Texans not worried with cold, rainy forecast vs. Bears


The Houston Texans and Chicago Bears highlight this week's slate of games. The two teams sport identical 7-1 records, but the Bears do have the advantage of hosting at Soldier Field.

Not only do the Texans have to face a Bears team with, arguably, the league's most dynamic defense, but Houston has to deal with the Chicago weather.

Temperatures are predicted to drop into the 30's with rain showers for the 8:20 p.m. kickoff. The weather in Houston still provides comfortable summer-like days.

"You've got to handle it," coach Gary Kubiak told the Houston Chronicle. "I think our guys get excited for a little cool weather. It's still 80 degrees out there today and, here it is, the middle of November."

Weather always brings up the issue of ball protection. And the Bears lead the league with 28 takeaways. The Texans have a league-low six giveaways.

"We pride ourselves in taking care of the football, converting on third down, scoring points in the red zone and keeping the other (offense) off the field," quarterback Matt Schaub said. "The weather is going to be what the weather is. It's that way for both teams. You've just got to go play."

It helps that the Texans aren't a finesse team. They're the No. 8 run team in the league with Arian Foster carrying the ball. That always helps in nasty conditions.

Either way, both the Bears and Texans are angling for a first-round playoff bye and know they can make a statement with a win.

A guy I went to high school with (J-Mo) plays for the texans. Hopefully when he gets some tic on defense he remembers his home team

Houston Texans, Chicago Bears differ in one key area

CHICAGO'S FATAL FLAW

We came into this season wondering if Chicago's protection could hold up. The perception is that the Bears have improved on the offensive line because the team is 7-1, but that's not really the case. Only the Arizona Cardinals have given up more sacks/per game.

Even against lackluster fronts like the Tennessee Titans in Week 9, Bears quarteback Jay Cutler does not have time to set up in the pocket often. Bears fans will point out that the team is built on defense, special teams, defense, running and defense before the passing game.

Good luck with that approach in the playoffs. Just look at the other NFC contenders: San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks all have elite pass rushes. The Green Bay Packers destroyed the Bears' line in their first meeting. Chicago faces a team with a winning record for the next six games. Life is about to get a lot harder.

PRESSURE FROM ALL SIDES

Bears left tackle J'Marcus Webb and right tackle Gabe Carimi get all the attention for their struggles, but Cutler has perhaps had even more trouble with pressure up the middle. This is a problem with MVP candidate defensive end J.J. Watt coming to town. Houston presents mismatch problems at every level of the defense.

The Bears line does not communicate well, even when Cutler is nice to them. Houston can get pressure with stunts, blitzes, and simply by winning one-on-one matchups.

A NEW TEXAN TO WORRY ABOUT

Houston's first-round pick linebacker Whitney Mercilus comes on stronger every week. Linebackers Brooks Reed and Connor Barwin haven't been great this year rushing the passer, but they present problems along with Watt. The Bills only gave up eight sacks all season before facing Houston. The Texans got Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on the ground four times.

BATTLE OF THE BESTS

I was surprised to see I was the only ATL writer picking Houston. When the Texans are on the field, you have a severe mismatch up front. When the Texans offense is on the field, you have a matchup of one of the best offensive lines in football against one of the best defensive lines in Chicago. It's going to be fun to watch.

Matt Schaub is as well protected as any quarterback in football. (He's only been sacked 10 times.) He's also not very mobile. Get Schaub off the spot and you will disrupt the Texans passing game quickly.

This remains a play-action passing attack that likes to rip off big chunks of yardage. That worked well against Buffalo, but the Texans aren't as fast on the outside as they used to be. Texas receiver Andre Johnson is still very effective, but it's a little harder getting him open deep. Tight end Owen Daniels and wide receiver Kevin Walter aren't known for their speed. Daniels isn't 100 percent healthy and may not play. A third wide receiver has not stepped up.

The Bears are unbelievable at preventing the big play. It's going to be tough for the Texans to get deep or separation. FootballOutsiders ranks these two defenses as the top two against the pass. This game figures to be won on the ground.

TWO ELITE BACKS

Arian Foster is running very strong again after a relatively slow start for him. Matt Forte is playing as well as he has at any point in his Bears career, but he's not getting the ball as much as he used to.

Look for Chicago to load up Forte with carries this week. The Bears offensive line is much better run blocking than in pass protection. Forte has only received more than 16 carries in a game twice despite all of Chicago's winning. Foster has almost doubled that workload.

DEFINING GAME

Both teams fell short in their biggest moments to date this season. (Both national televised losses against the Packers.) The Texans are most vulnerable through the air, but the Bears don't have the roster to expose them. Cornerback Johnathan Joseph is playing better of late and Houston should be able to slow down Brandon Marshall. Wade Phillips is right: The Bears don't throw it to anyone else.

This is a defining game for both teams. They both think they have the best defense in football and a chance for homefield advantage in the playoffs.

The biggest difference: Houston's offense is so much further along. They will be ready Sunday night.

Arian Foster vs. Bears linebackers leads Week 10 matchups

Arian Foster vs. Lance Briggs and Brian Urlacher This is the marquee matchup of Week 10 . The 26-year-old Foster is one of the NFL's premier players. He currently leads the league in rushing touchdowns (10) and he's fifth in rushing yards (770). He doesn't have "wow" speed, but he has incredible vision, power and balance. He is averaging a league-high 24 carries per game and has yet to fumble this season. The Houston Texans ' offense is at its best when Foster gets a lot of touches and I'd look for him to get plenty against this tough Chicago Bears defense.

Briggs (31 years old) and Urlacher (34) have been the poster boys for this Bears defense over the last decade. They both continue to make impact plays on a weekly basis and they have been instrumental in the Bears ' 7-1 first-half record. Against the pass, they've combined to intercept three throws, returning all three for touchdowns. Against the run, they are physical enough to take on blockers inside the box and fast enough to run down ball carriers on the perimeter.

EDGE: Briggs and Urlacher. Their gap discipline will be a key factor in closing up Foster's cutback lanes.

Should be a good game. This is the best defense the Bears have played all season I want to see how this offense holds up. Hard to call a winner but homefield advantage may get the Bears through in this one.

Is Peanut misses this game though I'm going with Houston
