Texans vs. Bears 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Bob Levey

The Texans travel to Chicago with the hopes accomplishing what they could not at home against Green Bay.

The Houston Texans travel to take on the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, for a matchup between two of the top teams in the NFL.

The Texans recovered from a slow start after the bye week, needing a strong second half performance against the Buffalo Bills to walk away with a 21-9 win. Houston has rarely stumbled in 2012, save for a disastrous game at home against the Green Bay Packers in Week 6.

That was another prime matchup against an elite NFC opponent, and the Texans will aim to avoid the same outcome against the Bears on national television. The Bears present, once again, one of the more advantageous defenses in the NFL and have forced 11 fumbles and 17 interceptions so far in 2012. Quarterback Jay Cutler has been curtailed his early-season mistakes, passing for nine touchdowns and just two interceptions in the past five games.

The game is expected to be a close one, as Chicago is favored by just one point in the game.

Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. CT with coverage on NBC.
