Cowboys (8-4) @ Bears (5-7)

Both teams played last Thursday and get a second straight Thursday kickoff. Chicago started strong in Detroit but couldn’t keep up with the Lions for four quarters; further solidifying their inferiority in the NFC this year. Given, they went up against one of the league’s best defenses and get a bit of a softer unit at home with the Cowboys.

Dallas needs to regroup after being dismantled by Philly on their own turf. It’s gonna be chilly up in Chicago and the Cowboys will have to rely upon their offensive line to pull this one out. Last week was really the first time we’ve seen that stout unit fall apart; allowing four sacks of Tony Romo. The strength of Chicago’s defense is its front seven so that’ll be a matchup to watch. In the end, I’ll take the consistency of the Dallas offense over the home-field advantage for Chicago.

DAL 23, CHI 17
