Default Re: week 10 VS Bears. Lets Predict :)

Sorry but I am not thinking this will be a loss. Chicago, much like the Texans, haven't seen a good defense all year and like the Texans, the one good team they played, they got beat, by the same GB team that beat the Texans.

The next 2 games for the Bears will be telling in the fact they have the Texans and the 49ers back to back weeks...

I think it will be a defensive battle and the team with the most turnovers, loses. Cutler is far more prone to turn the ball over than Schaub is.

I am predicting a 17-10 or 20-17 win for the Texans...

I think we'll win this game going away. Chicago is a lot like the Texans in that they're beating up on a lot of weak sisters.

Chicago has a good D, but so do we.
IMO, our O is better than than theirs and the differences show up in a big way Sunday night.

31-17

Fourteen of their points today came off defense and special teams, all in the first quarter.

Put the Titans in a bad position of having to play from behind with a bad offense and QB.

I am not 100% sold on the Bears at this stage.

Then again I am still not 100% sold on the Texans either.

We will have to get a early lead and win the turnover battle. If we put Cutler under pressure he will crumble, thats when we can't give there D any motivation.

If we can do that.
Texans- 20
Bears- 13

Apparently some of them think it won't be competitive.

http://www.chicitysports.com/forum/s...ve-as-it-looks

I think that even if it's a loss it can still be competitive.

I think if we play next week like we played this week, we're gonna be bear food. I'm hoping we pull it together and NOT lose however, as I don't relish another embarassing loss on national TV.

we have always sucked after our bye week, i was not a bit surprised about or sloppy play BUT we did clean it up in the 2nd half. I think we will be ok and i look for our D to give Cutler all kinds of problems. GO TEXANS

I will be honest i have waited so long for this team to be good and now that they are it feels like its to good to be true. Lets just enjoy the ride folks it is nice to expect to win instead of hoping to win.

Texans 27, Bears 17

The Texans have a lot to prove in this game.

They'll get it done on NBC's Sunday Night football this time around.

We're very similar teams. Strong opportunistic D, explosive and versatile running back, big playmaking wide receiver on the outside. The difference will probably be which quarterback handles the challenges better. We've all seen Schaub get flustered, but we've seen Cutler throw 4 picks as well.

I'll take Schaub.

20-17 good guys.

I'm thinking it's a very defensive game, close and low scoring.

Maybe their defense isn't as scary as we all think? They give up 4.3 ypc rushing, which is 20th in the league. They're also giving up 230 passing yards/game, which is mediocre being ranked right in the middle at 16th. Where they do excel at is forcing turnovers. They lead the league in interceptions and forced fumbles & recoveries.

So the recipe for a Texan victory seems quite simple... protect the ball!!! Expect alot of conservative play-calling by Kubes.

My 3 keys to success:
1) Protect the football
2) Do NOT kick to Hester
3) Stay committed to the run

We do this, we win a close game.
Texans 20
Bears 13

The Bears are the ultimate throwback Tampa 2 defense.
They are extremely fast and tough at all levels. A typical Bears play is to rush 4 with 7 in coverage, and proceed to intercept passes and/or knock the piss out of the receiver.
Their cornerback Charles Tillman forced four fumbles today.

The one and only clear advantage the Texans have is O-line.

This game will be as hard or harder than the Green Bay game. I predict that whoever wins will score less than 20 points. Give the edge to Texans because Jay will probably throw a dumb interception under pressure.

Texans 17-14.

The opening spread for this game is Bears -1. Thought it'd be slightly higher like a -2.5 or -3.5 since we're on the road, but I'll take it. This is going to be a grind out game. Like 17-14 ish.

The Bears have nowhere near the potential to spin the scoreboard like the Packers have unless their defense and special teams is scoring.

Bears and Texans Defense are both top notch.

Houston's offense better than Bears offense.

Bears Special Teams MUCH better than Houston's special teams.

Houston can win this game by beating down Cutler who gets razzled if he's hit enough. Houston should come away 8-1 after the Chicago game, but I wouldn't put any money on it.

The Texans Dline will rattle Cutler early and often. He will throw another tantrum and the Bears will go down with him.
