The Tennessee defense was repeatedly placed in poor situations and crumbled as the second half wore on, allowing 14 points in the fourth quarter in the rout.
Chicago piled up over 350 yards of offense and were able to consistently take advantage of great field position and convert once they reached the red zone.
The Titans were able to hit Cutler throughout the game but were often gashed when Chicago elected to run the football, as Matt Forte and Armando Allen combined for nearly 150 yards on the ground.
Third quarter: The Bears have been able to move the ball effectively and have scored 13 points in the second half to continue to build its lead.
The Titans defense continues to pressure Cutler but is beginning to wear down after spending much of the half on the field.
Halftime: Despite allowing 31 points in the first half, it's difficult to lay all of the blame at the feet of the defense.
The unit has repeatedly been forced into short fields and 14 of the points came on a blocked punt and an interception that were returned for touchdowns.
Chicago has just 136 yards of offense in the first half, but have managed to build a 26-point halftime lead.
First quarter: Although Chicago managed to put points on the board in the first quarter, that is through no fault of a very impressive
The Titans have shown some aggressiveness, sending more than four men a number of times, and have collapsed the pocket consistently in the early going, leading to a foul in the end zone and a safety to give the offense the ball back.
Cutler is having little time to scan the field and when he does, is finding little open down field.
Titans defense has been put in poor positions time after time and have not had a fair chance to keep the team in the game.
Despite some struggles with consistency throughout the season, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler pilots an offense that ranks eighth in the league in scoring, averaging 26.4 points per game.
The Titans' defensive struggles this season have been well-documented, as the team has allowed over 20 points in seven of its first eight games and sits in last in the NFL in scoring defense, surrendering over 32 points a contest.
However, the unit is coming off its strongest performance of the year last week, where they held the Colts' offense to 13 points in regulation and 19 points overall in the loss.
The Titans' pass rush, which has shown some consistency in recent weeks, will need to get to Jay Cutler throughout the game and not give him time to scan the field and beat the Titans downfield.
