HOUSTON — The Houston Texans are about to get the ultimate test in holding onto the ball.

The Texans (7-1) have gone two games without a turnover and have committed the fewest (6) of any team heading into Sunday's night's showdown on the road against Chicago (7-1).

The Bears, meanwhile, lead the league in takeaways (28) and they're the first team to return seven interceptions for touchdowns through their first eight games of a season.

Some nasty weather could add to the challenge for the Texans, who've lost only one fumble all season. The forecast for kickoff time in Chicago calls for rain, temperatures in the 30s and winds gusting around 13-15 mph.
