2020 NFL Power Rankings: Chicago Bears

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Chicago Bears rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 9 roundup for the Bears in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 16

I'm not so sure Troy Aikman has ever been more disgusted watching an NFL offense. He was crushing the Bears all game long during the FOX broadcast and seemed to be particularly annoyed with Jimmy Graham. The Bears battled back from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit but managed just 8 yards on their one possession in overtime. Chicago has dropped back-to-back games and travels to Tennessee Sunday.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 16

Their fast start looks to be fading away with two losses in a row. At least the offense got them back into it against the Saints, which is progress.

USA Today -- Rank: 17

This offense had been basically punchless all season ... until (now suspended) WR Javon Wims did his best to change that.

ESPN -- Rank: 13

Reason for optimism: K Cairo Santos

Santos single-handedly solved Chicago's kicker crisis. Signed in late summer after Eddy Pineiro suffered a groin injury, Santos has been the Bears' best offensive weapon through eight games. The veteran kicker is an impressive 14-of-16 on field goal attempts on the season. Santos went 3-for-3 in Sunday's loss to the Saints, including a 51-yarder at the end of regulation that sent the game to overtime. Santos kicked for five different teams (including the Bears) from 2017 to 2019, but he might have found a permanent home in Chicago. -- Jeff Dickerson

NFL.com -- Rank: 15

The Bears nearly did it again on Sunday, rallying back from a double-digit fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime against the Saints. But the offense stalled in its one possession in the extra period, and the defense couldn't make a final stand in a 26-23 loss. Nick Foles delivered another uninspired performance, prompting FOX announcer Troy Aikman at one point to utter the line, "This is where the Bears miss Mitch Trubisky." Hard to say that's true, but it's become increasingly clear that the Foles playing in Chicago isn't the same guy who torched Bill Belichick in Super Bowl LII. Could the younger, more athletic Trubisky ultimately be the better option for the 5-3 Bears? It reminds us of the ancient football adage: If you have two quarterbacks, you really have none.
