At 5-2, the Dallas Cowboys are ready to host the Chicago Bears at AT&T Stadium in Week 8 of the 2022 NFL Season. Chicago is coming off a huge win on Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots and is now sitting at 3-4.
Even with the win, they have yet to score a victory over a team that boasts a winning record and are coming in with one fewer day of rest compared to Dallas since they did play on Monday. Let’s dive into the game and look at five reasons to be confident that the home team will secure a win.
5 reasons the Cowboys will beat the Chicago Bears in Week 8
5. Monday was an anomaly
It was quite the shocker to see the Bears drop 33-points on the Patriots after the New England defense had surrendered just 15 in their two previous games combined. That stretch included shutting out the Detroit Lions who had a highly-ranked offense as well as holding the Cleveland Browns — who are a mess on defense but have also been very good on offense — to 15.
Yet somehow, the offensively-challenged Bears suddenly couldn’t be stopped as they had 243 yards on the ground, scored three touchdowns, and nailed four field goals. Most of the offense was courtesy of Justin Fields, who had 82 yards and a touchdown.
As impressive as that night was, this was the anomaly. Overall, this is still a very poor offense without many weapons. Putting them against a Dallas defense that’s been lights out should lead to a win for the Cowboys.
