Houston Texans vs Chicago Bears is the Sunday Night Football game in the NFL Week 10 schedule. These two teams have among the best records in the league this season so far and this promises to be a mouth-watering encounter between two of the best teams. The game is scheduled to start at 8.20 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Both teams enter this match up with a record of 7-1 and have both displayed rock solid defenses, as well as lightning quick and powerful offensive units so far this season. Both have defenses that have slightly overshadowed their offenses, and interestingly both have only lost the Green Bay Packers this year.
This clash will see two of the NFL's top defenders meet when J.J. Watt faces off against
Charles Tillman. It promises to be a match up of epic proportions.
The Houston Texans are top of the AFC South and are being chased by Indianapolis who have a 6-3 record. A loss here today for the Texans could open the door for the Colts to seriously challenge Houston for the divisional title.
Meanwhile, the Bears are top of the NFC North, but are being chased similarly by the Green Bay Packers who are also 6-3. Again a loss today for the Bears would make it a much closer contest for the divisional title, and one in which a resurgent Packers would feel confident of winning.
This game has it all. It features elite running backs Arian Foster and Matt Forte, as well as some of the top NFL defensive players and interception master in Tim Jennings. Both teams should easily clinch a play off spot from here but a loss today could knock the confidence of one team and be potentially harmful to their postseason prospects.
For the Texans it would be great to win today, as they still have six games left against teams with .500 or better, and will have to play the Indianapolis Colts twice, which in all likelihood will decide the divisional title for the AFC South.
Similarly for the Bears a win today could be vital, as all their remaining games will be against teams with more than .500 except one, the Arizona Cardinals. Another game against the Green Bay Packers is also scheduled, which equally could decide the outcome of the NFC North divisional title.
