The Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys are both looking to put disappointing Thanksgiving games behind them as they face each other on Thursday Night Football.
Lance Briggs out for season – Chicago Bears linebacker placed on injured reserve
Lions beat Bears – Detroit Lions feast on Chicago Bears with 34-17 Thanksgiving win
Eagles destroy Cowboys – Philadelphia Eagles dominate Dallas Cowboys, 33-10, on Thanksgiving
The Chicago Bears are hoping to play spoiler on Thursday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys, who are looking to bounce back following a humiliating Thanksgiving loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Bears are also seeking redemption from a Thanksgiving loss after falling to the Detroit Lions, 34-17. Quarterback Jay Cutler threw for 280 yards on 31-of-49 passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Lions.
The running game was practically non-existent as the Bears only rushed for 13 total yards.
Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught nine passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns. He will play against the Cowboys despite nursing a hamstring injury.
For the Cowboys, quarterback Tony Romo struggled against the Eagles as he was held to 199 yards with no touchdown passes and two interceptions on 18-of-29 passing.
Running back DeMarco Murray, who is widely considered an MVP candidate, was also held in check as he rushed for 73 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.
The Cowboys defense is beginning to look like the unit that cost the team games last season, but they should be able to take advantage of a turnover-prone Bears offense.
Prediction: Cowboys 28, Bears 21
