Cowboys vs Bears: 6 things to know about Week 8 opponent

The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a victory that gets them back on track with a 5-2 record.

The win over Detroit featured the return of quarterback Dak Prescott, who shook off some rust and got into a rhythm in the second half, guiding the offense.

After losing to a division rival the week prior, the Cowboys refocused and came back with a team effort in the win over the Lions.

All three phases played a role in Dallas’ win, which included a defense that got back on track with five sacks and forced five turnovers.

The next opponent to step into the stadium with the Cowboys is the Chicago Bears.

It’s the second of four straight matchups with NFC North teams,

 and the Cowboys are hoping to head into their bye week on a good note.

 Here are six things to know about the Week 8 opponent for the Cowboys.

 New England Patriots at 2-4 and coming off a loss where they looked lost on offense.

After blowing out the Patriots, the Bears are now 3-4 and are just one game out of the wild card race in a jumbled NFC.

 It was the best game of the year for a team struggling on offense.

It’s going to be a short week of preparation for the Bears coming off Monday Night Football,

but this game against the Cowboys might determine if the win over New England was an aberration,

 or if they’re just getting going in their 2022 campaign. Either way,

the Bears were impressive in their latest win and this game looks tougher now for Dallas than it did last week.
