The Chicago Bears moved back into the top 10 in NFL power rankings from around the web following their win over the St. Louis Rams.

The Chicago Bears are back in the top 10 of most NFL power rankings from around the web after soundly defeating the St. Louis Rams 23-6 last weekend. The Bears fell out of the top 10 after losing to the Packers in Week 2, but moved back up this week. Despite their high ranking, all of the power rankings are not sold on the Bears just yet.

In Joel Thorman's rankings at SB Nation, the Bears are up five spots from last week coming in at No. 8. Thorman notes that the Bears can be either very good or very bad.

8. Chicago Bears (LW: 13, 2-1): This is my "They're ranked way too high" team. I wouldn't call them a stable team -- I feel like they could implode at any time -- but when they're on, they're very good. Give it to me, commenters.

That theme carries around to the rest of the power rankings as well, where the Bears only moved up one spot at each site. The ESPN power rankings have the Bears up from 12th to 11th. At Fox Sports, Brian Billick moved the Bears up from tenth to ninth. And Elliot Harrison at NFL.com also lifted Chicago from tenth to ninth. All three sites indicated that Jay Cutler and the Bears offense still had a ways to go if they wanted to earn a spot among the NFL's elite. The Bears average ranking among the sites for this week is 9.25.

Cutler and the Bears will have a chance to prove themselves when they head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys on Monday night.
