Tonight’s game on Monday Night Football will feature two teams desperate for a win if either has hopes of a post season. The field has been cleared, but there is nothing that can be done about the cold and wind. Dallas will enter the confines of Soldier Field expecting a brutal game. The game tonight will greatly hinge on whose defense is able to slow down the running game. The Cowboy’s defense appeared to improve in the second half of last week’s game.
The return of Sean Lee should help the Cowboy’s defense. The Cowboy defense will need big games from DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher. If Kyle Wilbur continues to shine, this group of linebackers could really help a struggling defensive line. Tyron Smith will have another big test tonight, as he will try to keep Julius Peppers off Tony Romo. The rest of the offensive line must do likewise. Protecting Romo will be a big task against a charging Chicago Bear defense. It will be a cold one with wind chills near Zero.
Expect some major brawls by both teams in the trenches in this week 14 game. After all, losing tonight could possibly be the end of someone’s post-season dreams.
