The Tennessee Titans welcome the Chicago Bears to Nissan Stadium in Nashville on Sunday. This is the first meeting between the two sides in four years.

The Titans are coming into this contest after suffering a shocking 31-20 loss at the hands of the underdog Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8. The Bears also lost last week, although theirs was a close 26-23 overtime contest against the New Orleans Saints.

The Tennessee Titans are 5-2 and tied for the AFC South lead, while the Chicago Bears are 5-3 and in second place in the NFC North.

This will be only the 13th game played between these franchises, and their first meeting on the Titans' home field in eight years.

The all-time series is tied at 6-6, but the Bears have a 4-2 record when playing away from home.

Tennessee Titans vs Chicago Bears Prediction

After hot starts to their season, both teams have now suffered back-to-back defeats in the last two weeks.

I expect this to be a high-scoring game since both defenses have allowed 20-plus points in their last two games.

The Tennessee Titans, with better quarterback play and a monster running back in Derrick Henry, should take the Chicago Bears in a close, high-scoring game.

Prediction: Titans for the W.
