Texans play takeaway early, get early 3-0 lead

Matt Schaub AP

With the weather conditions awful and two teams that are willing to run and play defense, Sunday night’s Texans-Bears game figured to come down to turnovers.

The Bears led the league with 28 takeaways this season, but so far, the Texans have the early edge in that category, a 2-1 advantage.

The Texans have forced a pair of fumbles already, though they have just a 3-0 lead to show for it.

Bears cornerback Tim Jennings just got his seventh pick of the year to narrow the gap.

Stay tuned, because the last one may win this game.

    How ironic that we are turnover prone.

    This is the same officiating crew that butchered last weeks Giants Steelers game. They look lost again tonight.

    Why does the league keep putting this clown crew on prime time?

    Is Jay Cutler going to get fined for wearing orange shoes?

    My question, is when the QB makes a illegal foward pass, how can you rough the passer?

    I know refs didn’t use that term exactly, but once the QB is pass the line of scrimage isn’t he treated as a running back.

    The Bears are who everyone outside Chicago thought they were:

    An average overall team that has played crap for competition.
