At the half...

... the Bears lead 20-14.  A late first-half interception thrown by Tony Romo resulted in a 40-yard field goal by Robbie Gould and the Bears carry a 20-14 lead into halftime with Dallas set to receive the second-half kickoff.

A few observations:

* Danieal Manning is much more involved in what the Bears are trying to do in stopping the run, and so far his presence seems to have helped as the Bears limited the Cowboys to just 32 yards on the ground in the first half.

* If Mike Martz is trying to build the second coming of the "Greatest Show on Turf" in Chicago, he's got the weapons for the most part, including a pass-catching tight end in Greg Olsen that he didn't really have in St. Louis.  Johnny Knox seems to be filling the Isaac Bruce role because he runs a ton of deep routes, just like Bruce used to do in that offense.

* The best player on the field is DeMarcus Ware.  Unblockable most of the first half.
