The Chicago Bears will clash with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with the Bears continuing to defy critics and making a stake to the claim they are one of the best teams in the NFL this year. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the link below.
The Bears enter this game with a 6-1 record, which puts them right up there with the best in the NFL so far this year. That has surprised most pundits, but their critics have highlighted the point that they have not come up against the toughest opposition in the first half of the season. Critics have highlighted that the only time they have come up against another top NFL team they were beaten, 23-10 against the Green Bay Packers.
They have won everything else though, although not always convincingly. Last week they only managed to beat the Carolina Panthers 23-22 when they put over a 41 yard field goal in the final seconds of the game.
So the Bears will look to continue to defy their critics and post another win. However, the Tennessee Titans may not exactly be the perfect side to come up against ti silence those critics. The Titans are having a lackluster season, coming into this game with a 3-5 record and lying third in the AFC South, only higher than the even worse Jacksonville Jaguars who are 1-6.
So most would be expecting the Bears to win this game and continue to stretch their lead in the NFC North from Minnesota and the Green Bay Packers.
This match up is more interesting as it will show one of the NFL's best runners in Chris Johnson square off against the league's best run defense. Johnson has averaged an impressive 5.6 yards per rush over his past five games an if he can continue that form today he will give the Titans a fighting chance at turning over the Bears.
