The biggest game of Week 10 will pit the 7-1 Houston Texans against the 7-1 Chicago Bears. Many national pundits feel these are the two best teams in football right now, and it'll be interesting to see how the league's two best defenses fare against two offenses with talented playmakers.
The Texans rank in the top five in terms of scoring defense, pass defense and rush defense. Look for them to mix up their coverage schemes and bring plenty of blitzes against Chicago's shaky offensive line. In terms of offense, it will be interesting to see how Arian Foster fares against a rush defense surrendering just 88 yards to their opponent each week.
As for the Bears, they become a very difficult team to beat when Jay Cutler does not turn the ball over. If he's able to manage the game and keep the ball out of hands of Houston's secondary, the Bears could put up some points in front of a raucous home crowd. If Cutler reverts to old habits and starts giving the ball up for grabs though, it could be a long night in the Windy City.
