Mike Glennon capped an opening 96-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Dion Sims, helping his case to be Chicago's starting quarterback as the Bears beat the Tennessee Titans 19-7 Sunday in Nashville in their third preseason game.
Glennon was an efficient 11-for-18 for 134 yards passing despite losing starting wide receiver Cameron Meredith late in the first quarter. Meredith was carted off because of an injured left knee.
Mitchell Trubisky, the second overall pick out of North Carolina, opened the third quarter with the Bears' starters. But Trubisky threw two incompletions as the Bears went three-and-out. Trubisky also fumbled a snap on his next series, though he rebounded with a 45-yard TD pass to Tanner Gentry for a 19-7 lead in the fourth quarter.
Cincinnati 23, Washington 17: Andy Dalton and the Bengals' other starters shrugged off a rough start to the preseason to finish strong. Dalton was 8-for-13 for 70 yards and Cincinnati's first-team offense and defense looked sharp in a win over the host Redskins. A.J. Green had four catches for 43 yards, Jeremy Hill ran for 15 yards and the Bengals regulars' first preseason touchdown before his day was cut short with an ankle injury.
