Green Bay Packers
Lovie Smith’s message to the team this week was to “have a fast start”. They clearly got the memo.
In 2000, the Tennessee Titans pulled off the famous “Music City Miracle”. In 2012, the Bears stormed into Nashville and put on a performance that from this day forth should be known as the “Music City Massacre” (I’m trademarking this).
If they hadn’t done so already, the Bear’s firmly placed their names amongst the NFC’s elite with their 51-20 shellacking of the Titans.
At 7-1 (I told you!), the Bears hold a 1.5 game lead in the division over the surging Green Bay Packers and are tied for 2nd in the NFL in winning percentage with their week 10 opponents, the Houston Texans.
The way the Bears dominated the Titans on Sunday was almost comical. They forced so many turnovers that defensive end Corey Wootton was visually disappointed when a pass he tipped fell harmlessly to the ground instead of being picked off. It felt like the players on defense were expecting to come away with the

The Chicago Bears breezed through the first half of their schedule. Now, it's time to buckle down.
The Bears are in good shape at the moment leading the NFC North at 7-1, but the schedule is about to take a tougher turn.
Houston visits Sunday night in a matchup of two of the league's best teams, and then comes a game at San Francisco next week.
To that, coach Lovie Smith...
Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears were up 7-0 against the Tennessee Titans backed up in their own end zone. Cutler dropped back into the end zone where he threw an amazing pass that happened to be tipped by a Titan defensive back. The defensive back tipped it right to Matt Forte, the Chicago Bear running back, who than made the first town. Everything seemed to be all right for the...
The Tennessee Titans now have plenty of motivation to play better. Owner Bud Adams has made sure of that.
The owner plans to evaluate everyone from the front office to the coaches to the players over the final seven games after the Titans lost 51-20 to Chicago, the most points allowed since a 59-0 loss to New England in 2009.
"In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise, I am...
Titans running back Chris Johnson went wild Sunday against the Chicago. He finished the day with 141 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries.Fantasy Spin:Johnson did lose a couple of fumbles but getting to 141 yards against the Bears' stout run defense is still an impressive feat, even if 80 of said yards came on one play in the fourth quarter.
At first, Bears FS Chris Conte thought it was one of his teammates playing a joke on him when he received a notice that he was being fined $21,000 for a blow to the head of a defenseless receiver. Conte was called for a penalty last week after hitting Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell in the head.
But Conte didnt look like he was attempting to make a knockout shot...
The Tennessee Titans on Saturday reversed a move made earlier in the week.
The Titans promoted safety Tracy Wilson back from the practice squad to the 53-man roster and waived guard Kyle DeVan.
On Tuesday, the Titans agreed to terms with DeVan, who leaves without ever playing a regular-season game in Tennessee, and waived Wilson to make room on the roster. The Titans needed help...

The Bears (7-1) scored a franchise-record 28 points in the...
The Chicago Bears met the NFLs version of the Bad News Bears on Sunday at LP Field, and the result left Bud Adams anything but amused.

In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise, I am at a loss to...
The schedule gets tougher for the Bears after this weekend, so Jay Cutler and Chicago's offense will need to show improvement on the road in Tennessee if they are to build some momentum.
The Chicago Bears are looking to extend their five game winning streak and get the offense on track when they travel to the Music City to face the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The 6-1 Bears are coming off a come-from-behind 23-22 victory over Carolina, but the offense sputtered. The Titans, 3-5, lost a tough overtime game to Indianapolis 19-13. Jay [...]
