As the Dallas Cowboys enter a brutally cold Soldier Field on Monday night, the hosting Bears will await with a unique passion and fire boiling through their veins.

Early weather forecasts expect the temperature to reach single digits just after kickoff, with an additional double-digit wind as icing on top.  This certainly will be an ugly, freezing atmosphere surrounding a very physical ballgame.

The Cowboys must walk in ready to match a relentless Bears’ effort.  The urgency surrounding this game for Chicago is monumental.  In addition, there are talented, highly motivated ex-Cowboys littering the field in black and red.

There will also be a solid QB seeking to cement his starting role and prove something for personal reasons, regardless of which one opens the show.

Let’s take a closer look at each of those relevant aspects, and the intense battle awaiting the men in silver and blue.
