3. The Bears will likely be without Jay Cutler. What can Matt Barkley and the Bears offense expect to see from the Titans defense? Who is the one player the Bears need to game plan around?
As mentioned above, the Titans defense is not good at all. Dick LeBeau has struggled to get a lot from his secondary and linebackers in pass coverage. Matt Barkley can expect plenty of blitzes. LeBeau likes to blitz, and while it hasn’t worked all that well this year, the Titans have been getting pressure relatively consistently. Central to those struggles is the guy that every single team picks on successfully, Perrish Cox.
He’s been arguably the worst corner in the league this year. The Bears will surely plan on attacking him throughout this game, and for good reason. I’m not entirely sure who’s going to match up with him on the outside, but if it’s Cameron Meredith or Eddie Royal, they’ll have plenty of opportunities to do damage.
