Week 10 NFL Power Rankings: CBS Sports Moves Lions Up Two Spots

The Detroit Lions are coming off a bye week following a big win, and are looking ahead to a divisional matchup against the Chicago Bears. They're sitting at 6-2 and within striking distance of the division-leading Packers and, of course, a wildcard playoff berth. For the Lions, they've mostly held or moved up slightly in the power rankings since breaking their two-game skid with the win over the Broncos.

CBS Sports does them one better, bumping them up two spots:

6. Their bye should have helped them work on two things: Running it better and stopping the run. They face a big division game this week with the Bears.    

Last week, the Lions were held at the No. 8 spot, and now following the bye week, they find themselves going up two spots. Other teams fell out of those spots, so that's probably why, but it's clear the Lions are highly thought-of and most folks feel like they can beat the Bears on Sunday.
