Houston Texans vs. Chicago Bears: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
The Houston Texans took down the Chicago Bears 13-6 in a sloppy game. Jay Cutler left the game with a concussion, and the Bears offense was unable to sniff the end zone.
Four turnovers by the Bears proved to be costly, preventing them from capitalizing on short fields. Arian Foster was the key for the Texans, totaling 102 rushing yards on 29 carries.
Houston improves to 8-1, and continue to sit pretty atop the AFC. For the Bears, they fall to 7-2 and were unable to tie the Falcons for the best record in the conference.
The field was a mess, and so was the game. Credit to Houston for grinding it out.
The Bears turn it over on downs and that's the ball game folks. Ugly game for Chicago. Must fix the offense before a Monday Night Football matchup next week with the San Francisco 49ers.
On another note, Henry Melton has had himself a game.
Shayne Graham connected on a 42-yard field goal, putting the Texans up by a touchdown. The Bears offense followed by going three-and-out. Kellen Davis dropped a catchable ball on third down, and may be booed out of Chicago after this game.
The Texans are one score away from sealing the deal.
Thank you Bomani Jones for echoing all of Bears fans' thoughts about Campbell's 45-yard toss.
yeah, caleb hanie ain't making that throw.— Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) November 12, 2012
Brandon Marshall's 45-yard reception set up an easy field goal for Robbie Gould. The Bears defense has done a great job containing Houston in the second half. Texans still have the lead 10-6 late in the third quarter.
After a 28-yard punt, the Bears will start with the ball on their own 48-yard line. It's time they begin taking advantage of these short fields before it's too late.
The Bears offense stalled and they had to punt, but the ball was downed inside the five-yard line. Not many bright spots for the unit thus far, but the fact that J.J. Watt's name has rarely been mentioned is a credit to Gabe Carimi.
Big loss for the Bears; Jay Cutler is out for the game with a concussion. It's Jason Campbell time.
In one of the uglier halves of football all season, the Texans lead the Bears 10-3. The Bears offense has been awful, totaling the same amount of first downs as turnovers (four). Matt Forte has yet to get things going on the ground, while Arian Foster is well on his way to a 100-yard outing.
Luckily for the Bears, they are only down one score and will get the ball first after halftime.
Four turnovers for the Bears now after another interception by Cutler. Good field position has been depleted by giving the ball back to the Texans.
In other news, Cutler once again shows how tough he is, despite all other perceptions of the highly-criticized quarterback.

Jay Cutler threw a pass to Devin Hester that would have given the Bears the ball in the red zone, but he was past the line of scrimmage. Instead, the play was wiped away and he took a bone-crushing hit for nothing. Nevertheless, Cutler scrambled for a first down after the review.
Arian Foster is having himself a game in the first half. Foster is gashing the Bears' defense on the ground, making them pay for their over-pursuit. Foster capped off the drive with a two-yard reception for a touchdown. Texans lead 10-3.
The Bears are finally on the board after a 51-yard field goal from Robbie Gould. Both offenses have not allowed the weather to keep them from airing it out, but someone should tell these coordinators they have two of the best backs in the NFL. Run the ball!
Tim Jennings adds another interception to his impressive 2012 campaign. Jennings was ruled down at the Texans' 37 yard-line, but it appeared that he was only touched by Lance Briggs. The play is under review.
Daniel Manning is having quite a return to Soldier Field, picking off Jay Cutler at the Texans' five yard-line. The conditions are not ideal, but the Bears' offense still deserves an "F" thus far.
Tim Jennings jumps a curl route and picks off Matt Schaub at Houston's 45 yard-line. It is the third turnover of the game, and the seventh interception of the year for Jennings.
Bears put the ball on the ground once again. After electing to go for the first down on 4th-and-inches, Michael Bush fumbled past the sticks. First down Houston.
Bears defensive end Shea McClellin has been taken to the locker room to be tested for a concussion. Could be a big loss for the Chicago pass rush.
The Kellen Davis fumble led to a 20-yard field goal from Shayne Graham. Winning the turnover battle will be key in this contest. Texans up 3-0.
Speaking of turnovers, Kellen Davis coughs it up after a hard hit from former Bear Daniel Manning. Davis has made a habit out of dropping the ball this season.
Bears defense/special teams nearly came up with a turnover on the opening kickoff, but the runner was ruled down. It is only delaying the inevitable, though.
National Weather Service in Chicago forecast: Chance of precipitation tonight is 100%. Low around 36. Winds could gust as high as 45 mph.

It's going to be a wet and windy one at Soldier Field tonight. As if the offenses weren't going to have enough problems against these stingy defenses.
so apparently they're expecting Old Testament weather tonight in Chicago? gonna be a fun one— trey wingo (@wingoz) November 11, 2012
