Texans’ Run Offense vs. Bears’ Run Defense
Bears nose tackle Eddie Goldman is coming off a solid rookie campaign, and looks to be ready to build on that momentum in 2016. The additions of defensive end Akiem Hicks and inside linebackers Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman should greatly improve Chicago’s run defense that was ranked 22nd in the NFL last season. Texans running back Lamar Miller had productive seasons in Miami in 2014 and 2015, and could appear as a threat, but Chicago’s revamped front seven should be good enough to stop Houston’s ground attack.
