Chicago Bears

Keys to a Bears victory over the Texans in Week 3

The Chicago Bears have a chance to wash the bitter aftertaste of their Week 2 loss to Green Bay with a tilt against the winless Houston Texans at Soldier Field on Sunday.

After a surprising first half against the Colts in Week 1, the Texans have largely sputtered, scoring just one touchdown in six quarters. Their defense is well-coached and tenacious but lacks an elite playmaker or two that can wreck an offense’s gameplan, something that both of the Bears’ first two opponents had.

This is a game that the Bears should win, but they’ll still need to bring their A-game to avoid the upset. Here are my three keys to victory for Week 3.
