The first big play came midway through the first quarter when defensive back Sherrick McManis got his hand on a Titans punt, which defensive end Corey Wootton corralled in at the 5-yard line before taking it in for the score. Soon afterward, a big punt return by Devin Hester set up an easy score by Matt Forte.
On the defensive end, Chicago continues to be a potentially special group. Tennessee has gotten only one first down while committing three turnovers, including an interception that Brian Urlacher returned for a touchdown and a fumble recovery by Chris Conte in the Titans' red zone.
The Bears' offense continues to be shaky, though, as evidenced by the lack of total yardage and a safety on a J'Marcus Webb penalty in the Titans' end zone, accounting for the safety. Chicago's two scores came as the result of other big plays – the punt return by Hester and the fumble recovery by Conte.
It may not matter, though:
