The Chicago Bears (1-1) received a humiliating loss at the hands of the New York Giants on Monday, 41-13. Jay Cutler and Caleb Hanie combined for 333 passing yards, but the Bears defense was sieve against the run, allowing 218 yards. Da'Rel Scott pulled off a 97-yard touchdown run against the Giants' third-stringers in the fourth quarter.

One position battle to take note of in this game is at wide receiver. The Bears brought in Roy Williams to be a starter, but of late he has failed to provide a sufficient performance for his coaches. He is in danger of losing his starting job to Johnny Knox.

The Tennessee Titans (1-1) lost on a last-second field goal by the St. Louis Rams' Josh Brown, 17-16. But the team survived an earlier scare when Matt Hasselbeck hit his head during the second quarter. It turned out that he bit his tongue. Jake Locker completed just 8-of-18 passes in relief of Hasselbeck, but he may not see much playing time in this game.

Still, the big concern with the Titans is over the absence of running back Chris Johnson. Johnson has been a holdout during training camp since Aug. 9 while he seeks a new contract with the team. He had a meeting with the team on Wednesday, but it appears that there was little progress on a new contract. On the bright side of things, Music City Miracles points out, the team has avoided major injuries so far.
