Bears’ Run Offense vs. Cowboys’ Run Defense
Chicago’s running game has yet to get a large amount of carries so far this year. The Bears have run the ball only 18 times in each of the first two games of the season. The Cowboys are currently ranked 13th in the league against the run, but are allowing an average of 4.8 yards per running play (fourth-highest average in NFL). Last week against the Eagles, Chicago had a stint where they were moving the ball fairly easily on the ground. Rookie running back Jordan Howard averaged 7.3 yards on three carries. If Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains finally comes to his senses and balances out the play calling, then Chicago’s running game could potentially do some damage. I know this is a stretch, but I’m trying to give them some kind of hope.
