4 Ways Cowboys Can Beat Bears on Monday Night
At NBC, I published a list of four “DOs” for the Cowboys tonight against the Bears.
Get D.J. Moore on the field.
The Bears’ starting cornerbacks have been magnificent through three games. Teams have been “picking on” 5’9’’ Tim Jennings, much to Chicago’s delight. Jennings has been targeted 27 times, yielding only nine receptions and a 4.9 passer rating. Yeah, 4.9. Meanwhile, opposing quarterbacks have even tested Charles Tillman, throwing his way just five times all season.
Chicago’s nickel cornerback, D.J. Moore, isn’t so stellar. While Jennings and Tillman have combined to allow 4.03 yards-per-attempt, Moore has given up 8.69 YPA. He has also allowed a 69.2 percent completion rate, compared to 43.8 for the Bears’ starting cornerbacks.
