Bears vs. Titans score: Chicago leads 31-5 at halftime

The Chicago Bears are leading 31-5 over the Tennessee Titans going into halftime after an eventful first quarter gave way to a much quieter second quarter on Sunday afternoon.

Four touchdowns highlighted a huge first quarter for Chicago, but the two teams simply traded field goals in the second quarter, with Tennessee's coming at the end of the half following a pair of near-interceptions by Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.

The Titans have actually accumulated more total yards than the Bears so far on Sunday, 145-136, but turnovers and big special teams plays have ultimately dictated the game. The list of big plays that the Bears have made is almost startling: three fumble recoveries, a 44-yard punt return, an interception touchdown, a blocked-punt touchdown.

The final three plays listed above all directly led to scores, allowing the Bears to stick 21 points on the scoreboard while covering just 8 yards on offense. That has Tennessee trying to play catch-up, something that's going to be particularly difficult against this Bears defense.
