FOX Sports
Bears ranking: 13
Last week: 12
Comments: "Despite playing with a hobbled Brandon Marshall and a depleted secondary, the Bears won the battle of mistakes and escaped Monday night's game with a victory. In the process, rookie CB Kyle Fuller had another impressive game with one interception, one forced fumble that wasn't recovered by the defense and another near interception. At the same time, the Bears suffered more injuries to what was already the league's thinnest secondary and this is a major issue going forward." - Dan Schneier
Division Rivals: Lions 8, Packers 17, Vikings 24
Top 5 overall: Seahawks, Bengals, Broncos, Cardinals, Chargers

Comments: "Nice road win, even if it looked like neither team wanted it there for a while. Not sure how many of you are on LinkedIn ... but if you know any defensive backs looking for work, pass their profiles along to the Bears' coaching staff, because they are seriously hurtin' for some healthy bodies." - Elliot Harrison
