NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Where Bears stand before game vs. Patriots


Sunday was the right example if you happen to wanted a snapshot of how erratic the NFL is within the 12 months of our Lord 2022.

You had Geno Smith’s Seattle Seahawks pummel Justin Herbert’s Los Angeles Chargers. Tom Brady was outplayed by P.J. Walker because the “aren’t they tanking?” Panthers beat the Bucs. Oh, and Taylor Heinicke made the winning plays Aaron Rodgers couldn’t because the Commanders took down the Packers.

What a weird, weird season.

While all of the Week 7 carnage was occurring, the Bears were busy attempting to work out a technique to troubleshoot their passing attack in time for Monday night’s showdown with the Recent England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

Here’s where each team stands after Sunday’s Week 7 motion as parity continues to reign within the NFL:

32. Houston Texans (1-4-1): Hey, not less than the Texans finally got Jack Easterby out of the constructing.

31. Detroit Lions (1-5): The Lions have scored six points of their last two games. Dan Campbell’s operation is far farther away from a return to legitimacy than we thought when the season began.

30. Carolina Panthers (2-5): Similar to that, the Panthers are back within the NFC South race. No, this isn’t a joke. Why do you ask?

29. Chicago Bears (2-4): The Bears have enough problems with their passing attack, and now they must face Bill Belichick. Seems unfair.

28. Denver Broncos (2-5): The Broncos have played seven games and have scored a couple of touchdown in one among them. No less than Denver has its first-round pick. Oh … never mind.


27. Recent Orleans Saints (2-5): The Saints are bad and their cap situation is dire. There’s a reason Sean Payton got out when he did.

26. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5): The Pickett-to-Pickens connection goes to find yourself being a thing for the following 10 years, is not it?

25. Cleveland Browns (2-5): The Browns’ try and keep their season afloat before Deshaun Watson returns is failing. Who says karma doesn’t exist?

24. Washington Commanders (3-4): Taylor Heinicke and Terry McLaurin have chemistry, making this version of the Commanders far more dangerous than the one piloted by Carson Wentz. 

23. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5): Jacksonville was 2-2 with games against the Texans, Colts, and Giants on deck. They lost all three. Removing Urban Meyer hasn’t fixed every part.

22. Indianapolis Colts (3-3-1): It’s time for Matt Ryan to hold them up. The Colts are stuck because they’ll’t discover a quarterback. The search continues.

21. Arizona Cardinals (3-4): DeAndre Hopkins’ return may need got the Cardinals back on the right track momentarily, but Kyler Murray’s sideline spat with Kliff Kingsbury points to a team teetering on the brink.

20. Atlanta Falcons (3-4): The loss to the Bengals only counts as one, nevertheless it looks like it is the moment the Falcons became the team we thought they’d be when the season began.

19. Las Vegas Raiders (2-4): The Raiders got off the mat by bludgeoning the Texans. The trail back to .500 is obvious for the Silver and Black. Not dead yet.

18. Recent England Patriots (3-3): With Mac Jones expected to return Monday, it appears Bill Belichick was one among the few within the Recent England region not infected by Zappe Fever.

17. Green Bay Packers (3-4): Aaron Rodgers is attempting to spin three straight losses ahead of a date with the Bills as a very good thing. Unsure I purchase it.

16. Miami Dolphins (4-3): Tua returned and almost threw 4 interceptions (all dropped). All just isn’t well in South Beach.

15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4): Tom Brady said retirement wasn’t in his future. He might need to walk that back. Or attempt to snake his way back home to complete his profession within the Bay.

14. Los Angeles Chargers (4-3): Remember when the Chargers hired Brandon Staley over Brian Daboll? Whiff.

13. San Francisco 49ers (3-4): The trade for Christian McCaffrey was an enormous bet on the genius of Kyle Shanahan. I don’t hate it, but that’s a whole lot of picks to present up for an oft-injured running back.

12. Tennessee Titans (4-2): The Titans proceed to dominate the AFC South, a division where only mediocre quarterback play is required to come back out on top.


11. Seattle Seahawks (4-3): The Seahawks is likely to be … good?

10. Recent York Jets (5-2): We’ve got to treat the Jets the identical way we treat everyone else. If you happen to keep winning, you retain moving up.

9. Los Angeles Rams (3-3): The Rams got outbid for Christian McCaffrey by their NFC West rival. Might they give you the chance to counter by acquiring Bears pass-rusher Robert Quinn before the deadline?

8. Baltimore Ravens (4-3): Gus Edwards returned, and the Ravens got back to their ground-and-pound ways in a narrow win over the Browns. John Harbaugh’s team is likely to be starting to search out its form.

7. Dallas Cowboys (5-2): Dak Prescott’s return left so much to be desired because the Cowboys played around with the hapless Lions for 3 quarters. I still have to see more from Dallas.

6. Minnesota Vikings (5-1): With the Packers’ season circling the drain, the Vikings might give you the chance to walk to an NFC North title.

5. Recent York Giants (6-1): It’s not at all times pretty, but Brian Daboll’s Giants just keep winning. The Giants have five second-half comebacks of their six wins. Coaching matters. 

4. Cincinnati Bengals (4-3): It was only a matter of time, but Joe Burrow and the Bengals’ offense are officially back.

3. Kansas City Chiefs (5-2): Patrick Mahomes and Co. averaged 9.1 yards per play Sunday and hung 44 on the No. 1 defense within the NFL. Statement.  

2. Buffalo Bills (5-1): Coming off a bye, the Bills have a probability to drive a stake into the center of the 2022 Packers next Sunday night. Get the funeral precession ready.

1. Philadelphia Eagles (6-0): The Eagles’ bye week gave Philly sports fans time to benefit from the Phillies’ run to the World Series and ignore the proven fact that Daryl Morey has reconstructed the 2019 Rockets within the City of Brotherly Love.
