Johnathan Joseph: A-
Johnathan Joseph’s primary task coming into this game was to hold Brandon Marshall in check. Joseph, however, did more than just that. Aside from one long completed bomb, he completely shut the star receiver down. Joseph had a great game, and it’s clear that the ill-effects of his injury are quickly fading away.
Kareem Jackson: A
Not enough positive words can be shed on Kareem Jackson’s dramatic improvement this season. Jackson, once the most criticized athlete in Houston, is now actually propelling the Texans to victory, not hindering them from achieving it. Jackson picked off Cutler once this game, increasing his total to four on the year, which happens to be the total that Johnathan Joseph amounted in all of last season.
Danieal Manning: A
In his first return to Chicago after the organization failed to resign him there, Danieal Manning clearly played like he had a chip on his shoulder. Manning forced two turnovers in the game, an interception and a fumble. He also very solid in coverage, and also contributed to the Texans’ run-stopping efforts.
Glover Quin: A-
Although Glover Quin did not make any flashy or exciting plays, he played a very important role in this game. All game long, Quin was tasked with assisting Johnathan Joseph with covering Brandon Marshall on the deep ball. Due to his effective coverage, the normally explosive Marshall was only able to make one big play.
