The Chicago Bears snapped a losing streak and can now find redemption
If you told me the Chicago Bears were going to win by more than four touchdowns, I would have called you crazy. They definitely surprised me but let’s slow down a little bit.
The Bears played a Houston team without their top two receivers, Brandon Cooks and Will Fuller. They also were missing David Johnson and a couple of other key players. Not only that, but Houston’s defense is ranked the second-worst in the entire NFL.
I was happy for Mitch Trubisky and it was good to see him beat Watson. I wasn’t the biggest fan of DeShaun Watson coming out of college but what he’s doing this year with minimal talent around him is impressive. Watson’s top weapons against the Chicago Bears had only combined for about 1,144 yards going into the game. Those ‘top’ guys were Jordan Atkins (285), Keke Coutee (179), Darren Fells (275), and Duke Johnson (405).
I personally can’t stand when someone rips an NFL team and say they have nobody. They’re all professional athletes and play in the highest-ranked football league in the world. With that being said, the Texans on paper were nowhere near as talented as the Chicago Bears going into this game. Allen Robinson (1,027) has almost as many yards as those 4 guys combined.
A win is a win and Trubisky deserved it, but don’t fall for the “Bears are back” mentality. At least not yet. This week against the Vikings is the make or break for this Bears team. It will be a close game but if the Chicago Bears want any shot to make the playoffs, it’s a must-win for them.
