3 takeaways from the Texans blowout loss to the Bears
The Houston Texans suffered their worst loss of the season Sunday, getting blown out by the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, 36-7. Run defense poundedThe Texans’ defense struggled from the first play with David Montgomery bursting through for 80 yards and a touchdown. From there, the Bears used the threat of the run more than the run, hitting short passes off play-action. Mitch Trubisky, the maligned and oft-benched Bears quarterback, outplayed Watson and helped the Bears run up 30 points by halftime. The Texans owned the second-worst run defense in the NFL heading into the game, and it is not improving.
