Texans vs. Bears: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

Chicago can make its mark on national television with a victory over the 7-1 Texans.

The Chicago Bears have emerged as one of the top teams in the NFC, but it still may have a bad taste in its mouth dating back to the one blemish on its resumé. That would be team's Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers in which the Bears were dominated on national television. Since then, though, they've won six straight and will have a chance to leave their mark on a big stage when they host the Houston Texans on Sunday night.

The Texans, coincidentally enough, have also lost to just the Packers this year, and were equally embarrassed in that game. Sunday night's game figures to be a defensive battle, as both teams rank in the Top 5 in points allowed per game. Houston will have to contend with a Bears defense that has taken ballhawking to a new level, while Chicago's forever-maligned offensive line will need to figure out a way stop J.J. Watt from terrorizing Jay Cutler.

The game kicks off on Sunday night at 7:20 p.m. CT on NBC.
