*2007 Stats

I have little doubt that the Titans will be the better team when these two take the field in November, but traveling to Chicago to take on the Bears in November is never easy. Looking at the stats above, the Bears defense actually struggled last season. They did suffer some injuries, but they do not strike fear into teams like they did a couple of years ago.

The Titans look to establish the run in every game they play, but it will be especially important on what will probably be a cold, windy day in Chicago. They should be able to have some success on the ground against this team. Vince Young will probably just be asked to take care of the ball in this one.

Who knows what the Bears offense will be? They have announced that Kyle Orton is their starting quarterback. They are planning on using Devin Hester as a wide receiver and it looks like rookie running back Matt Forte will be there feature back. The only fire power this team will have will come in the returns of Hester.

If you have been keeping up with the Breaking Down the Schedule series, you are aware that I have the Titans entering this game at 7-1. I don't see any reason they won't improve to 8-1 after this game.

Site note: Beginning tomorrow August West will be bringing you the morning linkage.
