Chicago Bears vs Dallas Cowboys: Monday Night Football Pre-Party Open Thread

Your gathering place for tonight's Bears/Cowboys matchup, as well as our pre-game stream! Join us as we break down the game from all angles!

Gameday has arrived. After yesterday's Lions loss to the Eagles, the Bears have a chance to make up some of the ground they lost by beating the Dallas Cowboys on Mike Ditka Day - also known as the day Mike Ditka's jersey number will be retired by the Bears.

The Cowboys come in now having to win to match the Eagles after their win against the Lions, and they come in both with a strong running back in DeMarco Murray as well as a passing attack that gets the most attention on that roster.

The Bears come in having to win to tie the Lions in record (the Lions still hold the tiebreaker), and they come in with a defense that's been porous against the run, to say the least.

There's a lot to talk about, and we're going to do our pre-game stream for another hour tonight. Join myself and Sam Householder as we break down the game and what the outcome of this means for the Bears going forward. As usual, any comments, questions, or anything else can be put in the comments here (preferred method), on my Twitch channel over at, or on Twitter at @SJS_illini and @SamHouseholder.
