Talk about a heavyweight bout, the Houston Texans went into Soldier Field and came out with a huge 13-6 win against the Chicago Bears.

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Texans defensive line coach Bill Kollar did not travel home from Chicago with the team because of a possible blood clot.
Kollar missed Sunday night's game against the Bears because of the issue. He was experiencing shortness of breath before the game and a team trainer sent him to the hospital for tests. He wasn't allowed to return to the field.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By KRISTIE RIEKEN AP Sports Writer It wasn't pretty, but the Houston Texans found a way to beat the Bears and escape Chicago tied for the best record in the NFL.
Now the Texans (8-1) are preparing for one of the NFL's worst teams in Jacksonville, focused on improving as they inch closer to their goal of reaching the Super Bowl.
Houston forced three turnovers in the first quarter and Shayne Graham kicked a 20-yard field goal to give the Texans a 3-0 lead over the Chicago Bears through one period at a rainy Soldier Field on Sunday night.
After the Texans went three and out on the opening possession, they got the ball back after former Bears defensive back Danieal Manning jarred the ball loose from tight...
Chicago had one of its worst overall performances in a 13-6 home loss on Sunday night to the Houston Texans, a game in which the offense turned the ball over four times.
The Texans’ second Sunday night appearance of the season earned good enough numbers for NBC.

The Texans (8-1) took four first-half takeaways from the Bears and knocked Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler out of the game with a concussion -- albeit on a hit that was penalized....
There weren't many style points in this one. J.J. Watt wasn't interested in them, anyway. All that mattered was the result, and the Houston Texans will take that along with everything else they took from this game.
Bears star cornerback Charles Tillman is active for Sunday's game against Houston, while Texans tight end Owen Daniels is out because of a back injury.
There was some question about Tillman's status after he told a Chicago radio station he might not be available because his wife, Jackie, is due to give birth to a girl - the couple's fourth child. He later posted on Twitter...
