Titans’ Pass Offense vs. Bears’ Pass Defense
Tennessee is ranked 21st in passing, but Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is tied for fourth in the league with 24 touchdown passes, and has thrown only eight interceptions. In their last two games (which were loses), the Bears have surrendered 539 passing yards and four touchdowns. The Titans duo of wide receiver Rishard Matthews and tight end Delanie Walker have a combined total of 11 receiving touchdowns, almost matching the total of touchdown passes Chicago has allowed this year. Covering Walker will be tough with one of the Bears’ top linebackers, Jerrell Freeman, out due to a suspension. In addition, rookie outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, the Bears’ most consistent pass rusher in recent weeks, is out with a concussion.
