3 Tennessee Titans who shined against the Chicago Bears

Tennessee Titans football is back and there were some real positives to take away from their game against the Chicago Bears.

Now full disclosure, I am not even considering Will Levis or Malik Willis on this list.

After good performances from both, the backup quarterback discussion deserves its own full article, so that will come later.

However, everyone else was fair game and the list ended up having a rookie, a forgotten man, and a player who could surge to make this roster.

Standouts for the Tennessee Titans vs the Chicago Bears

I'm bending the rules here, but I have to lump Andre Dillard and Peter Skoronski together to start this list.

The starting offensive line played the opening drive of the game and the left side did a good job in pass protection, but what really stood out was how the duo handled the 3rd and 1 play. Tim Kelly called a handoff to Tyjae Spears who ran the ball behind Dillard and Skoronski for an easy five yards.

It wasn't much, but they were playing against the majority of the Chicago Bears starters and they handled their assignments well.

For most of the game, the backup linebackers all took turns making better plays than the potential starters, but at the end of the day Chance Campbell was the guy that stood out the most.

As a rookie, Campbell was a guy that seemed like a lock to make an impact on special teams and potentially work his way into the rotation at linebacker by the end of the year. However, after an injury knocked him out for the 2022 season, he turned into the forgotten man on the Tennessee Titans defense.

In this game, he flashed several times including making a few plays at or behind the line of scrimmage and a nice pass coverage rep where he was in sticky coverage before breaking up a pass.

Like linebacker, a handful of defensive backs stood out. Tre Avery had an interception that shifted the momentum toward the Tennessee Titans when everything was going wrong, and Armani Marsh did some good things as well. However, Eric Garror has to be the guy who gets the shoutout here.

His 4 solo tackles don't really explain his impact on the game because two of those were tackles that prevented a huge gain and the other two tackles were TFLs.

I'm not sure what his odds are to make the roster, but the Tennessee Titans are thin at safety and he showed all the makings of a good special teamer with upside as a dime linebacker/safety hybrid.
