The Tennessee Titans faced the Chicago Bears yesterday at a fully packed arena held at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. It was a close fight as the Titans fight head to head with the Bears at every quarter.

They were tied during the first quarter but the titans managed to score well in the second quarter thus leading after the first half.

The same thing happened in the third quarter, The Titans scored an additional three points while the Bears had none. The Bears tried to regain their balance in the last quarter scoring 14 to three but they lacked seven points to win the game.

The match ended in 27 to 21 in favor of the Titans. According to UPI, Titans safety Kevin Byard spotted a pass heading toward the end zone and knew he had to make a play. He said "I'm not going to lie: When I made the hit, I was just hoping that I wasn't going to hear the crowd explode."

He added, "Once I didn't hear the crowd, I just got up in jubilation." This was an important win for the Titans. They are now on a 6-6 standing and is back to the .500.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said "It's better than relief. It's a win on the road, which we need. These are have-to-win games. We have to win these games to stay in the mix, regardless of what anybody else is doing."

He continued, "I don't care how it unfolded, how it ended. We won the game."

However, not all is well for the Titans players as Tennessean reported that the team has cut ties with cornerback Perrish Cox.

Instead of benching the veteran, the team opted to release Cox from his contract with four regular-season games remaining in his second season of a three-year deal.

Because of this turn of events, the team promoted Kalan Reed from the practice squad to fill in Cox position.
