Offensive spotlight: Khalil Herbert took over the Bears' RB1 duties after David Montgomery exited with an injury. The second-year back from Virginia Tech didn't disappoint. He tallied six explosive runs, eight first-down rushes, 130 ground yards after contact and two rushing scores to cap off an 80.0-plus grade, pending review.
Defensive spotlight: Turnover savant Eddie Jackson was back to his usual tricks for the second time in three weeks. The five-year vet had a forced fumble and an interception, and he didn't allow a catch into his coverage.
Rookie spotlight: Although he put the ball on the ground twice, Texans' back Dameon Pierce handled 20 carries for his biggest rushing workload yet. Pierce accumulated 66 of his 80 total rushing yards after contact, featuring five first-down runs and his first NFL touchdown.
Offensive line spotlight: The Bears’ offensive line allowed multiple sacks for the second time in three weeks. Against the Texans, the unit surrendered nine total pressures — five hurries, two hits and two sacks — on 25 pass-blocking snaps.
