Two teams who played like turkey’s last Thursday on Thanksgiving will meet up this Thursday when the Dallas Cowboys travel to take on the Chicago Bears.
After putting together a two game win streak the Bears (5-7) offered little resistance to the Lions on Thanksgiving. Meanwhile in Dallas the Cowboys (8-4) were humiliated by the Eagles as they fell outside of the playoff picture.
The Bears defense offered no solution to stopping the Lions passing attack something the Cowboys will try to take advantage of in this one after they failed to get much going offensively themselves. If the Cowboys are to win this one they will need Dez Bryant and Jason Witten to show up. Another thing the Cowboys will need is a capable offensive line. They offered Tony Romo little protection last week.
Coverage of Thursday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears will air on the NFL Network beginning at 8:25 pm ET from Soldier Field in Chicago, IL.
The Odds: The Cowboys enter this game as a 3.5 point favorite against the Bears. The over/under for this contest is 51.5 total points.
Weather reports have the temperate at game time in the low-30s something that will be a concern for the Cowboys. There is a chance of rain in this one but it is small. The bigger concern is that the Cowboys are a mere 12-17 with Tony Romo as their quarterback in December.
Worse for the Cowboys is that they have lost their last three games against the Bears with the last two being blowout losses.
Can the Cowboys get back in the win column in this one or does their season spiral completely out of control with a loss to the Bears?
