Chicago Bears: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#9)

Last week: 10 Beating the Vikings by 1 isn’t that impressive, but they did it despite losing the turnover battle, something that only happens 20.9% of the time.

They aren’t dominating the turnover battle like they were last year, as could be expected, but they have an improved offense thanks to a very...
