Power Rankings
They appear to be going to more of a power running style on offense, which they need. But they have to be careful to not get away from their strength of throwing it. The defense has suffered some big hits.
They've helped their offense this spring, especially in the draft (G Laken Tomlinson, RB Ameer Abdullah), but that defense has suffered some hits. Can they get over the loss of a player like Ndamukong Suh.
The loss of Ndamukong Suh will be felt on the defense. He helped cover up flaws. The offense will have to do more in 2015.
They have a huge decision coming on Ndamukong Suh. How do they let him walk?
The defense continues to carry this team, and it needs to again this week against the Packers. Matthew Stafford has to be better.
If they win out, they are the division champs. Win this week, and they are a playoff team.
Their schedule is favorable the next two weeks, which means they should get to 11 victories. But you never know with this team.
The schedule gets favorable the next few weeks. They have to take advantage of it.
They aren't good enough on offense right now. That's hard to believe. But here comes the Bears, a tonic for ailing offenses.
The offense just isn't scoring enough. They face a tough challenge with a second straight road game, this one at New England.
