Josh McCown threw for 348 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Bears in a 45-28 blowout win over the Cowboys at a chilly Soldier Field on “Monday Night Football.”
McCown hit Brandon Marshall for six catches and 100 yards while throwing TDs to Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte (FOR-tay), 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-and-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 Cowboys fell to 7-and-6 and failed to keep pace with the 8-and-5 Eagles for the NFC East lead.
The Green Bay Packers will have a better idea tomorrow when the team will get injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers back.
Rodgers still hasn’t been cleared medically to return from the broken left collarbone that has kept him out the last five games.
The 2010 Super Bowl MVP will visit doctors on Wednesday with hopes of being cleared to play.
Rodgers was able to get on the practice field last week, but did not suit up for the Packers’ 22-21 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
