Titans Hang On for 27-21 Win Over the Bears in Chicago

Tennesee Titans v Chicago Bears

Marcus Mariota threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns, and the Titans hung on to beat the depleted Bears 27-21 on Sunday.

The Titans (6-6) gave their playoff hopes a boost, though they watched as Chicago (2-9) cut a 20-point lead to six in the fourth quarter.

Matt Barkley, starting for the injured Jay Cutler, led the late surge. The Bears had a first down at the Tennessee 7 in the final minute when Josh Bellamy dropped a pass in the end zone on first down. Barkley’s next three attempts fell incomplete, preserving the win for Tennessee.

The Titans moved one game out of first place in the AFC South.

Mariota, putting together one of the best seasons ever by a Titans quarterback, came through with another solid performance. The second-year pro completed 15 of 23 passes.

    This was one of those wins that the Titans needed – next season these will have to be solid wins, not narrow victories, if they are going to be a playoff team.
