    For the first time all season, the Houston Texans have finally gotten over the hump with a better than .500 record by defeating the Chicago Bears at home 17-14. The game as close as it sounds, with both teams going back and forth all day. The difference would likely be due to the turnover differential, a slight 3 takeaways to 2 by the Texans. Chicago would get on the board first after neither team could score on their opening possessions, when Michael Huff would pick up a Matt Schaub sack/fumble and scamper in untouched for the TD. Schaub and the Texans would bounce back, mounting 2 scoring drives capped off by TD passes to Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels to put the Texans up 14-3. The Bears would get a TD on a deep ball to a wide open Earl Bennett for a big 83 yard score. The Texans would add a field goal and that would be the difference in this one. Unsung hero of the game would be Arian Foster, rushing for 115 yards on 21 carries.

    The Texans now move to 8-7 with still a shot at the postseason, but they will need some help; let's take a look at the graphic, this is what needs to happen for Houston to give coach SD his first post-season birth in the 12th Man:

    Seriously, though their only shot appears to be where Tennessee loses their next 2, Miami or Cleveland lose in week 17, Cincinnati loses in week 17, Pittsburgh loses one of their last 2, and Houston beats NYJets in week 17 or Tennessee loses only 1 of their next 2, Miami, Cleveland, and Cincinnati lose in week 17, Pittsburgh loses one of their last 2, and Houston beats NYJets in week 17; maybe the chalkboard picture explains it easier lol
