In Week 3 of 2022, AFC South will face NFC North. NFL Season.
The Houston Texans head north to face the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.
The Texans come into this matchup after a 20-20 draw with the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 and a low-scoring incident with the Denver Broncos in Week 2. Defense was tough., However, the offense failed to put a point on the board in the fourth quarter. If Davis Mills continues to learn on the job and can pull something together, this team could surprise some people.
The Bears entered the matchup 1-1, losing to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North Division. Like the Texans, the Bears’ defense has been playing great in spurts, and last week he held the Packers to 3 points in the second half. But what to expect from a young quarterback like Justin Fields is another struggling offense. Hopefully he continues to make progress and hopefully get things back on track this weekend.

How many touchdowns this time? two? three?
Chicago’s offense is so bad right now that the Bears aren’t even trying to throw a football. Even if offensive coordinator Luke Getzie decides to “unleash” Justin Fields, it doesn’t help the “over” crowd much, as Fields is inaccurate and his weapon is useless.
One of the things the Bears are doing well is that head coach Matt Everfuls clearly knows how to design a defensive game plan. Chicago should do well against Houston’s Davis He Mills.
Always willing to short attacks from Fields and Mills.
