4. Texans Schedule 2020: Week 14 at Chicago Bears (Dec. 13)
Maybe the Bears aren’t getting the proper respect here, but just like with the aforementioned Cleveland Browns, the Chicago Bears are one of those teams where it is tough to realize they had such a poor performance last season.
The quarterback issues with Mitchell Trubisky have set the Bears franchise back a bit, but all-around with Chicago they just never play up to their potential, and it shows in the overall record year after year. The Bears even went out and traded for Nick Foles this offseason to likely be their new starting quarterback, but the Texans are familiar with him as he played for the Jaguars last season.
Remember, the Bears passed on current Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson when they selected Trubisky with the second overall pick back in 2017, and though that decision hasn’t worked out so well for “Da Bears,” the Texans should send Chicago a Christmas card every December for making that decision.
The Bears do have Allen Robinson at wide receiver and we all know about Khalil Mack at linebacker for Chicago, but overall in terms of team vs. team, if Houston plays up to their talent level — especially on offense with receivers like Will Fuller, Randall Cobb, Kenny Stills and Brandin Cooks — the Texans should be able to mark a “W” in the final result of this Week 14 game.
