... the party's over. In the immortal words of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Don Meredith, this one is probably over after a 3-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler to Matt Forte gave Chicago a 27-17 lead over the Cowboys with 5:16 left in the game.
The Cowboys had several chances in the second half to tie or take the lead, but couldn't get out of their own way on offense with penalties, turnovers and poor execution. Defensively, they played a horrific game in the secondary.
Both ACU exes in the game for the Bears – Danieal Manning and Johnny Knox – had nice afternoons. Before the Cowboys' drive that started with 5:15 left in the game, Manning had five tackles (four solo) and Knox had a team-high four catches for 86 yards.
Maybe I spoke too soon, however. The Cowboys are marching inside the Chicago 40 with 4:40 to play.
