Heading into Week 4 of the NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys are coming off a hard-fought win after defeating Tampa Bay 16-10 in week 3. The Chicago Bears are also coming off a win as well, defeating St. Louis 23-6 last Sunday. In addition, both sit at 2-1 on the year.
That is where both of these teams stand heading into Monday Night Football as the Cowboys will host the Bears in a big NFC showdown.
The one thing Dallas will need to improve upon is their offensive performance from Week 3, especially on the offensive line. Despite getting the win, they allowed quarterback Tony Romo to get sacked four times and did not help matters by committing 13 penalties which included six false starts.
It will not get any easier for Dallas as they will face arguably one of the top defenses in the league where Chicago enters the game ranked 6th in both rushing and pass defense. Not to mention, Chicago also leads the NFL with 14 sacks on the year in just three games.
Chicago should have Matt Forte back in the lineup for Monday night’s matchup after suffering a right ankle sprain. Jay Cutler needs to show improvement as he has led the Bears’ passing attack to a dismal 28th in the league, getting just 186.3 yards per game.
Cutler will have his hands full though as he faces a Dallas defense that ranks 2nd against the pass allowing just 137 yards per game. So expect Forte and Michael Bush to provide most of the offensive firepower for Chicago.
The Cowboys will enter the game as 3 1/2-point favorites in Bovada Sportsbook’s Week 4 Monday Night Football Betting Odds. The OVER/UNDER in points is set at 42. For the season, Chicago is getting 24.7 points per game while Dallas is getting just 15.7.
Coverage for Monday night’s matchup can be seen live on ESPN beginning at 8:30 pm ET.
