NFL.com
Bears ranking: 24
Last week: 24
Comments: "Oh, man -- if only the Bears could have pulled off the road win at Ford Field. Nobody -- and I mean nooooobody -- expected Chicago to climb back to 3-3 after the 0-3 start. Jay Cutler and Co. came thisclose to doing just that. There was so much back and forth in this NFC North contest, including Cutler getting it done (again) on a last-gasp drive in the fourth. This time, it was two completions to Alshon Jeffery for 49 yards that only ate up 17 seconds. Unfortunately Jeffery couldn't come up with a ball on third down in overtime, and the suddenly-feisty Bears ran out of claws."
