Houston won its first challenge of the season in the fourth quarter, breaking an 0-for-4 streak. With the Texans clinging to a seven-point lead, officials ruled that Slaton fumbled the ball with 6:37 remaining, and Danieal Manning recovered it for the Bears. But after a closer look, the call was overturned following a referee ruling that Slaton was down before the ball squirted out.
