Default Battle of Super Bowl hopefuls set for 'Sunday Night Football'

By Dan Pompei, Chicago Tribune reporter

7:04 p.m. CST, November 4, 2012
Quick look: Finally, the Bears get a true test against a Super Bowl contender.

The Texans might be the best team in the AFC. They would like to prove they can beat one of the elite teams from the NFC after losing to the Packers earlier this season.

The Texans are a little like the Bears in that they win with an overpowering defense led by a strong front. Their defense would be even better if the Texans hadn't lost inside linebacker Brian Cushing for the season.

Offensively, the Texans are keyed by running back Arian Foster, who is one of the best runners in the league, and an effective offensive line. The Texans came into Week 9 leading the league in time of possession.

The Texans have committed only six turnovers, so it will be a challenge for the Bears to come up with takeaways against this team.

Key stat: The Texans have not allowed a rushing touchdown all season. The Bears have allowed only two.

Key matchup: Texans defensive end J.J. Watt versus Bears right tackle Gabe Carimi. These two know each other well from their days at Wisconsin. The Bears will have to give Carimi help on passing downs, as Watt has been impossible to block this season. On run downs, this will be a good matchup of two power players.

Dan Pompei's early pick: Bears 17, Texans 16.

I can not wait for this game. Should be a good one. I think we win if we dont give up any ST touchdowns (or crazy field position).

If we play as we did against Bills, I see a loss on horizon.

I think the Packers or 49ers are probably likelier to be in the Super Bowl, but the Bears are a great team and should really give us some insight into what the 2012 Texans are all about.

Remember the Packers game! should be this week's mantra. Fortunately, Cutler is nothing even close to Rodgers.

Default Re: Battle of Super Bowl hopefuls set for 'Sunday Night Football'

This game falls to Schaub imo. While the Chi defense can be ran on, their D is living off of interceptions this year and our running game isnt exactly on fire so far this season. Schaub must play a clean game for us to have a chance.

Conversely we will look to shut down the run again this week. Essentially bringing this game down to Schaub vs Cutler. So who has a better game? If I am Kubiak I target AJ all night long.

I beg to differ.. I think that if we duplicate what we did against the bills, OUR 3 touchdowns will trump the Bears 3 field goals.

i hope that matt schaub and the texans dont choke like they usually do in prime time games.

these are the type of games that schaub needs to do well in because it seems like every big road game schaub never can get it done.

there's a reason why schaub has yet to play in a playoff game.

He's a choker. he always plays like crap on the road and craps the bed in crucial situations vs elite teams.

Nate... This is off topic but your avi (Schaub's pic) for some reason, really creeps me out and has for a really long time....

BTW, I agree with the "doom and gloom" from that dude.... Somehow being 7-1 sucks??????? I hope he takes advantage of the link you provided!

**************
That said and totally irrelevant, I expect the Texans to play a way better game than they did v. the Green Bay game. I think (obviously) they have a chance to win but my gut tells me they will lose in a close game....

FOOTBALL GODS, PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG.... I COMPEL YOU!!

It is like extreme a half empty VS a half full kinda thing may be? No matter what you say to the one who is extreme a half empties, will not going to change their points of view. This is how it is. I guess, this is a kind of uniqueness makes us as human being.

I hope the Texans comes up with W against Bears!!!

Go Texans!!!

Yes you do.

And I'm pretty sure the only reason he didn't play in 2 playoff games last year was because he was injured, otherwise I think Kubes might've let him start over TJ.

But then again you probably just became a fan before they went to the playoffs last year so you probably didn't know Schaub was actually the starter before he was injured.
