MNF: Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys Preview, Point Spread, and Prediction

The Bears and Cowboys are both coming off of wins last week —  the Bears defeated the Rams, while the Cowboys took care of the Bucs — which improved their respective records to 2-1.

This game will be much tougher for both teams than their games last week.

Chicago Bears

The Bears have been successful thus far with a record of 2-1, but they have not played the toughest competition in their wins. They defeated the Colts in Week 1, and as mentioned above beat the Rams last week. Week 2 was their slip-up when they only scored ten points against the Packers.

Next week is Jacksonville, which should be a win, but they can not overlook this game in Dallas.

Jay Cutler only has three passing touchdowns on the year, and that number will likely stay the same after tonight’s game. Dallas only allows 137 yards on average in the passing game, so the running backs for Chicago will have to step up.

The offseason addition of Michael Bush has helped out the Bears thus far, as he has nearly double the carries as Matt Forte does this season. Bush already has three touchdowns on the year to Forte’s one. Bush and Forte (if he plays, as he’s a game-time decision) must combine for at least 100 yards in this game just to give the offense a chance against Dallas’s tough defense.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys also lost their Week 2 game, which was against Seattle. They won a low scoring 16-10 affair last week against Tampa Bay, which puts them .5 games back in the NFC East behind Philadelphia.

Miles Austin and Kevin Ogletree have been Tony Romo’s favorite targets this season, as both have two touchdown receptions on the year. Dez Bryant has double-digits in catches, but he has yet to record a touchdown.

In the running game, it will be up to DeMarco Murray to carry the entire load. He has all but 17 of the 230 total team rushing yards for the Cowboys this season. The Bears have one of the top overall defenses in the league, so Murray, just like Bush and Forte, must be able to help out Jay Cutler.

Bears-Cowboys Prediction

Although it may be proclaimed that “Jay Cutler Dominates,” the Bears are too inconsistent thus far to pick in this game.

Cowboys 24 | Bears 17
