2010 Look Back – Bears Stop Cowboys in Dallas 27-20

Today it’s week two of our look back to the 2010 season, as the Bears topped the Cowboys 27-20 in a week two win in Dallas to get to 2-0 on the young season.

Last year he receives blame, this year he’s receiving accolades.

Did you see the Bears defensive pursuit? Make no doubt about it, these Bears are hungry.

After all, you figure they would be after all the negative publicity this Summer.  Consider Jay Cutler, who gets abused unlike any other QB in the media.  Oh, and he’s not the only area of attack, as the defense is constantly getting ripped apart to pieces.  Statement game?  Answering the critics?  I believe so.  These Bears are awake.  Out from hibernation.

Right from the start you could see both teams desire to emphasize the pass rush.  And they did just that, acting upon their desire.  Early on neither QB could get a moment to breathe and survey the field.  The blitzes were fierce, often, and utilized extensively on both Cutler and Romo.  They were under heavy pressure, the heat was turned up, until one QB found a way to defeat it.

Following a Dez Bryant punt return that went the distance to make it 7-3 Dallas, the Cowboys proceeded to pooch the ensuing kickoff to the Bears 42.  Bad decision.  Two plays later, Cutler found Hester for a 19-yard completion, more yards than he had against Detroit in Week 1.  After that came the biggest play of the game.  Cutler found a way to beat the aggressive pass rush; he became aggressive, beating aggressiveness with his own aggressiveness.
