The Chicago Bears have suffered some critical injuries in recent weeks and they've lost three straight games, falling out of the current NFC playoff picture in the process. In Pro Football Talk's Week 15 power rankings, the Bears check in at No. 18:
18. Bears (No. 17; 7-6): When said that is a good running back, Urlacher should have added that is a [bad] quarterback.
Sunday's loss to Denver in overtime was heartbreaking for the team, but all is not lost. At 7-6, they need help to reach the playoffs, but they are only a game behind the two teams currently holding the Wildcard spots.
