It wasn't pretty. Bad weather and a hostile Chicago crowd is usually a bad sign, but the Houston Texans put together a gritty defensive perfromance to get the win vs. the Chicago Bears 13-6. Early in the game, we saw yet another QB leave the game with a concussion. Bears QB Jay Cutler joined the 49ers' Alex Smith and the Eagles' Michael Vick to leave the game after taking big hits. The weather played a huge factor in this one, as both teams had a combined 464 yards of total offense. The Texans benefited from four Bears turnovers. Danieal Manning forced a fumble after crushing TE Kellen Davis in the first quarter, and also had an interception. He nearly had another pick later in the game.  The Texans' J.J. Watt on the game: ''I think we showed them we can win any game, any situation, any time, any place, tough weather conditions, tough place on the road, a very good football team,'' he said. ''We won, so say what you want.'' var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
