The Houston Texans managed to slip by the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
Sunday night's game between two of the NFL's best teams knocked quarterback Jay Cutler and defensive end Shea McClellin out of the showdown. Both Cutler and McClellin spent the second half of the game in the locker room because of concussions.
While the Bears have forced more turnovers than any other team in the NFL, the Texans were able to beat them at their own game. They came away with four takeaways and Arian Foster was the only reliable offensive player on either side. Foster scored the only touchdown of the game.
This was the fifth time since 1970 that two NFL teams with one loss or less have faced off this late in the season. The Texans walk out of Soldier Field tied for the NFL's best record at 8-1 for the season while the Bears are now 7-2.
The Monsters of the Midway were hoping to catch a break with harsh weather that arrived just in time for kickoff. While the Bears are used to playing in detrimental conditions in an outdoor stadium, the elements ended up being more advantageous for the Texans.
