PASSING OFFENSE: A-plus -- Quarterback Tony Romo started slowly but he built up to a crescendo against the vaunted Bears defense, passing for 329 yards and two touchdowns. Terrell Owens was a beast with eight catches for 145 yards.
RUSHING OFFENSE: B-minus -- The Cowboys didn't run the ball well the
entire night but they stayed with it and in the end wore down the Bears
defense. Marion Barber had a 54-yard run in the fourth quarter as he
finished with 102 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown.
PASS DEFENSE: A -- The Cowboys harassed Rex Grossman with three sacks
and three interceptions. DeMarcus Ware had his first two sacks of the
season. Anthony Henry had two interceptions for the second straight
week. This time, he returned one 28 yards for a touchdown.
RUSH DEFENSE: A -- Cedric Benson rushed for 46 yards as the Cowboys
completely shut down the Bears running game. Nose tackle Jay Ratliff had
a nice outing against Pro Bowl center Olin Kreutz.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- The Cowboys' ability to stop Superman return man
Devin Hester trumped a number of special teams ills, including a blocked
field goal, a deflected punt, a kickoff out of bounds and a muffed
kickoff return out of bounds.
COACHING: A -- The Cowboys didn't cower in the face of the Bears'
vaunted defense. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett did what he does
best: called an aggressive downfield passing attack and blitzed the
Bears for 31 second-half points.
