There is a lot of people that think the Bears will upset the Cowboys in the 2nd week of the 2010 NFL season. But I don't think that at all. It seems like I am the only one that thinks the Boys will beat them by a lot. Besides, if the Cowboys beat Washington last week, nobody would think the Bears would upset Dallas this week.


Reason 1: The Bears do not have a good secondary. So Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, and Company will destroy the Bears in the passing game. The matchups would be Miles Austin vs Charles Tillman. We all know who wins this matchup. If you don't know, Austin will destroy Tillman. Roy Williams vs Zack Bowman. Keyword: Size. 

Reason 2: The Cowboys are getting Marc Colombo and Kyle Kosier back. Dallas will get better protection for Romo and not have as much holding/false start penalties as they did last week (cough Alex Barron cough.) Also the running game will be better with them back.

Reason 3: Bears O-Line is terrible and Demarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer, and Jay Ratiliff will crush Cutler, forcing Mr. Turnover to make turnovers. Just look at what the Lions did last week. They had 4 sack, interception, and I thing a forced fumble. It's the Lions!

Reason 4: Dez!!!  Dez will step up and be the player of the game. Especially with the 3rd string cornerback or a safety guarding him. Expect Romo to throw to him a lot.

Reason 5: Bears are not as good as the Cowboys. If you look at most of the positions, the Cowboys have the edge. the only position I think the Bears have the edge is Kicker. Darn!! I would also say the Bears have a slight edge on Defensive line and that is it.

My prediction: Dallas will have less mistakes and beat the Bears 31-14.
