Chicago Bears Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Chicago Bears in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 30

Non-QB MVP: WR DJ Moore

Moore was the centerpiece of the trade that sent the 2023 No. 1 pick to Carolina this offseason and has been the definition of dependable for an offense trying to find its way. He is third on the team in offensive snaps (92.6%), has a team-high 735 receiving yards (15.6 yards per catch) and is tied for the lead with five touchdowns. There have been games where Moore hasn't been targeted nearly enough, but he still manages to produce and give quarterbacks Justin Fields and Tyson Bagent a trusty deep-ball threat. -- Courtney Cronin -- Rank: 28

If Sunday was the last we'll be seeing of Tyson Bagent for a minute, it was a tough way to go out. Any honest Bears fan would say that Bagent had acquitted himself quite well prior to the loss to the Saints, and really, that narrative held up for three quarters against New Orleans, too. That's how quickly things can change. Bagent's three fourth-quarter turnovers -- all committed while the Bears were within one score -- ended any chance of a road comeback. Justin Fields might have a chance to play when Chicago hosts the Panthers on Thursday Night Football. You want to see as much of Fields as possible going forward, with his future possibly hitting a fork in the road this offseason. At 2-7, that should be the whole focus of the backstretch.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 29

There is a chance Justin Fields is back this week, and they need him. They have to use the rest of the season to find out if he's the guy long term.

USA Today -- Rank: 27

We're in the midst of a five-week stretch in which Chicago is scheduled to play three prime-time games. Let's hope QB Justin Fields (thumb) can return Thursday to at least make Da Bears entertaining.

The Athletic -- Rank: 28

Report card: D-plus

Why don't the Bears get credit for having the Nos. 2 and 3 picks, at the moment, in the upcoming draft when Arizona gets an A? Because it feels more like the result of Carolina's panic than a discernible Chicago plan. The Bears have only three picks in the top 100 of the 2024 draft. Tyson Bagent is a fun story, but he's not a plan. He's thrown five interceptions in the last two weeks. Justin Fields might be back this week, and the Bears need him.

FOX -- Rank: 29

I think Tyson Bagent played fairly well during his time as the starter, but the Bears have to hope Justin Fields can resume the role on Thursday in Carolina. The season is lost, but the second half of the campaign is going to say a lot about the game plan for the offseason.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 28

The Tyson Bagent story has been fun, but the Bears need all the time they can get to evaluate Justin Fields. Fields could return Thursday night. The Bears have to figure out what to do at quarterback, especially if they get a top-two pick in the draft from Carolina. If nothing else, they'd benefit if Fields improved his trade value.

PFT -- Rank: 28

A periodic win won't be enough to stave off major changes.
