Power rankings do nothing beyond someone's ego if they had a winning team ranked high, or how dumb they are if they have a team overranked.
NFL.com ranks teams and has the Bears eighth. Certainly it's a fair ranking. But what's interesting is the way the Seattle Seahawks have come charging up both in this poll and in the standings.
A strong running game complementing Russell Wilson has made Seattle nothing like the team the Bears drubbed back in September at Soldier Field. If they Bears hang on in the NFC North, this would be a difficult matchup.
