2021 NFL Power Rankings: Chicago Bears

Throughout the 2021 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 7 roundup for the Bears in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 19

The Bears are a better team than they showed in Week 1 versus the Rams, but this past Sunday's loss to the visiting Packers reinforced the fact that Chicago struggles to beat quality opponents. My 4.8 rating might seem a tad harsh, but the Bears (3-3) are at Tampa Bay (5-1) next week. Matt Nagy's team could be back to below .500 in the blink of an eye. The rating accurately reflects that. -- Jeff Dickerson

NFL.com -- Rank: 23

Not enough offense. It's been a common lament around the Bears for -- well, pretty much forever, it feels like. And it was the easiest way to explain another loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Chicago actually got out of the gates quickly with a Justin Fields-led scoring drive to start the game, but the Bill Lazor attack went cold after that. When a Darnell Mooney touchdown catch pulled the Bears within a field goal in the fourth quarter, Rodgers marched the Packers 75 yards on seven plays for the clinching touchdown -- capped with a viral moment that left Bears fans praying the rocky Rodgers/Packers marriage disintegrates in totality after this season.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 19

Justin Fields has had some flashes, but he is too inconsistent to win each week right now. There will be growing pains with rookie starters - and he's having some.

USA Today -- Rank: 16

Rookie QB Justin Fields has now started four games ... so what next to animate the league's worst overall offense?

The Athletic -- Rank: 20

Rookie Heat Check: Things have been considerably better for first-round pick Justin Fields since his starting debut against the Browns. In that 20-9 loss on Sept. 26, Fields was sacked nine times for minus-67 yards and threw for 68 yards for a grand total of 1 net passing yard. He bounced back in consecutive weeks to help the Bears win back-to-back games. In both contests, his completion percentage was 60 or higher. For the year, Field has two passing touchdowns, one rushing TD and three interceptions. Chicago needs to do a better job of keeping him upright, though, as he's been sacked 16 times in his four starts.
