NFL Lines – Bears vs Titans Week 9 Predictions
2012-11-16

The Bears beat the Panthers with a last second field goal, but they were controlled by Carolina most of the time and didn’t look good on offense.

“We were down,” Tim Jennings, who had a pick six said. “We knew we had to score on defense. Our captains rallied up the troops. We knew that if we got our hands on the ball we had to score. That’s been our mentality all season. I was able to be in the right position and make a play”.

The Bears defense continues to be the best unit of this football team; they sacked Cam Newton six times last week and forced three turnovers.

The Titans, on the other hand, dropped a division game against the Colts in overtime. “I don’t really understand how we lost the game,” Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said.

Tennessee didn’t commit any turnovers, but were outgained 457-339 in total yards by Indianapolis.

Titans coach Mike Munchak says Matt Hasselbeck will continue as the team’s starting quarterback “until further notice”, especially since Jake Locker hasn’t been clear to play yet.

The lines have the Bears as -3.5 favorites.

The Bears are 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games when playing the Titans. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Chicago’s last 6 games when playing Tennessee.

Detroit seemed on their way to victory leading 20-13 late in the fourth quarter but New York scored a defense touchdown to tie the game, and kicked a game winning field goal on their second possession of overtime. The Lions final five chances with the ball ended with four punts and a defensive score. New York was limited to just 41 yards on the ground on 21 carries while the Lions scampered for 148 yards. The teams combined for five turnovers.
