Chicago Bears beat the host Dallas Cowboys 34-18 on Monday as two of the five defensive starters of Chicago, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman, returned interceptions for touchdowns at Cowboys Stadium.
The match was a nightmare for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who completed 31 passes of 43 attempts for 307 yards.
He was replaced with Kyle Orton, who ended up completing nine of his 10 passes for 89 yards and one touchdown.
“We have to keep figuring out a way to execute better. There are simple things sometimes,” Romo said.
“The No. 1 factor is taking care of the football. I know that. We preach it to the guys every day. It was obviously frustrating when I was the one who turned it over tonight. The last couple of interceptions were just stupid.”
Jay Cutler of Bears completed 11 of 12 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns after halftime. Cutler was 18 of 24 overall for 275 yards.
Bears coach Lovie Smith said after the game: “Just outstanding play by our defence. It seemed like everybody had a say in it.”
Witten said: “This has to be a wake-up call for us. I don’t say that nonchalantly. You can’t bounce back and forth like this, and try to compete come December-time.”
Bears are 3-1 after four games and it was their second consecutive victory. They are placed at second spot in National Football Conference (NFC) North.
Cowboys, On the other hand, are 2-2 and placed at second spot in NFC East.
