The Night Game, Part III

http://i50.tinypic.com/dpwcwm.jpg

An extremely opportunistic defense has helped the Chicago Bears take advantage of a favorable first-half schedule and build plenty of confidence for what is expected to be a more grueling second half.

A balanced offense and strong defense are two major reasons why the Houston Texans have the best record in the AFC.

Two of the NFL's top teams meet Sunday night at Soldier Field when the Texans try to prevent the Bears from winning seven straight games for the first time in six years.

This contest is expected to be a good test for both 7-1 teams that hope to make it to New Orleans come February. Each team's only loss came to the surging Green Bay Packers, and the Bears are 4-0 at home while Houston is 3-0 on the road.

"Each game as you continue to win, the stakes go up a little bit higher," Bears coach Lovie Smith. "We realize that and we're going to embrace it. We're going to embrace this national stage that we have this Sunday night."

Only one of Chicago's victories has come against a team with a winning record heading into Week 10, and Sunday begins a stretch where it plays seven of its final eight against opponents at .500 or better. Looking to win seven in a row for the first time since opening 7-0 in 2006, the Bears welcome the challenge.

"I don't want the guys to start thinking, 'Hey, let's hold on, something bad's going to happen,''' Smith said. "We're a good football team. We're excited about playing the Texans. I see our team getting better and better. We haven't peaked yet.''

It's hard to believe the Bears can get better defensively.

They are second in the NFL in scoring defense at 15.0 points per game, tied for third with 25 sacks and lead the league with 28 forced turnovers. Charles Tillman forced four fumbles and Brian Urlacher returned an interception 46 yards for Chicago's seventh defensive touchdown in last Sunday's 51-20 rout at Tennessee.

"(The Bears) are very well-built in what they do and they've been together for a long time,'' Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. "What they're doing speaks for itself. We have a serious task ahead of us.''

MORE PICKS: http://challengegames.nfl.com/pickem/experts?module=HP11_hot_topics#game-day-morning

What I want to see:

Screens and more screens

It's time. It's time to break these out. Foster hasn't been featured much in the screen game. Time for that to change.

Attack the Bears interior line

They have some of the weaker guards in the league. It's time to further exploit this portion of their line.

Keep feeding Andre

8, 9 and 8. That's Dre's catch total the last few weeks. That right there...keep doing it. Tillman, Revis or whoever; keep going to your workhorse.

Frustrate Mr. Cutler

Letting him get hot is not up for discussion. Blitzing him, getting in his face with just 4 rushers, and batting some balls down could play a key role in doing this.




Ahh, yes...the night game again, folks. Time to show this country what's up this time. The goals don't change, however. 1-0 each week is first and foremost. Let's walk into Soldier Field 7-1, leave 8-1, and make sure the loud sound the rest of the country heard were the Texan fans going nuts after a big time W! LET'S MUTHA****IN' GO, TEXANS!!!!!

But yeah, I hope we kick away from Hester as much as possible.

If your comcast goes out, you could always watch the game online. I think NBC offers live streaming of SNF on their website.

They sent some kind of reset to my box from *wherever*, then I reset the box by pulling the power cord out the back, waiting a minute, then plugging it back in. I was getting all my channels, it's just the HD channels weren't in HD. My problem actually started yesterday when I had a power outage in my apartment, so I wasn't having a "service interuption" which is what it sounds like you are having. Good luck to you.

The weather worries me, this game is about Texans (fewest turnovers) vs Bears (Turnover machine) the weather will hurt the Texans. But if you want to be a champion you must overcome adversity.

Hey Texans fans. Bears fan here.

Just thought I'd throw out my thoughts prior to the game.

-- First off, the time Schaub is likely going to have scares me. The Bears are going to play to stop Foster (i.e., Contain on the edges, blitz rarely) most likely, and Schaub is more than accurate enough when he's got time.

-- Daniels and Cody being out are going to hurt...possibly Daniels more so than Cody.

-- Alshon Jeffery is still out for the Bears, too. He can play. Cutler will probably target Marshall 1408929 times tonight.

-- Houston scares me. A lot. I think the Bears have the better defense, but it's close. I think Houston has the better offense, clearly. The game being in chicago may come in to play. Weather is supposed to be nasty.

-- Here's to good health for everyone tonight. Everyone party hard, be safe, and enjoy football.

I've always liked the Texans fan base. You guys stay classy.

Why the hell can't we just start downing the ball into the end zone and not sending a returner out there? I'm so sick and tired of the problem on our special teams muffing punts and fumbling on returns. Just start off from the god damn 20 yard line already. So sick of this ****!!

Think the Bears look well prepared for us tbh and see our O being slowed (not stopped) by it all game.

Great play by DMan for the turnover, shame we only took 3 from it, but I can see it being a game of 3 pointers.

It does make sense. You dont want Hester returning, and kicking short you may get someone on the ball with less experience, running with a wet ball. We might get a fumble out of that :)
