The Bears improved their Monday Night Record under Lovie Smith to 8-2 with last night's victory

The Bears defense rose to the occasion once again and the team now has a two-game winning streak. Last night's 34-18 victory over the Dallas Cowboys was the second time this season in which the Bears held a team to under 20 points.

Thanks to Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman, the Bears defense has now scored three touchdowns this year and it's only Week 4.

The Bears collected five picks on the night and returned those INTs for a total of 99 yards. The offense also deserves some credit for their contributions.

Jay Cutler threw for over 200 yards for the first time since Week 1, he also spread the ball to seven different Bears receivers.

The running game also played a part on Monday night. Matt Forte, Michael Bush, Kahlil Bell and Jay Cutler put together a combined 28 carries for 93 yards.

The Bears averaged nearly four yards per carry last night. Credit must also be given to the offensive line as they only allowed Jay Cutler to get sacked twice. 

They also cleared the way for the running game. Despite the two sacks, they managed to keep Jay Cutler on his feet for 90 percent of the game.

The Dallas Cowboys came into last night's game as the top ranked defense in the National Football League. That is sure to change once the new rankings come out.

The Bears have a chance to improve their record to 4-1 when they play the 1-3 Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

But for now we will enjoy last night's victory. Here are the top five players that stood out last night...
