The Tennessee Titans were humiliated yesterday at home by the Chicago Bears in a 51 – 20 blowout. It was the worst loss in the history of LP Field and the worst loss since the 59-0 loss in New England.
The Bears scored 28 points in the first half. 14 of them came from a pick six and blocked punt picked up for a TD. The other two came on offensive drives that started deep in Titans territory thanks to the fumbles.
Despite the scoreboard showing the Titans losing 31-2 at half, the Titans had out-gained the Bears offense 148 to 136. At the end of the game, the Bears had 358 yards to the Titans 333 yards.
The Titans lost the time of possession battle, 37:01 minutes to their 22:59 minutes.

There were more Bears fans in the stands than there were Titans fans. It may as well have been an away game.
That’s a quick glimpse at the stats from yesterday. There’s plenty more and I’m sure you’ll hear about them, but here’s the ones we’ve got for today. Unfortunately, they don’t paint the prettiest picture.
There’s plenty of jobs on the line, something Bud Adams made clear yesterday. It’ll be interesting to see if that has any effect on the Titans play the rest of the year.
