Bears Blow Away Cowboys
(Chicago, IL) -- Josh McCown threw for 348 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Bears in a 45-28 blowout win over the Cowboys at Soldier Field on "Monday Night Football." McCown hit Brandon Marshall for six catches and 100 yards while tossing TDs to Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte, Earl Bennett and Michael Bush. The Bears scored on every offensive possession except for their final one, which came with just seconds left in the game. Forte added 102 yards on the ground as Chicago climbed to 7-6 and into a tie with the Lions atop the NFC North. DeMarco Murray ran for 146 yards on just 18 carries for Dallas while Tony Romo threw for 104 yards and three touchdowns. The 'Boys dipped to 7-and-6 and failed to keep pace with the 8-and-5 Eagles for the NFC East lead.
Bears Honor Ditka At Halftime
(Chicago, IL) -- The Bears honored former player and coach Mike Ditka at halftime of last night's game. Chicago retired Ditka's number-89 during a ceremony. Ditka was the first tight end enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and led the Bears to the 1985 Super Bowl as a coach.
Rams' Austin Taking It Easy
(Earth City, MO) -- Rams' rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin is listed as day-to-day after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
