It started ugly, with a fumble by Kenny Britt on the first play. It got a little bit better, as the Bears became the first team not to score against the Titans on their first and second possessions. Then, the Titans had the ball again. Brett Kern had his punt blocked and returned for a score. The Titans got a safety the next possession, but were forced to punt, a punt Devin Hester returned inside the 10. 14-2. Matt Hasselbeck was intercepted by Brian Urlacher, who went to the end zone. 21-2. Chris Johnson fumbled the first play the next drive. Three plays later, 28-2. Then, the first quarter ended. The 28 first quarter points was the most the Titans had ever allowed at home, though of course they've only been playing games since 1960. It would be 31-5 at half and 37-12 at the end of the third quarter before Jay Cutler tacked on two touchdown passes to Brandon Marshall and Chris Johnson actually made a safety miss on an 80-yard touchdown to produce the final score of 51-20. There were probably a couple positives from this game (CJ did better than I expected, even before his late run), but frankly right now I don't really care. The Titans were a bit unfortunate to get down quite as much as they did quite as quickly, but on the whole this looked like a very good team (Chicago) taking a very bad team (Tennessee) to the woodshed and beating them like a red-headed stepchild. Sanity later.
