Battle of the 7-1′s

Posted By Dustin Kelver On Nov 11 2012 @ 2:52 pm In Houston Texans,NFL | No Comments

The Houston Texans and Chicago Bears might just be the two best teams in football this season. Houston knocked off the Bills last week and Chicago dismantled Tennessee. The Bears are making a name for themselves from their rejuvenated defense as they have scored 7 defensive touchdowns this far. This will be Houston’s toughest game thus far and should be a good test for them moving forward.

Chicago’s defense is playing on another planet right now and I think they make the Texans turnover the ball over multiple times. Matt Schaub will struggle in this game because I think the Bears stop the run and take away the play action.

The Bears on offense have somewhat struggled this season but seemed to have found something last week against Tennessee. Now the Titans defense is no where near the Texans defense but watch out for Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler they have good chemistry and trust in one another. Matt Forte is one of the best in the league and you have to worry about him in the pass game too. The Texans defense will have their hands full on Sunday night.

The key for the Texans is to get Arian Foster going early and get a lead. Make the Bears play catch up and keep their defense guessing. If they can do that JJ Watt and the defense should be able to get some pressure on Cutler and make him make some bad decisions.

Predictions:
Matt Schaub 15-30 200 yards TD 2 INT
Arian Foster 25 carries 95 yards TD

Bears win 24-17

The Bears defense forces some key turnovers and Texans just can’t over come them. A close hard fought game between two good teams though.
