The Bears finished sixth in Rick Gosselin's special team's rankings.
The veteran Dallas Morning News sportswriter ranks every NFL team's special teams units based on 22 categories.
According to his rankings, the Browns had far and away the league's best special teams, thanks largely to returner Josh Cribbs, who not only scored three touchdowns on kick returns but also had nine special teams tackles. The Browns, who finished 5-11, had 41 fewer points than second-place Tampa Bay. The Bills, Cowboys and Jets were next, followed by the Bears.
The Carolina Panthers had the worst special teams in the league, according to Gosselin's rankings, while the Packers were 31st. The Super Bowl champion Saints were 29th, ironically enough, while the Colts were 28th.
