Projecting Cowboys’ Player Performances vs Bears
At DallasCowboys.com, I posted another fantasy football-esque look at the Cowboys’ Monday night matchup with the Bears.
Projected Stat Lines
Tony Romo: 22-for-35, 250 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
Jason Witten: 3 receptions, 35 yards
Dez Bryant: 4 receptions, 65 yards, TD
Miles Austin: 5 receptions, 80 yards
DeMarco Murray: 20 carries, 80 yards, 3 receptions, 20 yards
This game has all the makings of yet another defensive battle for the Cowboys. Although I’m generally a proponent of passing early and often, I think Dallas needs to give Murray a little more attention on Monday night.
In low-scoring games, the impact of a few big plays is monumental. Even if Murray isn’t killing Chicago on the ground, hammering the Bears with the run could set up a well-timed deep play-action look or two later in the game. In what could easily be a 21-17-type of contest, generating a quick score would be extremely valuable for either club, even more so than usual.
