Stephen Nover's NFL Preseason Saturday Big Ticket
(NFL) Chicago vs. Tennessee, 08/28/2021 7:00 PM, Score: 27 - 24
Point Spread: -3.00 | -110.00 Chicago (Away)
Result: Push
The Titans are going to be sitting out their top starters. The Bears won't play Andy Dalton.

So it comes down to a battle of reserve QB's and the Bears should hold a winning hand with exciting rookie Justin Fields and veteran Nick Foles against journeyman Matt Barkley and Logan Woodside.

The Bears' offensive line is showing signs of jelling. It was a big question mark entering the season. Bears coach Matt Nagy is likely to play his starting offensive line for at least one half. The Titans' defensive line, thin to begin the season, already is dealing with numerous injuries. So I expect the Bears to control the line of scrimmage.

The Titans are dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak that has affected nine players and several coaches, including head coach Mike Vrabel, who won't be at the game since he tested positive this past Sunday. Starting QB Ryan Tannehill also is dealing with COVID.

Chicago should be the more motivated team having been embarrassed by the Bills, 41-15, last week.
