1. Chicago Bears
The Bears finally get out of the cellar and get some nice points on the board with this first place finish. Who knows? Maybe this will be a momentum builder for Chicago as the power rankings continue through the summer.
Jordan Howard is a legit lead back and maybe the best running back from a talent standpoint in the entire division. He posted 1313 rushing yards his rookie season and followed that up with 1122 last year. However, his yards per attempt took a huge dip, going from 5.2 to 4.1. Part of that was due to lingering injuries even though he played in all 16 games.
Tarik Cohen is another back on this roster who deserves to be mentioned. He isn’t necessarily a pure rusher, but is a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield. Between himself and Howard, they create a dangerous 1-2 punch the Bears can rely on next season.
