The Houston Texans kept taking the ball away from the Chicago Bears. Then, they took their quarterback out of the game.
Arian Foster finished with 102 yards rushing and a touchdown catch, and the Houston Texans intercepted Jay Cutler twice before knocking him out of the game with a concussion on their way to a 13-6 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.
In a showdown between two of the NFL's best teams, the Texans (8-1) beat the Bears (7-2) at their own game. They came away with four takeaways and Tim Dobbins delivered the biggest blow when he drove his helmet into Cutler late in the second quarter.
Foster was the only reliable offensive weapon on either side, particularly in the first 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 Texans did just enough, and now, they're tied with Atlanta for the league's best record after the Falcons wer...
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s déjà vu all over again for Chicago Bears fans in 2012. The Chicago Bears went on a long winning streak which had people talking about them as a top team in the NFL, just like last season. Now Jay Cutler is hurt, just like last season. The question now is whether or not Cutler will miss extended time, and how Jason Campbell will perform in his absence.
It could be seen...
Jay Cutler left the game against Houston at halftime having also been diagnosed with a concussion, but, for me the issue poses a bigger question than whether or not Jason Campbell can do enough to lead the Bears to victory (I'd suggest it just got quite a bit harder for them). The question is why wasn't a concussion test administered on Cutler before he went to the locker...

The constant rain has turned this Sunday Night Football game between the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears into an utter slop fest. But even then it’s not without its big plays.Tim Dobbins made a play to get after Jay Cutler and unfortunately for Cutler, despite absorbing a massive hit, it was all for nothing. Cutler had barely crossed the line of scrimmage, making the pass...
Coach Lovie Smith says the Chicago Bears properly handled quarterback Jay Cutler's concussion on Sunday night.
Smith says trainers immediately examined Cutler during a replay review after he took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Houston's Tim Dobbins late in the second quarter of a 13-6 loss to the Texans.
He says Cutler showed no symptoms of a concussion immediately after the...
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has left Chicago's game against the Houston Texans because of a concussion.
A scrambling Cutler took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Tim Dobbins after unleashing a pass on third down at midfield late in the first half Sunday night.
There were offsetting penalties on the play. Cutler got called for an illegal forward pass because he was beyond the line...
This was system failure, maybe system overload for the NFL. You get a big game like Sunday night, Houston at Chicago, and hope to see statements made, questions answered.
We got statements, all right. When Houston linebacker Tim Dobbins cheap-shotted Jay Cutler -- in the officials' opinion -- by going helmet-to-helmet after Cutler had thrown a pass, Dobbins was allowed to stay...
Late in the second quarter on Sunday night, with the Chicago Bears down 10-3 to the Houston Texans, Jay Cutler stepped out of the pocket and eventually crossed the line of scrimmage to make a pass to Devin Hester. The play would be called back, and a review of whether Cutler stepped over the line would ensue.
Bears fans everywhere would also soon suffer from scary memories of...
The Chicago Bears are expected to sign quarterback Josh McCown with Jay Cutler's status in doubt because of a concussion, ESPN Chicago reported Monday. Cutler sustained a concussion after taking a hard hit during the Bears' 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday night. Jason Campbell replaced Cutler for the second half of the game. The Bears will need another backup...
Jay Cutler suffered a concussion and didn't return in the loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday night and backup Jason Campbell could only muster a field goal in relief. However the biggest exposure for the Bears in this game may didn't come from the QB position, rather the offensive coordinator.
Mike Tice is learning on the job and he's not progressing from...
I know why you’re here.
Week 10 has created so many question marks for teams heading in to Week 11. The biggest of all being at the quarterback position with injuries to the dominant Jay Cutler, Alex Smith, Ben Roethlisberger, and Michael Vick.
