The Chicago Bears after an electric Monday night primetime upset against the Patriots are now faced with arguably the toughest task of their young season next week with the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys are in my opinion one of the four best teams in this league right now and are one of the most well-rounded teams in the league — although it looks as though they will be without running back, Ezekiel Elliott.

The Dallas Cowboys are pressuring the quarterback at a league-high of 40.5% of dropbacks which is concerning because the Bears allow pressure at 50% on dropbacks. Not to mention the Cowboys are 2nd in points allowed per game this season. The Bears are in a David vs Goliath situation this Sunday going against one of the best teams in the league coming off a short week and traveling to Dallas.

The Chicago Bears must hit on these three keys vs the Dallas Cowboys

The Chicago Bears are currently set as 9.5-point underdogs and have quite the task on their hands with this Cowboys’ defense, and their new and healthy offense under Dak Prescott. How can the Bears win this game though?

We take a look at three keys to this game that should help keep the Chicago Bears in a position to hit .500 in the record column again. This would also mean they are staying afloat in the NFC North as the Packers likely come away with a loss to the Buffalo Bills this week.
