Both teams come into this game with 2-1 records, and although the Cowboys will be favorites to gain the win, the Bears will also fancy their chances if they can exploit some of the weaknesses the Cowboys have shown over the first three games of the season.
This match up could well come down to a defensive battle between the teams. Dallas has shown it has one of the best defenses in the league through the first three weeks, however, they have had a hugely disappointing offensive unit until now. Coming into this week 4 clash Dallas are ranked 31st in the league offensively with just 15.7 points on average per game.
Tony Romo will be hoping to get back in the saddle tonight after suffering a horrid game against Tampa Bay in week 3. He was sacked four times and was unable to throw any touchdown passes.
Meanwhile the Bears have similar concerns regarding their offensive unit. Quarterback Jay Cutler is suffering more than more throughout the league and has been sacked a massive 11 times already this year, including a shocking seven times when Chicago came up against the Packers. However, it is not only sackings that have haunted Cutler, but simply the pressure being applied to him due to the lack of protection in front of him. He has been pressured to the extent that over three games he has already thrown six interceptions. In comparison he has only managed three touchdown passes.
It is unlikely to get any better on Monday night against the Cowboys, which boasts the best pass defense in the NFL. Dallas has allowed just 137 passing yards per game until now.
However, the Bears will have seen how Marshawn Lynch destroyed the Dallas defense just a few weeks back, claiming 122 yards and scoring a touchdown. Michael Bush will be sure to hlook to exploit that apparent weakness tonight.
