The Bears have been a very quiet, and surprising, 6-1 this season. Despite a history of blow-ups and up and down play, Chicago has been consistent. They have shown glimpses of their former selves from time to time this season, but ultimately they have shown that they are a team to be afraid of. They have done it on both sides of the ball and are 6-1. This may surprise many as they are not talked about by the national media and have remained very under-the-radar. Their next test comes this week in the form of the 3-5 Tennessee Titans.
Chicago will be traveling to Tennessee’s LP Field for this matchup and are coming off another difficult win. In week 8 they faced the struggling Carolina Panthers at home, and just eked out a victory 23-22. The win came after a huge 4th quarter comeback that saw them score 16 points in the last quarter to get the win. Before that point, their only other 7 points came from a 1st quarter touchdown.
Tennessee enters the game coming off a tough home loss to the Colts 19-13. Tennessee hoped to knock off the Colts to stay afloat in the AFC South. The division is currently dominated by a 6-1 Texans team, but a win could have kept their heads above water. A loss this week would certainly lead to a drowning in the division and Tennessee, being at home, could give the Bears a real run for their money.
