"It's rare to watch a game in which the punter is the clear MVP, but Johnny Hekker put on a show against the Bears on Monday night. He's a legitimate weapon."

Bleacher Report Rank: 11

Change: +2

"After getting beaten handily by the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6, the Los Angeles Rams faced another big test Monday night against the 5-1 Chicago Bears-a chance to show that they (like seemingly every team in the NFC West) are a legitimate Super Bowl contender. The Rams passed said test with flying colors."

USA Today, Nate Davis Rank: 16

Last Week: 20

Change: +4

"Seriously, we need to start talking about Johnny Hekker as the greatest punter ever. All five of his punts Monday landing inside the 10. Appreciate his genius ..."

Sports Illustrated, The MMQB Rank: 10

Last Week: 9

Change: -1

Note: The MMQB staff rotates who compiles its Power Rankings each week. This week, it was staff writer Conor Orr's turn.

"When Sean McVay is cooking, there are not many coaches in the league who can match wits."

CBS Sports, Pete Prisco Rank: 10

Last Week: 11

Change: +1

"The defense is impressive. That is the part of the team that is so much better than expected. They dominated the Chicago offense, bouncing back after their bad loss to the 49ers."

Washington Post Rank: 11
