Devin Hester, you have company in the “RIDICULOUS!” department.
When I say ALSHON, you say JEFFERY!
This game is playing out very closely to the way I thought it would. The Bears can’t seem to stop the Cowboys from running the ball and the Cowboys can’t stop the Bears receivers.
Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray has 13 carries for 99 yards in the 1st half.
QB Tony Romo is a respectable 8/13 for 71 yards and 2 TDs but has missed some throws.
And DE DeMarcus Ware has been getting good push against RT Jermon Bushrod but has not gotten to the QB yet.
On the other side of the ball; RB Matt Forte has run the ball 8 times for 38 yards and has surpassed the 1000 yard mark for the 4th time in his career.
QB Josh McCown is playing lights out and is 18/23 for 222 yards and 2 TDs. One to “My name is” Earl Bennett and one RIDICULOUS TD to Alshon Jeffery right before half. McCown has also rushed for a TD.
Jeffery has 5 catches for 84 yards and 1TD.
WR Brandon Marshall (remember him) also has 5 catches for 78 yards. Marshall is the 2nd Bears receiver to join the 1000 yard receiving club this season.
This marks the 1st time the Bears have had a 1000+ yard rusher and two 1000+ yard receivers in the same season since 1995.
The Bears are up 24-14 at the half.
Oh, and we get the ball first in the 2nd half.
Right now, I am feeling pretty good!
