The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE
The Cowboys defense has been inconsistent. They let up 27 points to the lowly Seattle offense, but held the Giants and Buccaneers to the same total combined.
They lead the league with 250.0 YPG allowed and are tied for seventh with 18.0 PPG allowed.
However, the Cowboys should have a field day against the Bears and the struggling Jay Cutler.
After throwing for 126 yards and four interceptions against Green Bay, Cutler was equally unimpressive in his Week 3 performance against the Rams, throwing for 183 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
The Bears running game has its share of injuries as well. Matt Forte is questionable for Week 4 and Michael Bush only had four second-half carries against the Rams. The Bears plan to work out former Green Bay running back Ryan Grant on Tuesday, so this could be a sign that their top two backs injuries are worse than they are letting on (via ESPN).
The Cowboys defense should be started purely for the reason that Jay Cutler has struggled tremendously and is playing with little confidence. Not breaking the 200-yard mark for consecutive weeks is a major issue for the Bears QB.
Owners should feel confident starting America's team as their defense.
