What a better way to wrap up a Holiday weekend than to cozy up to the TV for the Bears vs Titans. OK, if your heartburn from Thanksgiving dinner wasn’t enough, this game ought to put you over the edge.
The 5-6 Tennessee Titans roll into Soldier Field with things to play for. They are still in the playoff hunt in a weak AFC South, trailing the Houston Texans by a couple of games. They have a young, up-and-coming quarterback and an offense with some budding stars.

The Bears, on the other hand, have little left to play for. It looks like Jay Cutler might be done for the season and as a Chicago Bear. Since Ryan Pace did not draft a developmental quarterback to groom behind Cutler, the Bears are forced to go with journeyman Matt Barkley. Besides Cutler’s absence, Alshon Jeffery is serving a four-game suspension for PED’s. Add to that Zach Miller and Kyle Long’s season-ending injuries and the Bears offense is pretty much a mess.
On the other side of the ball, the Bears are struggling to overcome injuries as well. Promising first-round rookie Leonard Floyd will miss Sunday after a scary concussion last week. Jerrell Freeman, the Bears’ leading tackler joins Alshon Jeffery on the sidelines with a PED violation of his own. The secondary continues to be a reolving door through injuries of their own. Frankly, the Bears are a hot mess right now.
