Caleb Hanie and the Chicago Bears' offense struggled once again, and the Bears fell 10-3 at home to the struggling Kansas City Chiefs. It wasn't a good performance for a team with NFC Wildcard aspirations.
Pete Prisco of CBS Sports has released his Week 14 NFL Power Rankings, and the Chicago Bears have moved down three more spots to No. 15 overall. The move pushes them down to the seventh-best team in the NFC, behind other NFC wildcard hopefuls like the above the No. 13 Detroit Lions, but behind the No. 9 Dallas Cowboys and the No. 8 Atlanta Falcons.
Here is what Prisco had to say as he moves the Bears down to No. 15:
Caleb Hanie isn't the answer and now they will have to try and make a playoff push without Matt Forte. Good luck.
