Bears destroy Titans in every way imaginable

The Bears improved to 7-1 with a complete and thorough demolition of the Titans, finishing with a 51-20 margin.

It was 28-2 in the first quarter, and it didn’t get any more interesting the rest of the day. The Bears forced five turnovers, and scored on an interception return and a blocked punt.

And an offense that looked like it was going to sleepwalk through caught up in the second half, with Jay Cutler (19-of-26 for 229 yards) and Brandon Marshall (nine catches for 122 yards and three touchdowns) playing pitch and catch.

The Titans are now 3-6, and officially floundering without Jake Locker. Until he returns, they’re just treading water, Matt Hasselbeck’s good enough to be good enough, but until they take a step forward offensively, they’re not going anywhere.

  1. “Until he returns, they’re just treading water,”

    They’re not going to be any better with Locker. He’s no good and likely would have fared even worse against the Bears defense.

  2. In all my years watching NFL football, I’ve never seen a worse home crowd. Even when the game was in contention early, the Bears fans were much louder. And there were more of them too, about 60/40 split in the Bears favor at least.

  3. This is definitely a team in transition. They lost Jeff Fisher and their QB. I though Hasselbeck would do better but it’s prolly the whole team that is floundering.

  4. The 7-1 Texans will be traveling to Chicago to face the 7-1 Bears, in a nationally televised game one week from tonight.

    You couldn’t plan for higher viewership ratings if you tried.

  5. Much better execution today than last week against the Panthers. I think it’s safe to say that the Bears D was the highlight of the game. Will be a great game next week against another 7-1 team. Go Bears

  6. You got to beat who is on your schedule. Bears have done that. Obviously, gets a lot tougher from here on. However, in nearly 40+ years of football watching, Tillman’s ability to force fumbles is amazing!! And a one legged Urlacher running (like I do) for a TD was special.

  7. Its Chicago’s turn this season. HEY Packers fans… its gotta be uncomfortable looking up at CHICAGO ALL SEASON like this..try to relax an watch the show

  8. This game would have been a lot closer if the Titans were using their starting QB. Look what happened when Chicago used a backup, they GOT TEBOWED.

  9. CHICAGO BEARS ARE THE FIRST TEAM IN HISTORY TO score on a touchdown pass..touchdown run..pick six..and Blocked kick for a touchdown IN THE SAME QUARTER

  10. great the bears won but what we really want to know is how was Cutler’s body language today?did he smile and was he polite to reporters because that is what is really important not how he played or if the bears won.

  11. “All around best team in the nfl so far” are you just high or that stupid?? Very easy schedule the first half and they made a fool of themselves against very weak teams. Enjoy the emotional high now bears fans because the real test begins. And your track record of getting the job done under pressure is kinda sad. And by sad I mean pathetic.

    Who in the NFC has had a tough record to this point? Entering this week, every NFC division leader had beaten exactly one team with a winning record. The Bears beat the Colts, the Falcons beat the Broncos, the Giants beat the Niners, and the Niners beat the Packers. Other than that, they’ve all beaten weaker teams. We have just as much right to say we’re the best right now as anybody else.

    “The Bears beat up on another team with a losing record. Big deal. They start facing the real part of their schedule next week.”

    You’re supposed to beat up on the weaker teams you face, and at least split the tough games…I can picture the Bears losing 3 more games…@SF, @MN, and perhaps GB at home if they don’t reverse recent history…AZ and Seattle are not elite, and the Bears should be able to beat them, while playing at home on a Sunday should give the Bears the edge over Houston.

  14. The Bear fans to over Nashville.Never had so much fun at a Bear game! We probably had 40,000 people in the stands! What a defense!

  15. @filthymcnasty
    The Bears are beating the teams on there schedule..one game at a time.
    UNLIKE Greenbay who loss to the Colts..49ers.. and refs or no refs they LOSSED to Seattle. ITS CHICAGO’s TURN THIS SEASON.

  16. Texans, SF and GB. The Bears had better win 2 of these 3 or all the steam of a 7-1 start won’t mean much. You’ve got to be able to win against the good guys as well as beat up the cellar dwellers.

    We’ll seeWhile I will concede the tougher schedule from here on out, here’s a thought…At 7-1, the Bears more than capable of beating any team remaining on their schedule, even Houston and SF…I don’t see them winning out, but 6-2 or 5-3 seems realistic…And finishing 13-3 or 12-4 should win the NFC North.

  18. It’s funny the Bears get criticized for destroying lesser teams. They’re doing exactly what they’re supposed to do versus inferior opponents. Take a look at the comparison to the ’85 Bears team. More similar then you think!

  19. Can’t wait for the Bears to lose to the 49ers, Texans, and Packers! So they can get down to the position their always in, in the NFC North, number 2!
