On Sunday, September 19th, NFL betting action comes to you from Cowboys Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys will play host to Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears.

Point Spread: Head Coach Wade Phillips’ Cowboys currently sit at (-8) with the game ’total’ set at 40.5.

Chicago enters Week 2 after stealing a win vs. Detroit on a call that will be talked about all season long. QB Jay Cutler completed 23-of-35 passes for 372 yards through the air to go with a TD/INT ratio of 2/1. The star of the game though was RB Matt Forte, who had trouble pacing the ground game with 50 yards and a fumble, but he was the leading receiver hauling in seven catches for 151 yards and two scores. WR Devin Aromashodu added five receptions for 71 yards. The Bears defense picked backup QB Shaun Hill for an INT and recovered two fumbles.

Dallas shot itself in the foot throughout Week 1’s loss that consisted of 10+ penalties with the most crucial coming on the last play of the game that cost them the win. QB Tony Romo threw for 282 yards and one TD while completing 65 percent of his passes. The ground game was pretty non-existent as Marion Barber and Felix Jones combined to run for only 77 yards. WR Miles Austin had a huge first game hauling in a team leading 10 catches for 146 yards and a TD. Rookie WR Dez Bryant had a nice debut making eight receptions for 56 yards. The Cowboys defense sacked Donovan McNabb once.
