Lovie Smith's Houston Texans continue searching for their first victory of the 2022 NFL regular season when they travel to face Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears.
The Bears failed to get past the Green Bay Packers in a tough road test and now look to take advantage of a rebuilding Texans squad at home. But can Davis Mills, Dameon Pierce and Houston put a mark in the win column this weekend? The game is set to kick off Sunday at 1 p.m. ET from Solider Field.

Lorenzo Reyes: Texans 14, Bears 13
I’m not as confident taking Houston on the moneyline, but I do think they at least cover — in part because Chicago simply has not shown that it can craft an efficient and productive offense that suits Justin Fields’ skill set.
Safid Deen: Bears 20, Texans 17
Justin Fields regroups after a poor outing in Green Bay with his second road win of the season. He’ll have help from running backs David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert in this one, while coach Lovie Smith and the Texans fall to 0-2-1 this season.
Lance Pugmire: Bears 23, Texans 10
In the second-lowest total on Tipico Sportsbook’s board (40.5), expect the re-energized Bears to outclass Houston. Houston’s offense has been remarkably quiet, especially on the ground.
Jarrett Bell: Texans 20, Bears 19
Nate Davis: Texans 17, Bears 16
Tyler Dragon: Bears 23, Texans 20
