Last week: 25 (-2)

Record: 3-6

The Titans have won 3 games by a combined 7 points and lost 6 by a combined 133 points, giving them a league worst points differential of -126. After allowing 317 points all of last year, 8th best in the league, they’ve allowed 308 through 9 games this year, by far the worst. However, last week it wasn’t really their defense’s problem. The Bears jumped out to a 28-2 lead thanks to a punt block touchdown, a pick six, and two short touchdown drives off of a fumble recovery and a long punt return. In fact, the Titans’ defense actually scored before the offense did, forcing a safety. The Bears scored 28 points on 54 yards and while the Titans allowed another 22 after that, the game was out of reach at that point and they likely weren’t giving it 100%, which is understandable.
