NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: ESPN Has Chicago Bears In Top Five

ESPN has released its version of the Week 11 NFL Power Rankings, and according to their panel of five writers the Chicago Bears are worthy of a No. 5 overall ranking. Even with the four spot jump from last week, the Bears are still ranked behind the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints. The good news is that the Bears have moved off the fringe and are firmly in the playoffs in the new update.

Whenever Devin Hester returns a kick for a score, this team is basically unbeatable. (Clayton)
