Cowboys (2-0) vs. Bears (1-1), Sunday September 23, 7:15 PM CT on NBC
Week 3 Preview:
The Dallas Cowboys look to improve to 3-0 when they invade Soldier field in Chicago to play the Chicago Bears.
The Cowboys’ offense, which has scored a league-best 82 points so far this year, looks to keep that up this week. It will be a stern test for Romo and the Cowboys though, as Chicago has only allowed 24 points this season. This will be a great match-up between the Dallas offense and Chicago defense. Be sure to keep an eye on that.
I wouldn’t really be too worried about the Bears’ offense. It’s just not very good and really doesn’t have any potential to be. They should count on the running game against Dallas’ ‘D’ though. Despite allowing 6 passing TD’s this year, the Cowboys have yet to allow a rushing TD this year.
This could prove to be a huge game in the long run, possibly being the tiebreaker that determines who has home field advantage in the playoffs throughout in the NFC or who gets the 2nd seed and a bye in the 1st round. I think that many people seem to overlook this because of the Cowboys signing of DT Tank Johnson.
WR Terry Glenn (knee) and LB Greg Ellis (achilles) are still out. CB Terence Newman (heel) and LB Kevin Burnett (ankle) are probable.
Sorry this is up a little late. I had a funeral to go to on Saturday. Time to get your rifles out! We’re goin bear huntin’!
