Chicago Bears schedule gets tougher after Titans

David Banks

The Bears face a brutal back-to-back combo of the Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers to start off November, and will have a chance to prove whether they're the best team in the league.

The Chicago Bears face the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, and are easy favorites to win the game and go to 7-1 on the season. However, the Bears' schedule will stiffen up significantly in the next few weeks, as they will host the 6-1 Houston Texans at night on Nov. 11 and then travel to the 6-2 San Francisco 49ers for a huge Monday night showdown on Nov. 19. If they can get through that stretch with two wins, it will be hard to argue that the Bears aren't the best team in the NFL.

The Bears' first seven opponents have a combined W-L record of 20-31, so one could argue that they've built their impressive record on the backs of inferior competition. Watching them play, however, generally does not leave you with that conclusion, as their defense has dominated almost every opponent, and have yet to give up more than 23 points in a game this year. That streak will be tested by Houston next week.
