Brian Urlacher Congratulates The Texans On Picking Off Jay Cutler: Sunday Night Football, In One GIF

Houston 13, Chicago 6: It was wet and miserable tonight at Soldier Field, and the score reflected it. The game wasn't altogether boring—the Bears had a chance to tie or win on their last possession—but they did not. Six turnovers later (four the Bears, two for the Texans) and what this game will be remembered for, if anything, is probably the concussion Jay Cutler suffered late in the second quarter—the sixth of his career, and arguably one that ought to have gotten him pulled from the game a lot sooner. We got to see plenty of Jason Campbell though, and now Chicago fans get to see the grim reality beneath their clamoring for Cutler's job: more Jason Campbell.

And, of course, the game might be remembered for the weirdness above: Danieal Manning, a former Chicago Bear that defected to the Texans the offseason before last, picked off Jay Cutler in the first quarter, and Brian Urlacher just couldn't contain his excitement for his old teammate. That Urlacher—he's a hell of a gamer.
