Keep your eye on ...
Chicago's quarterback: With an ankle injury putting Kyle Orton's next start in serious doubt, the Bears might be forced to return to Rex Grossman, who threw for 1,411 yards, four touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight starts last season. Comparatively, Orton has recorded 1,777 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions in as many starts this year.

Cool-hand Collins: Collins has just three touchdowns on the season, but the 35-year-old QB has not thrown an interception since Week 5. On Sunday, he recorded 45 of his 180 passing yards on Tennessee's final drive of regulation, completing 4 of 5 passes to set up Bironas' miss of a 47-yard field goal attempt.

The interception factor: The Titans, led by Cortland Finnegan (four) and Michael Griffin (four), are tied for the lead-league with 13 interceptions. The Bears are right behind them with 12 -- by nine different players. While Collins has just three picks on the season, interceptions have followed Grossman throughout his career.
