The national NFL power rankings still have the Chicago Bears too low

Looking at the national NFL power rankings, it seems to me that the Chicago Bears are still too low on this list. I understand the team just lucked into a 1-0 start when D’Andre Swift dropped the winning touchdown with only a few seconds left in the game. Knowing this I am sure played a part in the rankings, but this does not excuse the fact that three of the bigger-followed national sports media outlets have the Bears too low in their power rankings.

We should not forget how potent the Detroit Lions offense was to start the NFL season in 2019. Many thought the team was a playoff contender. Not having Kenny Golladay hurts, but Matthew Stafford knows how to spread the ball around and put up points.

He also knows how to get the ball out quickly. This is how the Lions started the game. It was not until they needed to establish some longer routes that the defense started to get pressure on him. The Chicago Bears need more pressure from their front seven if the defense is going to become a top-10 unit in the NFL again.

Let’s face it, power rankings mean very little, but we all like to look at them anyway. Each week we will take a look at where the Chicago Bears land on the ESPN, NFL and CBS power rankings. We will discuss if the spot seems fair or if the rankings seem a little off for some reason. As of now, all three seem off.
