Chicago Bears’ Receivers Should Abuse Dallas Cowboys’ Passing Defense

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears are probably chomping at the bit. They see the 31st ranked passing defense in the Dallas Cowboys‘ secondary. The Cowboys simply haven’t been able to stop anyone through the air.

To make matters worse for the Cowboys, the Bears happen to feature the most fearsome, physical duo of receivers in the league. We all know what Brandon Marshall can do; he is a proven commodity in the league who is a physical beast and touchdown catching machine.

The emergence of Alshon Jeffery as a stud has really put the Bears’ passing attack over the top. Jeffery has simply been a monster the past few weeks; he set franchise records last week with 15 catches and a whopping 249 yards.

This wasn’t his first 200 yard game of the season, as secondaries have been helpless to defend the physically dominant second year receiver. Jeffery, in his second year, is already over 1,000 yards and looks to add to his total in a big way on Monday night.

The Bears should be able to score points in bunches on this sorry Cowboys defense. Whether it is Josh McCown or Jay Cutler at quarterback should not matter much. The fact is the passing game should thrive with these two talents against a weak back four.

Tony Romo and the Cowboys’ offense will have their work cut out for them in Chicago. I am guessing they will be playing keep up and won’t be getting any favors from the defense. This will be a good, old fashioned shoot out.

Final prediction? 41-33 Bears.
