Start: Cowboys Running Back DeMarco Murray
Why: This one is a no-brainer. Murray scored three touchdowns on Thanksgiving against Oakland. The Bears allowed Minnesota Viking’s running back Adrian Peterson to put up 211 rushing yards against them last week. They also allowed the St. Louis Rams to put up 258 yards on the ground and three touchdowns the week before. Statically, the Bears are the worst rushing defense in the league, ranked currently 32nd in rushing yards allowed in the NFL. Finally, it’s going to be a cold, windy game and Solider Field is an open-air stadium. Weather.com predicts it will be a mostly cloudy night with a high of 24 and a low of 12 with a wind of 17 mph coming out of the west. High winds and cold temperatures don’t exactly help the passing game. Expect both teams to pound the rock.
