BEARS DEFEATED COWBOYS BY A SCORE OF 34-18
Thu, 04 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo finished 31 of 43 passes for 307 yards against the Bears, figures that in many games would lead his team to a win.

Nevertheless victories are almost impossible to come by when the quarterback throws 5 interceptions, which Romo did.

Romo’s career-worst pick total doomed Dallas to a 34-18 loss to the Chicago Bears at Cowboys Stadium.

Bears (3-1) returned 2 interceptions for touchdowns in winning its 2nd consecutive game to remain tied with Minnesota on top of the NFC North.

Dallas Cowboys (2-2) has scored just 4 touchdowns in the past 3 weeks.

“We have to keep figuring a way to execute better,” Romo announced. “There are simple things sometime. The No. 1 factor is looking after the football. I know that. We preach it to the guys every day. It was obviously frustrating when I was the person that turned it over tonight.”

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler finished 18-for-24 for 275 yards and 2 touchdowns. Brandon Marshall had 7 receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Cutler came out firing to start the 2nd half, moving the visitors 75 yards in just 5 plays to put Bears on top 17-7. Four of those plays were completions, including a 34-yard touchdown to Devin Hester.

Under pressure on the scoring play, Cutler bought enough time to terrace it down the middle of the field. Hester made a diving catch falling over the goal line. The play was reviewed, as it appeared the ball might have hit the ground, but the TD call was confirmed.

“We started off a touch slow,” Cutler related. “The defense put us in some great spots.”

Promising Dallas scoring chances on 2 possessions in 3rd quarter with the game still in reach finished with Romo interceptions, including one that Chicago LB Lance Briggs returned 74 yards for a touchdown.

Instead of getting inside a score, Dallas was down 24-7 with 6:11 left in the 3rd. Football betting lines

“Just outstanding play by our defense,” Bears Coach Lovie Smith said, “seems like everyone had a say. Those were all good plays.”

Dallas’ backup quarterback Kyle Orton finished 9 of 10 passes, including a 5-yard TD pass to Jason Witten in the game’s final minute.

Chicago took a 10-7 lead into halftime, with all of its points coming during a 95-second stretch late in the second quarter. The Bears’ 1st touchdown came when cornerback Charles Tillman took back an interception 25 yards.

The game opened with 5 successive punts, as neither team could generate much offense. Dallas appeared to have something going on its first drive with 3 first downs before stalling in Chicago territory. The Bears managed only 44 yards on their first 2 possessions.

Chicago’s 3rd drive showed improvement. Starting at their own 6-yard line after a Dallas punt, the Bears drove 69 yards in 13 plays over seven minutes. Matt Forte picked up 33 yards on the ground, and kicker Robbie Gould ended the march with a 43-yard field for a 3-0 Chicago lead.
