Bears vs. Cowboys Prediction: Is it Too Many Points? (NFL Week 8)

Sweatpants Jesus

The 3-4 Chicago Bears, fresh off of a Monday Night win against the Patriots, travel to Dallas to take on the 5-2 Cowboys in a NFC rendezvous.

The Cowboys welcomed back QB Dak Prescott last week after his month long absense with a thumb injury.

He looked healthy, a little rusty, sure, but in control and poised to take the Cowboys back to being the offensive powerhouse we have seen the past few years.

The defense has looked dominating and that doesn’t look like it is going to slow down.

They are disruptive, leading the league in sacks, and causing all types of problems for opposing offenses.

In comes Justin Fields and the Bears to deal with the pesky Cowboys D.

They handled the Patriots defense on MNF with great play calling and they are going to look to do the same on Sunday in Dallas.

While Fields looked impressive Monday Night against the Patriots scrambling and making plays, the Bears offensive line is a problem and will continue to be one all season.

Can Fields and the Bears pull of an upset in big D or will Dak and the Boys handle thier business?

Prediction

This game is pretty sketchy on the surface.

The Bears were 8.5 point dogs last week and won outright, by a lot.

The Cowboys are a better overall team than the Pats, especially offensively, but the Bears and Fields, especially, are hard to prepare for.

I want to wait another week of Dak being back before I can comfortably bet on the Cowboys to win by 10 points.

Give me the Bears with the points here to at least keep things within striking distance in Dallas.

I don’t think they win this game but I think it could be closer than people think.

Too many points.

Give me Da Bears.

Best Bet

Bears +9.5 (-105)
