Texans vs. Bears: Point spread, over/under for Week 3

·2 min read

The Houston Texans offense failed to get their first full win of the 2022 season against the Denver Broncos. The Texans at 0-1-1 have an opportunity to put all ones across their record when they take on the Chicago Bears Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time from Soldier Field.

The Texans generated 233 yards total offense in their 16-9 loss at Denver, which would otherwise be considered an outlier if not for the fact Houston had 299 yards total offense through five periods on Opening Day against the Indianapolis Colts. Houston’s offense being unable to move the football may be a trend.

Chicago had some success in their first win as the executed a fourth quarter comeback in the slop against the San Francisco 49ers. However, they were patsy as always to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football at Lambeau Field in Week 2. Rookie coach Matt Eberflus will be looking to get Chicago back above .500 with a victory.
