The Bears hosted the Cowboys in a matchup to decide potential playoff seeding and a division title. The Cowboys have struggled throughout the season, with all six of their wins being against teams with losing records. The Bears have struggled in the sense that their offense is underwhelming, as the team entered the season with championship aspirations. Although, the Bears offense has been clicking the past few weeks.

The Cowboys took an early lead when Ezekiel Elliott scored from two yards out. Elliott rushed for 81 of the Cowboys 82 yards for the night and scored two rushing touchdowns. This season has been a down one for Elliott, who is now ranked sixth in rushing yards for the season.

The next two quarters would be a slaughter by the Bears, as the offense scored 24 unanswered points to take a commanding 24-7 lead entering the fourth quarter. Allen Robinson caught two touchdown passes from Mitchell Trubisky in the second quarter. Robinson finished with 48 yards receiving and two touchdowns while Trubisky passed for 244 yards and 3 touchdowns, adding another touchdown on the ground.

The Cowboys finally responded, when Elliott rushed for his second touchdown of the night at the start of the fourth quarter. But the red-hot Bears offense wasn’t done, as Trubisky rushed for a 23-yard touchdown. Not only did he pass for 244 yards, but he rushed 10 times for 63 yards. This is a part of the Bears offense that was utilized properly last year, but not this season. Outside of Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen, Trubisky is one of the best mobile quarterbacks in the league.

Dak Prescott made the game interesting with a 19-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper. Prescott finished with an inefficient 334 yards passing and one touchdown, while Cooper caught six passes for 83 yards and one touchdown.

A Brett Maher field goal for the Cowboys in the final seconds would finish the game with a final score of 31-24. The Bears improve to 7-6 on the season and stay in the Wild Card race. The Cowboys fall to 6-7 and are trying their best to give the NFC East to the Philadelphia Eagles, who are also struggling following their loss to the Miami Dolphins.
