Many folks picked the Dallas Cowboys to beat the Chicago Bears in Week 8, but I doubt anyone thought it’d be a shootout. The two teams combined for 78 points in this high-scoring affair, with the Cowboys accounting for 49 of them, 28 in the first half. But the Bears showed plenty of fight, whittling the 28-7 deficit down to a one-score game in the third quarter before losing control after that.
Defensively speaking, this was a game to forget. There’s little good to be said about the defense anytime they give up nearly 50 points. They’re in the doghouse this week. But we still have plenty of studs to recognize from the game, so let’s get to it.
