Chicago Bears vs Tennessee Titans: Preview, Odds and Line
By Ravi Konjeti
Preview of the Week 9 matchup between the Titans and Bears.
The Tennessee Titans are coming off of an embarrassing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and this week they will take on the Chicago Bears who are also attempting to rebound from a loss.
For the Titans, this will be another noon kickoff at Nissan Stadium in Nashville and will be aired on Fox.
The Bears forced overtime against the New Orleans Saints last week after a rallying second-half performance by quarterback Nick Foles but lost after they couldn’t do anything in overtime.
Tennessee offense stalled last week, but there is likely no reason to be concerned at all about this when you look at the tape and see a dominant performance once they actually got the ball vs Pittsburgh and how close they were to some big plays against the Bengals.
Despite the box score not looking great for the offense, the real concern has been on the defensive side of the ball as the Titans have one of the worst defenses in the league.
The Bears have the opposite problem. The Bears defense has found their groove and been able to find strong performances across the board as they have the sixth-ranked defense according to DVOA. Meanwhile, the offense has struggled to move the ball and find any consistency.
The Titans and Bears will look to get back into the top tier of their respective conferences. Let’s take a look at the matchup for this week.
