Aaron Bennett, WCIA-TV Champaign, Illinois-Texans 20 Bears 17
"It's a matchup of two of the hottest teams in the NFL. Generally I would pick the Bears in a game like this at Soldier Field, but just as Chicago is undefeated at home, Houston is perfect on the road. The Bears could be missing at least one key piece of their defense for this one, and if that's the case I'm not sure they'll be able to stifle the Texans like they have others in recents weeks."
Kurt Pegler, WMBD-TV Peoria, Illinois-Bears 24 Texans 21
"After scoring 51 points last week in the win at Tennessee, I'm not sure the Bears will score half that against the Houston defense. It should be a game of field position and it may come down to a Robbie Gould field goal in the fourth quarter."
Scott Leber, WTVO-TV Rockford, Illinois-Texans 17 Bears 13
"Two great defenses and most likely a wet field will combine to keep the score low. The Bears offensive line will struggle with J.J. Watts, and former Illini Whitney Mercilus and the Texans' pass rush. The Texans give up the fewest turnovers in the NFL. They'll be better prepared than most teams to prevent the Bears from getting takeaways."
