Below you will find a Week 11 roundup for the Bears in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 20

Their 149 total yards Monday night were the fourth fewest for any team in a game this season. Their 10 total first downs were tied for second fewest. The Bears now rank 30th in overall offense, ahead of only the Broncos and the Jets. They have lost four in a row and travel to Green Bay after the bye.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 19

The offense is so limited - no matter who calls the plays. They can't move the ball. Nick Foles isn't the answer and now he's hurt.

USA Today -- Rank: 20

Unfortunate to see QB Nick Foles go down Monday night ... while pondering ways a punchless offense might have actually just gotten irretrievably worse.

ESPN -- Rank: 16

What would they take back: Signing Robert Quinn

The Bears spent lavishly on the veteran defensive end to the tune of $30 million guaranteed. Quinn had one sack in eight games prior to Monday night. To make room for Quinn, the Bears released former first round-pick Leonard Floyd in the offseason. Floyd, who now plays for the Rams, recorded three sacks versus the Seahawks in Week 10, giving him seven sacks in nine games for Los Angeles. Talk about your all-time backfires. -- Jeff Dickerson -- Rank: 23

Nick Foles looked dejected and hopeless as he was carted off the field late in Monday night's loss to the Vikings. It was a sad image that neatly summed up the entire Bears experience after a fourth consecutive loss, this time a 19-13 setback against Minnesota. This latest defeat was especially frustrating, as Chicago got an especially strong performance out of its defense and more special teams mastery from Cordarrelle Patterson, but still couldn't get a win because the offense is completely overmatched. The Bears managed just six points and 149 yards of total offense in Bill Lazor's debut as play-caller. As for Foles, Matt Nagy said after the game that the quarterback suffered a leg or hip injury. Turning this offense over to Tyler Bray is the stuff of nightmares.
