Cowboys vs. Bears: What Time, TV Channel & Preview

The beginning of the 2016 season has been a tale of two cities and two stories which will come together on Sunday night as the Dallas Cowboys host the Chicago Bears. Dallas is going with a rookie quarterback while Tony Romo is hurt while Chicago is facing the possibility of losing Jay Cutler to a thumb injury for multiple weeks. The two teams appear to be going on very different paths moving forward which doesn’t seem good for Chicago and much better in Dallas. Here is a look at the matchup.

The Bears lost 29-14 to the Philadelphia Eagles and have a short week to battle back while under the primetime lights again. Cutler has thrown for 378 yards and a touchdown while his replacement in Brian Hoyer threw for 78 yards on 9-for-12 passing Monday night. Alshon Jeffery is the key receiver with his nine catches for 201 yards while Jeremy Langford is playing well at running back with 85 rushing yards and two touchdowns. This may be up to the defense to hold down Dallas enough for the Bears to have a chance. If they can’t slow down the Cowboys rookies, it may be another long night for Chicago.

The Cowboys won 27-23 on the road against the Washington Redskins in Week 2 to improve to 1-1 for the season. There has been a lot to like about rookie Dak Prescott at quarterback who has 519 yards passing so far for the year. Ezekiel Elliott has carried the ball 41 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks while Cole Beasley is leading the Cowboys in receptions with 13 for 140 yards. Dez Bryant is still dangerous and could have a huge night against a weak Bears secondary. The Dallas defense has been very good so far in 2016 and if Hoyer is the quarterback could be in line for a shutout.
