Expert Picks: Bears Won't Stop Cowboys In Primetime

(CBS) Every week during the Bears season, our experts from 670 The Score, CBS2 and WBBM Newsradio 780 & 105.9 FM provide their picks for the Bears game:

Brian Hanley Terry Boers Matt Spiegel
Bears 30, Cowboys 27 Cowboys 24, Bears 23 Cowboys 30, Bears 20
Two bottom-ten defenses against both the run and the pass. Two above average offenses in both, as well. Look for Matt Forte to have a big night on the ground and through the short pass game. Dick Cavett is the hottest man on the planet next to Mike from Milwaukee. I'm going with him until further notice, even though I hate the Cowboys. Dallas has just 13 turnovers, second-fewest in the NFL. The Bears don't add to that number, can't stop Romo enough, and will drop to 0-5 in games in which they score 20 points or less.
Record: 5-7 Record: 9-3 Record: 7-5


Hub Arkush Adam Hoge Matt Abbatacola
Bears 34, Cowboys 31 Cowboys 31, Bears 24 Bears 27, Cowboys 21
The Bears are 4-2 at home, Dallas' defense is every bit as bad as the Bears' and I don't think the Bears can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory two weeks in a row. Plus, it's Tony Romo and it's December. We know what the Bears' defense is at this point. It's not fair, but the offense needs to be nearly perfect to win. With Jay Cutler still out, expect points to be left off the scoreboard again. I do not have the ability to be objective when it comes to the Bears. Home team wins 27-21. #benchCutty

Cowboys 31, Bears 30 Cowboys 27, Bears 24 Cowboys 35, Bears 28
The Bears will shame Ditka. DeMarco Murray isn't Adrian Peterson which means he'll only rush for a meager 150 yards. But some random, no-name Cowboys backup will run for 50 more. The Bears do another Northwestern impression in finding a new way to blow this game late. Tony Romo wins in December and the national media instantly overrates him again as a result of a road win over a bad team. The Bears can't stop anyone. If the Vikings can move the ball on them, the Cowboys sure can. Pretty simple. Bears can't keep up.
Record: 10-2 Record: 2-2 Record: 6-6


Ryan Baker Dan Durkin Josh Liss
Cowboys 27, Bears 20 Cowboys 27, Bears 23 Cowboys 31, Bears 27
Neither one of these defenses are ready for primetime, so the Monday Night QB's should shine under the lights. I don't think Tony Romo will throw five picks this time around. The Bears' defense is predicated on generating turnovers, but the Cowboys are careful with the ball, which will be the difference on Monday night. With a withered Bears defense prone to getting wrecked by the 'Boys' Romo and Murray, there's only one formula for a home team victory: at least four touchdowns plus two or more takeaways by the defense.
Record: 6-6 Record: 6-6 Record: 7-5
