Honestly I think the key to the Bears winning tonights game is their ability to protect Cutler who has taken a beating often this season and sustaining drives.
For the Texans , its going to boil down to making no mistakes on ST and protecting the ball - limit turnovers and opportunity for the Bears defense to produce points.
We won't be in our base personnel against a one-back set.
Granted, they do use one of their TEs as a FB from time to time and can motion this guy to the H position. In that case, I see one of our LBs (either the Mo or the Will) bumping and staying with them. Both of them are rookies; we shouldn't have any problem there.
Our FS will stay deep to play the post route.
JJo will take care of the skinny post and anything to the outside.
As far as the rest, I agree. If we keep our mistake to the norm, we should have a great chance of winning the game.
