stat.”

NFL.com: 25 (Last week: 19)

“This space has defended the Bears and their poor record just about every week … Well, that’s a little tough this time around. Sure, those were the one-loss Eagles out on the field Sunday. Chicago has not graduated to that level. Maybe Mitch Trubisky pulls a Wentz next season. That aside, the Bears got absolutely throttled. By every measure. They got outscored 31-3. Outrushed 176-6. Out-time of possessed, 37 minutes to 23. Time of possessed — sounds like a Rob Zombie flick. Fitting. That was a horror show from John Fox’s team.”

Yahoo Sports: 28 (Last week: 26)

“If the Bears don’t go 4-1 the rest of the way, John Fox is on his way to a third straight 10-loss season. Most coaches don’t even get a chance for three straight double-digit loss seasons, much less a shot at four. A change would probably be for the best anyway. The Bears need a coaching staff that is better equipped to handle Mitch Trubisky’s development.”

USA Today: 28 (Last week: 24)

“They gained all of 140 yards Sunday. Chicago must find Mitchell Trubisky his version of Sean McVay in the offseason, whether at head coach or OC.”

CBS Sports: 29 (Last week: 29)

“With a rookie quarterback, it’s all about next year anyway. That means taking lumps like they did against the Eagles.”

Pro Football Talk: 27 (Last week: 27)

“The Superfans switched to sushi? I thought they were baccala men.”

Walter Football: 19 (Last week: 20)

“The Bears have dropped three in a row, but they were without Danny Trevathan for the trio of contests. Trevathan is not only the heart and soul of Chicago’s defense, but he also happens to be the brains of the operation. The Bears frequently blow coverages with Trevathan being out of the lineup, so their defense will see a huge improvement once the star linebacker returns to the field.”
