Bears vs Texans: Live updates and open thread

Let’s hope for a fun and exciting game today as the Chicago Bears take on the Houston Texans.

There are plenty of narratives surrounding this game, but the two most important in my opinion are that (1) a Bears win could get them back into serious NFC wildcard talk, and (2) a loss gets them closer to a top 10 draft pick.

Which one are you rooting for?

Have fun and keep it classy in the open thread today!
