FOSTER AND THE TEXANS BEAT THE BEARS
Wed, 14 Nov 2012 01:30 AM EST

The Texans created turnovers and played solid defense to beat the Bears at their own game.

The real question now for coach Lovie Smith and the Bears is how long will they be without QB Jay Cutler.

Arian Foster finished with 102 yards rushing and a touchdown catch and the Houston Texans intercepted Cutler twice before knocking him out of the game with a concussion on their way to a 13-6 victory.

That injury was the biggest development on a night when the Houston Texans prevailed in a showdown between 2 of the NFL’s best teams.

Cutler took a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the 2nd quarter from Tim Dobbins, and Coach Lovie Smith asserted, started experiencing symptoms at halftime.

”He took lots of hits, more than he needed to take,” Smith announced.

Will Cutler be available next Monday night at San Francisco 49ers?

”We’re hopeful, but you cannot go that far,” Smith asserted. ”We just know he had symptoms, which started clearing up after the half. When a guy doesn’t finish the game, you’ve just got to go with that right now.”

It is a better night for the Houston Texans.

”I think we showed them we will be able to win any game, any situation, any time, any place, tough weather conditions, troublesome place on the road, a good football team,” defensive lineman J.J. Watt said. ”We won, so say what you want.”

The Houston Texans (8-1) had 4 takeaways against a team that came in with a plus-16 turnover differential, and Dobbins delivered the most important blow when he drove his helmet into Cutler late in 2nd quarter.

Foster was the sole reliable offensive option on both sides, especially in the 1st half when he ran for 85 yards and made a sprawling catch for a 2-yard touchdown to put Houston ahead 10-3.

Otherwise, neither team got much going on a soggy night. The Houston Texans were outgained 249-215, but they actually did just enough to come away with the win. Now they’re tied with Atlanta for the league’s best record after the Atlanta Falcons were upset by New Orleans Saints.

”It’s huge for us, we were 7-1 going in, to come out 8-1 in a hostile place, given the weather and the team we were playing, that is a tough group to go against,” said Matt Schaub, who threw for just 95 yards and was picked off twice by Tim Jennings.

Andre Johnson, Schaub’s top target, had just 4 catches for 35 yards with Charles Tillman on him. Former Bear Danieal Manning helped set the tone, causing a fumble by Kellen Davis on Chicago’s 1st play from scrimmage and picking off Cutler later on in the 1st quarter. Football lines

Cutler finished just 7 of 14 passes for 40 yards with 2 interceptions in the 1st half and was seen in street clothes after the game being driving off on a cart by team officials. Jason Campbell threw for 94 yards in the 2nd half.

”You never want to lose anybody, particularly our starting quarterback,” receiver Brandon Marshall expounded. ”He is our leader; he is the heart and soul of our offense so we certainly want him to have a quick, speedy recovery.
