Sunday Night Football Schedule 2012: Chicago Bears Host Houston Texans On Nov. 11

The Chicago Bears' seemingly favorable 2012 schedule was released on Tuesday night, a slate characterized by prime time games.

The Texans finally broke through to the playoffs last season for the first time in franchise history, and even earned a win. Houston downed the Cincinnati Bengals in a meeting of two rookie quarterbacks in the opening round before falling to the Baltimore Ravens. With quarterback Matt Schaub returning from injury and his favorite target, wide receiver Andre Johnson, as destructive as ever, the Texans will certainly be a formidable opponent for Chicago.

Thankfully for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, Houston lost Mario Williams, the team's only elite pass rusher, to the Buffalo Bills during free agency.
