Alshon Jeffery fantasy owners have to hope for the Bears to take some shots during the second half. Jeffery has only one catch for 22 yards (on one target). With Chicago down 24-3, it's time for Brian Hoyer test the top of the secondary. The Bears need to generate some explosive plays in this one.

Without their Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith, the Cowboys are having no problem running the ball against Chicago. Ezekiel Elliott is the only Cowboys tailback without a touchdown but the rookie has 76 yards on 13 carries. Dak Prescott, Lance Dunbar and Alfred Morris have the Cowboys' touchdowns, giving them seven rushing scores in 10 quarters on the season. The Cowboys had eight all of last season. They lead, 24-3, at halftime.

Colts avoid having the feeling of doomsday by beating the Chargers and avoiding an 0-3 start to the season.

The Cowboys offensive line is putting on a clinic up front. Can run inside zone all night. Lot of daylight there for RBs Ezekiel Elliott and Alfred Morris. Cowboys up 24-3 late in the second quarter after Morris' touchdown run.

The winless Bears _ without their best pass rusher, defensive tackle and top linebacker _ are making Dak Prescott look like Carson Wentz


Cowboys are rolling! Alfred Morris runs it in to extend Dallas' lead over Bears to 24-3.

Referee Craig Wrolstad picks up flag thrown on Jason Witten for holding, after apparently doing nothing more than asking Witten if he did it

Philip Rivers said the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he got in the fourth quarter was maybe the worst call he's had against him in his NFL career. Rivers had completed a 43-yard pass to Travis Benjamin, and turned back to say something to Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle David Parry when he was flagged on the play. The Chargers settled for a Josh Lambo 27-yard field goal. "I never got one really for doing nothing, and maybe the cleanest thing said on that field today," Rivers said. Rivers said his gesture was a little arrogant but really nothing, and hoped that the person he was talking to in Parry would vouch for him. "We were friendly all day," River said. "He had one earlier where I had to throw the ball away, and he said something to me like, ‘They're gloved up out there,' and we kind of laughed. It was nothing. "And I hit that one, and he made some comment to the effect of ‘He didn't catch that.' And my exact words were ‘That was a dime, c'mon.' That was it. That was exactly it, nothing else. So from 30 yards away I get a penalty, when he should have been spotting the ball."

That onside kick by the Bears against Cowboys is another reason why coaches should be able to challenge any play you want in the NFL

Dak Prescott set up the Cowboys TD off a pick route to WR Cole Beasley. With Beasley coming in motion, Bears CB Jacoby Glenn went under the pick. That created immediate separation and put Glenn in a trail position -- chasing the play. You want to see DBs work over the top of the pick to stay on top of the route...Cowboys already up 17-0 in the second quarter.

For what it's worth, prior to MRI on his knee Monday, Russell Wilson is expecting to play next Sunday vs Jets.

1) Jordan Howard 😍 2) J.J. Wilcox dropkicking that guy on the sidelines 3) That guy's reaction to being dropkicked

With Lance Dunbar's 1-yard dive the Cowboys have six rushing touchdowns in less than 10 quarters this season. They had eight rushing touchdowns all of last season.
