While the Chicago Bears are looking to restore some pride before the end of the season, visitors the Dallas Cowboys have completely different ambitions.
Both teams will be looking to bounce back from Thanksgiving losses last week, with the Bears going down to the Detroit Lions while the Cowboys lost a critical game against divisional rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.
A 33-10 loss saw Dallas (8-4) lose first place in the NFC East and their playoff position in the conference as they trail the Eagles by one game while Seattle and Detroit hold the advantage over them for a wild-card spot with the tiebreaker.
The Cowboys visit Philadelphia on December 14, but before that they will be desperate to overcome the Bears (5-7) who continue to struggle this season.
Coach Marc Trestman continues to be plagued with injuries but ultimately that hasn’t been the biggest problem at the franchise this year. With quarterback Jay Cutler amongst those struggling for consistency and good play, it has been a huge disappointment for Chicago given that they were expected to compete in the playoffs at least.
However, that looks more and more unlikely as the weeks go by with the Green Bay Packers and Lions leading the way in the NFC North, and so they will be looking to keep their pride intact.
That is easier said than done against Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray who will look to exploit their defensive weaknesses, but this game does promise to produce plenty of entertainment on both offenses.
Cutler insists that the Bears will not quit, but looking at their numbers and those of Murray and Romo, it may not be up to them to decide.
