Cowboys, Bears offenses are hot in cold Chicago

It’s a cold Monday night in Chicago, but both offenses are heating up.

Dallas got the game started with a 12-play, 75-yard drive that included some big running by DeMarco Murray and ended with a two-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Dez Bryant. It was a great drive that looked like it was going to start a long night for the Bears.

But Chicago’s offense came right back with a 12-play drive of its own, covering 78 yards and culminating with a four-yard touchdown pass from Josh McCown to Earl Bennett.

And after holding the Cowboys’ offense, the Bears got the ball again and marched down the field on a 10-play, 65-yard drive that ended with McCown leaping into the end zone at the end of a seven-yard run.

Much like we saw on Sunday, there’s a lot of good football being played in the cold.
