Here are the week 16 Bears power rankings from various sites around the web:

ESPN: #8 (Last week: #8)

Analysis, “How many people had Chicago as their preseason pick to win the NFC North? Very few.”

CBS Sports: #4 (Last week: #5)

Analysis, “They showed Monday night that they can bounce back after a tough loss. The defense was rugged against the Vikings. Two more victories and they get a playoff bye.”

Fox Sports: #8 (Last week: #8)

Analysis, “They didn’t exactly get off to a great start against the host Vikings, but the Bears hung in there and earned the convincing victory. But their path to securing a first-round playoff bye will get much harder coming up with the Jets and Packers on their schedule over the final two games.”

Pro Football Talk: #8 (Last week: 11)

Analysis, “In the end, the Bears have worn their desperation well; coach Lovie Smith has saved his job.”

Pro Football Weekly: #8 (Last week: #9)

Analysis, “Sat back Sunday and watched best scenario play out.”

WEEI.com: #8 (Last week: 10)

Analysis, “The NFC North champions now turn their focus on getting the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs. If the Bears win their remaining two games against the Jets and Packers, they will have that opportunity.”
