Titans HC Mike Vrabel on what stands out about the Bears:

"Excellent defense. They've got a really good front, fast, active linebackers, secondary is aggressive. They've got two rangy safeties. The corners on third down, this is a tough task here on third down, number one in the league. Obviously, offensively, (David) Montgomery has forced 26 missed tackles. This is a strong runner. This is a runner who can stiff arm, can jump cut, catches the ball out of the backfield. (Allen) Robinson is obviously an excellent number one receiver. They've got a lot of faith in (Nick) Foles throwing the football to him from what I've seen on tape, the type of athlete that he is. (Darnell) Mooney has developed into a guy that they can move the ball down the field with. It's always been a huge challenge to be able to – great returner, (Cordarrelle) Patterson. Probably the best returner in the league, one of the best, excellent gunner. We've watched all that stuff and tried to share with them those keys here this morning."
