Chicago Bears Score and Recap (Week 14): Bears 36, Texans 7 – Bears Dominate, Snap Losing Streak

To say the Bears were struggling during their six-game losing streak would be a massive understatement. They finally managed to take and hold the upper hand against the Houston Texans at a chilly Soldier Field Sunday and took out that several weeks of frustration in a blowout victory.

Why the Bears Won

The offense was balanced, efficient, and had zero turnovers in a refreshing change of pace. At the same time, the defense completely kept the dangerous Deshaun Watson under wraps. (Box score)

Key Moment 

David Montgomery set the tone immediately on the Bears’ first play from scrimmage, breaking an 80-yard touchdown run to put the home team up 7-0.

Stats That Matter

  • Mitch Trubisky had his best game of the season and possibly his career. The beleaguered QB threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns as the play-calling had him moving around while limiting his reads.
  • Montgomery had 155 total yards, 113 of which came on the ground, as his late-season surge continues.
  • Allen Robinson got loose in the secondary for 123 yards and a touchdown.
  • The Bears sacked Watson seven times, including a 2nd quarter safety from Khalil Mack.

Bottom Line

It is probably too late for a playoff run, but it was nice to see a complete team effort by the Bears. Hopefully, they can build on this next week and make things interesting.

Next Up

The Bears look to keep their playoff hopes alive in Minneapolis Week 15. They battle the Vikings Sunday, December 20 at 12:05pm CT on FOX.
