NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Brian Urlacher became the latest Chicago defender to return an interception for a touchdown and Jay Cutler threw three TD passes to Brandon Marshall as the Bears routed the Tennessee Titans 51-20 on Sunday.

Cornerback Charles Tillman forced four fumbles and Chicago created five turnovers while winning its sixth in a row.

The Bears (7-1) scored a franchise-record 28 points in the first quarter. They took control by forcing three turnovers in the first 13 minutes and turning them into 14 points. Urlacher went 46 yards for his score.

The Titans (3-6) lost their second straight with Chicago fans taking over LP Field, booing any video highlights featuring the rival Green Bay Packers and frequently chanting ``Let's go, Bears.''

Tennessee's lone highlight when Chris Johnson scored on an 80-yard run in the fourth quarter.
