So last weekend the wife and I made the trek out to Los Angeles so we could catch the Khalil Mack @ Aaron Donald game… which is really the only way to describe it, because the Bears and the Rams are grim reminders that NFL success if fickle.

Last season the Bears and Rams were considered two of the ascending franchises in the league. A couple of star laden defenses, and young, high draft pick quarterbacks, paired with a pair of “quarterback whisperer” coaches.

2019 sees these squads playing more difficult, first place schedules and each has responded with an improvement arc that has flatlined.


If pressed, and I had to project a few teams that have tasted some 2019 success will seem poised to plummet in the standings next season, I’d likely point to the 49ers, Bills, and Texans. But only time will tell.

As for who is performing well this season, lets take a look at the latest power rankings as we head into week 12 action.
