CHICAGO -- The Titans came to Soldier Field and delivered the same message to the Bears that they've given everyone else they've crossed paths with this season: Collectively, we're better than you, we won't flinch when things don't look good, we'll find a way and ensure the loss column zero stays in place.

Things got a bit tougher than they would have liked after they went ahead by two touchdowns, but the Titans ultimately got the defensive stand and the clock-killing first down they needed.

The Bears absolutely took away the Titans run game -- Tennessee had 21 net yards rushing -- yet the guests were never in panic mode and showed an offensive versatility many would have said they were incapable of.

The Titans have now beaten three of their four NFC North opponents, with only Detroit on Thanksgiving left to go.
