Power Ranking Roundup: Foles has Bears climbing

Chicago

Nick Foles is officially QB1, and no one knows what that means yet. But that's not stopping the Bears from climbing the rankings, so who cares?! Here's what they're saying: 

NBC Sports Chicago – #13 It's still unclear how good the Bears really are, but Nick Foles should give Matt Nagy's offense more consistency.

ESPN – #14 Many assumed -- incorrectly -- that Bears coach Matt Nagy would provide Trubisky with a longer-than-expected leash after Trubisky outplayed veteran Nick Foles in training camp. Nope. Nagy benched Trubisky after just 10-plus inconsistent quarters. The job now belongs to Foles, who tossed three touchdown passes and led Chicago to a comeback victory over Atlanta in relief of Trubisky last Sunday.

NFL.com – #16 You do this job long enough, you eventually see it all. On Monday, Matt Nagy announced that Nick Foles had overtaken Mitchell Trubisky as the starting quarterback of the Bears. These types of things happen all the time in the NFL ... but usually it's not a 3-0 team making the QB change.

Yahoo Sports – #15 The Bears have two crazy comeback wins and beat a bad Giants team 17-13 when they got a stop at their own 10-yard line as time expired. The Bears have replaced quarterback Mitchell Trubisky — which Matt Nagy seemed beyond ready to do, considering he yanked Trubisky after one pick on Sunday — and will go with Nick Foles in Week 4 and probably beyond. 

 

CBS Sports – #10 They are 3-0 and have a quarterback controversy. You almost never see that. Nick Foles was great in rallying them against Atlanta, but now he's the starter.

Bleacher Report – #14 There is no doubt the Chicago Bears are the most surprising 3-0 team in the NFL.

USA Today – #18 Yet another reminder that the NFL needs to revisit its rule for awarding QB wins and losses given Mitchell Trubisky is credited with 3-0 record.

Sporting News – #12 The Bears are somehow undefeated after two big fourth-quarter comebacks (Lions, Falcons) led by two different quarterbacks, which sandwiched an ugly slugfest escape. Nick Foles is a good bet to stay the QB going forward, but they will need a lot more consistency from their running game and defense to build on their shockingly hot start, albeit against lesser opponents.
