The Bears had a chance to turn around the season and maybe get back into the playoff race…then lost to the Lions late.
The Texans predictably fell to Indianapolis last weekend.
Neither team has much to play for these days might be playing for lame-duck coaches. This one could be pretty ugly.
Houston has been playing better under interim coach Romeo Crenel but to what end. They have won some games, though if you look closely they have not beaten a good team, and took another loss to one last week.
The absence of WR Will Fuller did not stop Deshaun Watson from putting up a bunch of yards. He has 341 against a good Colts defense last week. Houston actually outgained Indianapolis.
Turnovers were the key as the Texans lost that battle 2-0, something that you can’t do when you are the lesser team. They also had trouble protecting Watson, they gave up three sacks.
Their own pass rush was solid with three sacks. That has been a struggle all season long. Getting pressure on the Bears passers will only make a bad lot look worse.
As the line indicates this is a game the Texans should win. This year that has been anything but a guarantee.
It looked like the Bears had ended their losing streak last week against Detroit, until it didn’t. They are now at six in a row.
The thirty points they scored against Detroit matched a season-high. QB Mitch Trubisky was solid, he did not make the mistakes he has made in the past
Chicago actually had a running game last week too with 140 yards on the ground. All season long that has been a challenge. Using Cordarelle Patterson as a runner was very effective.
The defense fell apart against the pass last week allowing Matt Stafford to throw for over 400 yards. The defense was the lone constant this season and if they have given up now things could get really ugly.
As this is being written I wonder about the job security of Matt Nagy. It would not surprise me if he is not the coach by the time we get to kickoff.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Houston -2.5
I don’t see how you can have any confidence in Chicago right now. They are at home but is that really going to be an advantage if the defense is slipping? You can at least trust that Watson is going to give you a good effort and outplay the Chicago quarterback. That is probably more than enough to get the win on the road.
