Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Andre Ellington

18. Chicago Bears (LW: 15)

It’s hard to figure out who’s to blame for the Bears’ disappointing season. Jay Cutler has been either very good or very bad, and there’s no middle ground. But the defense has been equally as inconsistent, and there’s no help from the special teams unit. Perhaps Marc Trestman could be on the hot seat.

What to know: “Cutler completed 3-of-11 passes for 52 yards and an interception on throws 15 or more yards downfield Sunday. Cutler entered the game with the league’s fourth-worst completion percentage on deep passes (32.4 percent), and his five interceptions on such throws are tied for second-most in the NFL.” (ESPN Stats & Info).
