NFL Week 14: Beleaguered Bears Battle Crashing Cowboys
Dallas looks to avoid another doomsday December
Fans of the Cowboys are hoping another doomsday December isn't on the horizon as Dallas hasn't posted a winning record in the final month of the NFL regular season since 1996. Over the past 17 years, the Cowboys are 25-43 in December including their 1-3 playoff race collapse last season. Following a hot 6-1 start the Cowboys have cooled considerably as they are on a 2-3 run and were just blown out 33-10 by the Eagles at home on Thanksgiving Day. Dallas is the lone remaining team without a road loss this season as they are 5-0 heading into the Windy City. While the 'Boys aren't as bad as they looked ten days ago, they aren't as good as their early season start indicates either as cracks are beginning to show on both sides of the ball.
Chicago reverts back to Bad News Bears on Thanksgiving Day
Following back to back wins, albeit over the combined 7-17 Vikings and Buccaneers, Chicago (5-7) reverted back to their losing ways as they were trounced 34-17 on Thanksgiving Thursday in Detroit. The final count is flattering as the Bears received a holiday gift when Lions QB Matthew Stafford fumbled on the 5-yard line and Chicago turned it into a TD two plays later. Cowboys QB Tony Romo looks to rebound from a rough outing against the Eagles and should do so versus the Bears defense that's tied (Jets) for the league lead with 27 TD passes allowed. During their last four losses Chicago has been outscored by a combined 167-68 margin. Bears vs Cowboys Prediction: With a 32° game time temperature in the forecast, it's going to be a frosty night at Soldier Field but a lack of precipitation will lessen the weather's effect here. Despite the huge game total posted online, we are backing the OVER as we don't expect much defense from either team. We also see a Dallas victory so tie the Cowboys money line to the OVER with a 200 unit parlay.
