Default Houston Texans @ Chicago Bears. 7:20. 11/11. **Official GameDay Thread**

The Night Game, Part III



Quote:
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.''

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!!!!!

I'm expecting the worst, which is not terrible (7-2), and hoping for the best.

urgh game doesn't kick off until 1am over here, and for some reason I'm not confident as much as I'd love to be.

Another long wait time, but can't wait for this game. We should probably sticky this thread and take down the Baltimore game day thread.

I just have a feeling this game is going to have a lot of highs and lows. So much adrenaline just to watch this game as fan... it's a regular season game yet I feel like it has a playoff feel to it for some reason.

Hell no! That game was a thing of beauty. I've rewatched it about six times now and re-read the thread twice.

L-O-L!

We should see a steady dose of these.


The flip card.

The ref: Gene Steratore

OLB CONNOR BARWIN
• Can register a sack in three consecutive games for the first time this season and the third time in his career.

RB ARIAN FOSTER
• Can extend his team record by scoring a touchdown in his 11th con- secutive regular-season game. Including the playoffs, Foster has scored in 12 straight games.
• Needs 1 rushing TD to reach 40 for his career.
• Needs 133 rushing yards to reach 4,000 for his career.

WR ANDRE JOHNSON
• Can extend his franchise-record streak of consecutive games played with a reception to 91.
• Needs 2 receptions to reach 750 for his career.
• Needs 3 receptions to pass Hall of Fame WRs Charlie Joiner and Michael Irvin (750) for 30th on the NFL’s all-time receptions list.
• Can record his 41st career 100-yard receiving game and third this season.
• Needs 49 receiving yards to pass Hall of Fame WR Lance Alworth (10,266) for 33rd on the NFL’s all-time receiving yardage list.

DE J.J. WATT
• Needs 2.0 sacks to pass Connor Barwin (11.5, 2011) and Mario Williams (12.0, 2008) for the second-highest single-season total in team history. Williams holds the franchise record with 14.0 sacks in 2007.

If we win the turnover battle, we win this game. Oh, and we don't kick the ball anywhere close to Hester.
