After enduring two straight losses, the Chicago Bears desperately needed a victory on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. The Chicago offense did not disappoint, amassing 490 yards of total offense en route to the 45-28 victory over the Cowboys.

The Lions will have to prove they are not the same team we have seen in the past that crumbles down the stretch while the Bears will try to find momentum en route to a potential playoff berth.
Here are my five takeaways from the Bears' 45-28 victory against the Dallas Cowboys.
