Bears Go Over Cowboys

The Chicago Bears were the underdogs heading into Jerry Jones Palace in Texas. The Dallas Cowboys and the Bears were both 2-1 heading into this ballgame.  According to Sportsbetting.com the Cowboys has the advantage with.  The Cowboys moneyline was -175 straight up to the bears +155.

The Bears over came the odds and made some risky betters some money as they went over the Cowboys.  It was not just a simply victory for the Bears, it was a decisive victory with the score 34-18.  The Bears move their win-loss record to 3-1, tying them with the unlikely division leader, the Minnesota Vikings for supremacy of the NFC North.

The biggest story of the night is perhaps Jay Cutler’s performance as a quarterback and leader of the team.

For the first time this season I felt like Cutler was in control of the ball game and in control of his team.

This was also reflected in his stats.  He put up some of the best numbers of his career.  He had 275 passing yards with two touchdowns,a  75 percent completion rating and a passer rating at just over 140.

I doubt Cutler’s maturity or lack of it issues are behind him with one solid game, but he did show that he can still perform the the caliber Chicago fans expect him to.

It was Tony Romo of the Cowboys who looked like the interception prone lack luster quarterback that Cutler often gets criticized for being.  He threw five interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns.  He closed out the game with a shameful 60.1 passer rating.

Romo was 31-of-43. He threw for 307 yards and had a whopping five interceptions.

The Cowboys now fall back to 2-2.  Is this the beginning of another mediocre Cowboys season?

For a team that consistently has overwhelmingly good odds to win the Super Bowl at the start of season and moneylines consistently pegging them as the favorites they certainly do under perform.

Word around the rumor mill is that Matt Forte will be returning to the Bears in Week 5.  With the return of Forte and this big win it is going to take a lot to slow the wave of momentum that the Bears will be riding into Week 5.  The Jacksonville Jaguars will certainly have their hands full this Sunday.

The Cowboys will have a bye week so they will have some time to regroup from this disappointing loss.
