Interesting Stat:

If the game is close, Cutler has been the more reliable quarterback. He is 13-15 (.464) in fourth-quarter comeback opportunities compared to 7-21 (.250) for Schaub. Worse, Schaub is 3-18 (.143) in the clutch against teams .500 or better. Cutler is 5-10 (.333).

Their o-line is terrible.
Texans come out with a mindset that the Packers game was an abberation and they will want to prove something.
While the Colts are now 6-3, the Bears beat them in Luck's first pro game.

After the Green Bay loss in week 2, they have not played a team with a winning record.

Their last six opponents have a record of 16-34. They are simply beating BAD teams, and the one game against a .500 team (Detroit) it was close at 13-7 even though it was a home game.

It's not hard to look good against Jacksonville, St Louis, Carolina, Tennessee and... Dallas!

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 too think we are very similar. On paper, it's close. To me, that says it comes down to coaching. There's going to be one or two decisions that will make or break this game. If we were heads & shoulders better than the other team, I think we'd come out with a win. But being it's the Bears...

I don't know if them boys on Kirby can overcome the man behind the menu.

I can see our offense sputtering & failing on a "game winning drive" before I would think our defense would lose the game in the final seconds.

That's not going to happen.

Yeah, I feel the same. If it comes down to the last drive of the game, I'd rather our defense be on the field.

Texans 31
Bears 17

The weird thing is, I have ZERO worry or doubt about this game. Call it crazy naivety, but I think we're going to win and win easy.

I think Cutler is easily rattled and is his own worst enemy. It will come down to QB play and how keeps their cool. Schaub doesn't get rattled like Cutler, who is apt to melt down.

I think the Bears haven't faced a really good team this year.

I think the Texans have a lot of pride going into this game to erase the debacle of the GB game on Sunday Night Football.

I think they're over the "coming out slow" issue after the bye week hump.

And I just can't wait to rub this into all my hometown friends' faces on FB after we win.
