Bears vs. Titans 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Mike Ehrmann

Chicago tries to extend its hot start in Nashville.

The 6-1 Chicago Bears will attempt to extend their lead in the NFC North Division Sunday when they travel to Nashville to face the 3-5 Tennessee Titans. Kickoff is set for noon CT, with television coverage on Fox.

It is no surprise that the Bears offense has been predicated on the running game. Chicago is ninth in the league in scoring offense, averaging over 26 points per game, despite ranking 30th in passing yards and 26th in total yardage. What has been surprising is the effectiveness of the running game in the absence of star halfback Matt Forte, who missed time earlier this season with an ankle injury. Bears tight end Matt Spaeth was limited in practice Wednesday with an ankle injury, but is expected to play.

The Titans have had an up-and-down season, losing four of their first five before recording back-to-back wins over Pittsburgh and Buffalo. Tennessee's resurgance coincided with the return of quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who is averaging 244 yards passing in the three games since taking over for injured starter Jake Locker. Nevertheless, the Titans offense has struggled to find its footing, averaging just 20 points per game and ranked in the bottom half of the league in every relevant offensive statistic.
