The Bears visit L.P. Field today for a noon kickoff. Anytime a team from the NFC comes to Nashville it means the game is going to be broadcast on FOX. It threw me off for a minute this morning when setting my DVR because the game wasn't on CBS. Here is the coverage map for today's games. As you can see from that link Brian Billick is the color commentator for the broadcast today. There are few people I hate more in the NFL than Billick.
The Bears are only a 3 1/2 point favorite in this game. Apparently Vegas is not a big believer in Jay Cutler and the Bears. I just have a hard time seeing how the Titans keep this one very close. There is no doubt that the Chicago offense is going to score some points, and I am not sure the Titans offense can match them against this Bears' defense.
Tennessee is going to need someone to step up and make some plays. The Bears send CB Charles Tillman to lock up the opposing team's #1 receiver. You would assume that means he will spend the day matched up with Kenny Britt. That means that Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and Jared Cook are all going to need to step up today for this game to be close.
The game thread will open at 11 central. I am going to go ahead and set the second half thread to open at 1:30.
