AFC Game Of The Week
Texans (7-1) at Bears (7-1)
Texans: When we talk about complete teams in football, the Houston Texans
will come into conversation. They can control the clock with the time of
possession battle by running Arian Foster, throw it with the best of them and
they show great balance offensively. As a defense, they still get the job done
despite not having their voice in the middle in Brian Cushing but JJ Watt has
played phenomenally on the defensive side of the football and is a serious
candidate for defensive MVP. If the Texans continue their winning ways, it’s a safe thing to say the road to the Super Bowl in the AFC will go through Houston come January. Sunday will be a big challenge. This Texans offense hasn’t seen a defense quite like they’ll see Sunday night at Solider Field. Can Houston get a win in the Windy City?
Bears: The Bears defense is Jay Cutler’s security blanket.
He knows this unit which I feel is the best in the league will create turnovers
and a score a touchdown on that side of the football 1-2 times a game but this
offense is extremely capable of scoring and they need to capitalize when the
opportunity is available. These next two weeks, we will see who the Bears really
are. They face the Texans on Sunday night who is arguably the best team in the
AFC and next Monday night they travel to San Francisco to face those 49ers, I’m just curious to see how they will do against some elite competition. This Bears
defense is the definition of opportunistic. They just don’t want to sack the QB,
get interceptions and create fumbles, they want to score and put points on the
scoreboard and they’ve shown us they’re capable of doing just that. It’ll be a
battle come Sunday night.
Prediction: For Houston to win this game, they cannot turn
the ball over. To defeat a stingy defense like the Bears you must continue to
run the football. Can this Bears offense put together a complete game? I like
the Bears at home to take this one. Bears 26 Texans 21
