The Detroit Lions didn't move around very much in this week's NFL power rankings since they were on a bye. Without a loss, they for sure weren't going to fall, and without a win, they weren't going to drastically jump up or anything like that. They did move up in a couple rankings, though, and now they are a top-10 team across the board. Take a look:
- SB Nation: 9th (up from 11th)
- ESPN: 10th (no change)
- CBS Sports: 9th (up from 10th)
- FOX Sports: 10th (no change)
- Pro Football Talk: 10th (no change)
The Chicago Bears, which are coming off a big win over the Green Bay Packers, saw a nice bump in power rankings this week. They are set to take on the Lions on Sunday, and they are now ranked 15th (SB Nation), ninth (ESPN), 12th (CBS Sports), 12th (FOX Sports) and 13th (Pro Football Talk). The winner of Sunday's game could see a pretty big bump in next week's power rankings with first place in the NFC North on the line.
