The Chicago Bears dominated the Dallas Cowboys in their NFC showdown on Monday Night Football. The Bears defense played like a unit that could lead the team on a Super Bowl run and the performance led to Chicago advancing to 3-1 after their 34-18 shellacking of the Cowboys. All three of the Bears wins have come by at least 17 points.
For the Cowboys, things did not go as planned.
Despite a 300 yard passing game by Tony Romo and 100 yard receiving performance by Dez Bryant, the offense left a lot to be desired. Romo had one of the worst statistical performances of his career by throwing five interceptions, while Bryant had three crucial drops that had fans ignoring the big plays he made throughout the game.
Dallas has fallen to 2-2 and has looked like two completely different teams during their wins and losses.
In wins over the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team has put together a solid all-around performance that led people to believe they may have turned the corner as a true contender. In their losses to the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears, the team has looked horrendous.
The Cowboys will look to regroup next week during their bye week, while Chicago looks to advance to 4-1 with a win against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
