Week 3 of the NFL season has ended, and it is now time to create the NFL Power Rankings for the third week of the season.

With each passing week, we are better able to gauge who are the teams that are performing well. There are still a few surprise teams that are doing very well to start the 2015 and there are a few playoff teams from last year that seasons look to be over already.

With three weeks of football in the books, let’s take a look at this week’s NFL Power Rankings, starting with the Chicago Bears once again in the dreaded 32nd spot.

32.) Chicago Bears (0-3)

The 2015 NFL season has been an absolute disaster for the Chicago Bears. Without Jay Cutler in Week 3 against the Seahawks, the Bears were forced to start Jimmy Clausen, and the results weren’t good. In their Week 3 loss, the Bears were shutout by the Seahawks, and they only totaled 63 passing yards.

Matt Forte did all that he could without Cutler, but against the Seahawks’ rush defense, Forte was only able to total 74 rushing yards.

31.) New Orleans Saints (0-3)

The New Orleans Saints headed into Week 3 without their starting quarterback Drew Brees, but they were able to give the Carolina Panthers a run for their money. In the 27-22 loss, the Saints played arguably their best game of the season with Luke McCown under center.

In the loss, McCown totaled 310 passing yards on 31-for-38 passing with one interception. The performance by McCown was a shockingly good one against a good Panthers defense.
