J.J. Watt Leads The Houston Texans With Intensity, Leadership, And Pure Skill

The Houston Texans have long seen their offense strike when the iron is hot and consistently run up the score, but they’ve needed the defense to keep the lead. With some players leaving and others are not living up to the hype, J.J. Watt brings the whole package to a team that is getting better every season.

McNeil: Time For Cutler To Step Up And Define His Bears Career

I’m relieved the Bears have concluded the junior varsity portion of their schedule and finally have a worthy opponent Sunday night at Soldier Field. The comedy of errors in Nashville was entertaining, but it’s time for a 15-round bout between two legitimate heavyweight contenders.

Durkin: Know Your Opponent – Houston Texans

Not many teams could withstand injuries to their three best offensive players and achieve what the Houston Texans did in 2011. Bears fans can relate to this better than anyone, watching last season bottom out after losing Jay Cutler and Matt Forte.
