Texans defeat Bears on Sunday night, 13-6

The Houston Texans took advantage of four takeaways and defeated the Chicago Bears Sunday night, 13-6.

The Chicago Bears turned the ball over four times in the first half on two Jay Cutler interceptions, one fumble from Michael Bush and one fumble from tight end Kellen Davis, digging themselves in a hole they could not get out of.

Jay Cutler was hit hard as he stepped up to throw late in the second quarter, and although he finished the first half, he was diagnosed with a concussion at halftime and did not return to the game.


Backup quarterback Jason Campbell took over for the injured Cutler and led the Bears into the Houston redzone, however, they had to settle for a field goal to cut the deficit, 10-6. The field goal would be all the offense the Jason Campbell led Bears could muster.


Statistically, no offensive player performed exceptionally well, but on a wet, rainy night, Matt Schaub's drive in the first half, which led to the only touchdown of the night, proved to be the difference. Schaub was 14-of-26 for 95 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Arian Foster rushed 29 times for 102 yards, adding 15 yards and one touchdown receiving as well.


Jason Campbell was 11-of-19 for 94 yards through the air, and Matt Forte rushed 16 times for only 39 yards. Brandon Marshall had seven receptions for 99 yards. Bears cornerback Tim Jennings had two interceptions in the first half and now has eight interceptions on the season.


Houston, a one-point underdog, covered the spread with their seven point victory.

Jay Cutler leaves with a concussion

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a concussion and will not return to Sunday night's game against the Houston Texans. Veteran backup Jason Campbell replaced Cutler when the team returned to the field after halftime.

Cutler took a nasty hit from Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins on a third-down play in the second quarter of the game. Dobbins received an unnecessary roughness penalty on the play, but an offsetting foul by Cutler gave the Bears a second chance. Cutler carried the ball himself on the next play, diving head first for a new set of downs before throwing his second interception of the game.

The Bears starting quarterback has yet to miss a full game this season, though Jason Campbell has taken a few snaps in his place in the weeks prior to this one. This is the second time in his career that Cutler has suffered a concussion.

Cutler leaves the game 7-for-14 with 40 yards. he ran the ball three times for 37 yards.
