NFL power rankings, Week 15: Bears fall far after another loss

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears fell to No. 15 on the weekly power rankings after a loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Chicago Bears are in a very bad spot, especially if they can't dig themselves out of their current losing skid. After a six-game winning streak, the Bears have lose four of their last five, including two-straight games to the Seattle Seahawks, and most recently, the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

They're 8-5, and given their current play, they could easily lose out and finish 8-8, which would be shocking given their start. Joel Thorman of SB Nation released his Week 15 power rankings, and he's got the Bears all the way down at No. 15.

15. Chicago Bears (LW: 9, 8-5): Maybe the Bears aren't a playoff team. They were 7-1 at one point. Now best case scenario is looking like 10 wins, which would probably be enough. But what if they slip up?

Chicago just gave up first place in the NFC North to the Green Bay Packers, and play them again on Sunday. If they lose, that will clinch the division for the Packers, who had a very slow start to their season. After that, they have games against the Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions, though those games look like wins.
