The Cowboys offense continues to have trouble getting going against the Bears, but Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant has found his way to the end zone.
Bryant took a Brad Maynard punt 62 yards for a touchdown with just under three minutes to play in the first quarter to give the home team a 7-3 lead at Cowboys Stadium. Bryant was all but untouched on the return as he only needed to juke Maynard after a good block by Leon Williams. Bryant flashed all the speed that made him a star at Oklahoma State and a first round pick in April.
The Bears didn’t wait long to answer. The Cowboys tried a short kickoff which gave the Bears the ball on the 42-yard-line and Jay Cutler made them pay. He completed a pass to Devin Hester for 19 yards and then found Greg Olsen for 39 yards and a touchdown to put the Bears back in the lead.
Their attempt to remain there will be hampered by the departure of left tackle Chris Williams. He left the game with a hamstring injury and reports from the scene have him out for the remainder of the contest.
