The Sunday night game is one that every fan of the NFL will be watching here in Week 10. Two 7-1 powerhouses will be battling it out in what is sure to be an entertaining showcase where both team defenses should dictate the play.
The Texans only loss of the season came to a surging Green Bay team in week 6 and they are currently 3-0 on the road. The Bears on the other hand are riding a 6 game winning streak into the game having not lost since week 2, also to Green Bay coincidentally. Funny enough the Bears and Texans are also the top 2 teams in the league in terms of point differential with the Bears +116 and the Texans +100 through week 9.

Thoughts and Prediction
I’m a little bit surprised that the Bears aren’t bigger favorites in this one considering they are playing at home and have simply been tearing up their competition over the past several weeks. The only win they had by less than 6 points this season was a 23-22 victory over the Panthers. Simply put the Bears have had no trouble putting up points. A lot of that is thanks to their defense that seems to put up as many points as they allow.
The Texans have lived up to the hype this season, but really their schedule has not been very difficult. They’ve only played 3 teams that are currently above .500. That said they did destroy the 6-2 Ravens a few weeks ago, but that was at home.
The same argument can be made in an even stronger fashion with the Bears though because they haven’t played a team above .500 on their entire 6 game winning streak.
That said both teams have won the games they have been given.
I still like the Bears in this one though. Their defense is just too good right now and if they can force some turnovers they should be in a good spot to pull out this game.
