2022 NFL Power Rankings: Chicago Bears
Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.
Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the Chicago Bears in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.
ESPN -- Rank: 28
Justin Fields had 48 net passing yards against the Packers. Sure, the Bears ran the ball effectively behind David Montgomery's 15 carries for 122 yards, but Chicago's offense must generate some semblance of a passing attack to not make themselves one-dimensional and easy to defend. Through two weeks, the Bears are running just 48.5 plays per game (the second lowest in the NFL), have the highest sack rate (12.5%) and the league's lowest percentage of passing plays (32.04%). Chicago can lean predominantly on the run game with its developmental quarterback, but it can't abandon the passing game entirely the way it did against the Packers.
NFL.com -- Rank: 30
CBS Sports -- Rank: 28
USA Today -- Rank: 29
The Athletic -- Rank: 28
Zero catches for zero yards and zero touchdowns with 0.0 yards per route run.
But you take that as a Bears offense as long as Darnell Mooney is getting his (two catches for four yards on the season).
The Bears rank 32nd in the league in EPA per pass play, which is disappointing in part because it was sort of the expectation heading into the season.
Yahoo! -- Rank: 29
Equanimeous St. Brown, three catches for 57 yards
Dante Pettis, one catch for 51 yards
Byron Pringle, one catch for 22 yards
Darnell Mooney, two catches for 4 yards
That's it. Seven catches for 134 yards over two games. One game was played in a crazy rainstorm, but it's still a troubling stat. Mooney in particular needs to get way more involved.
PFT -- Rank: 28
