After two straight losses, the Chicago Bears are down in the Power Rankings, but not out. The Bears sit just outside the top 10 in the composite rankings, with a cumulative total of 11.2. Here are the individual results:
Brandon Marshall's five targets Sunday accounted for 15 percent of Bears passes, lowest since Marshall joined the team. The Bears are 0-4 when Marshall's targeted on fewer than 20 percent of passes.
Yes, we realize the Bears have beaten the Bengals, who are ranked higher, but the Packers destroyed the Lions, who destroyed the Bears, and Cincinnati bested Green Bay. Not to mention, this team has dropped two straight. And now defensive tackle Nate Collins – who had been playing in place of Henry Melton, who is on injured reserve — is out for the year.
A bright spot from Sunday's loss to the Saints has to be Alshon Jeffery, who posted what amounts to easily the best performance of his career with 218 yards receiving and a touchdown (of course, I chose this week to drop him from my fantasy team).
They may not have to worry about winning 10 games and not making the playoffs.
Alshon Jeffery now holds the Bears franchise record for receiving yards in a single game with 218 in a loss on Sunday.
Losing at home the way they did to the Saints has to be concerning. The defense just isn't the same.
