The Bears finally ended their losing streak, but the Power Rankings weren't that impressed. Turns out, barely beating Jeff Driskel doesn't give you a lot of credit. Here's what they're saying:
NBC Sports Chicago - #21
The four-game losing streak is over, but did Mitch Trubisky's three-touchdown game inspire enough confidence to believe this team can make a run?
NFL.com - #21
Things got more interesting than they should have in the final minutes, but the Bears held on against a Lions team missing Matthew Stafford.
ESPN - #20
Basically, the Bears have to win Sunday night to keep their dim playoff hopes alive. At 4-5, the Bears are 3.5 games behind Green Bay and 2.5 behind Minnesota in the NFC North.
Sporting News - #19
The Bears got what they needed from Mitchell Trubisky against a bad Lions defense to stay in the playoff hunt and help Matt Nagy with his job security. The hard part is keeping that up against better teams.
CBS Sports - #21
So they do have a passing game? Maybe turning off the TVs helped Mitch Trubisky. He was good against the Lions to keep their season alive.
Sports Illustrated - #23
The Bears stepped on the gas to start the second half and their defense held off a backup quarterback on two potential game-winning drives. Mitchell Trubisky was better (16-of-23, 173 yards, 3 TDs) and the Bears can show some fight with a win next week against a reeling Rams team.
USA Today - #21
Mitch Trubisky is fair game, but remember that Chicago's 36 takeaways in 2018 greatly aided him and offense. Team has 12 takeaways so far this year.
The Athletic - #21
Did Mitchell Trubisky resurrect his lost season? It’s probably too soon to say (and he’s got a prime time game next week against the Rams, who for all their issues on offense have a defense that can wreck a quarterback), but for Bears fans, Sunday was a much-needed change, with three touchdowns from Trubisky, on three straight drives in the middle of the game, and a win over the Lions. For at least a few days, maybe Trubisky can turn the TVs back on.
