Questions lingered in the offseason about the Bears defense, particularly with its young safeties. Many were not sure how they would perform, but both Chris Conte and Major Wright have made big strides this season.
Wright has been opportunistic in the passing game, sitting with three interceptions this season, but his forte has always been his ability to stop the run. The strong safety is expected to come up in the box and make stops on key running situations, and this season he has done just that.
The Texans offense revolves around its ability to run the football with Arian Foster, and with his ability to break off the big run, Wright's tackling abilities will be put to the test. He has 32 tackles on the season and will likely find his way into the box a lot on Sunday night.
With a bruising runner like Foster who has a knack for keeping runs alive, Wright will need to get low and go after his legs, because if he breaks free, he has a chance to take it to the house.
