Who Stood Out in Bears' Monday Night Win?

The Bears pulled off an impressive win with the national spotlight on, taking out the Cowboys in an away game on Monday night. Who really stood out?

Grizzly Bears: The players who two-stepped all over the big blue star.

Major Wright: With two of Tony Romo's four interceptions, Wright led the way for a defense that drove Romo crazy all night. He finished the night with two interceptions, two broken up passes and five tackles.

Brandon Marshall: And that's what a No. 1 receiver looks like. Someone who will make the catch if the ball is thrown near him, fight for more yards, make seven catches for 138 yards and a touchdown? Yes, that's exactly who the Bears need to lead on offense.

Lance Briggs: You know what linebackers don't have to do very often? Sprint for 75 yards. Still, when Briggs got the ball in his hands after a Henry Melton sack or tip, Briggs got it done and made one out of two Bears defensive touchdowns. He added six tackles, a forced fumble, and a deflected pass.

Teddy Bears: The Bears who were lassoed by the Cowboys:

The running backs: The passing attack was clicking on Monday night. Thank goodness, as the running game was having a tough time getting anything done. Matt Forte broke out for a 14-yard run, but other than that, Forte, Michael Bush and Kahlil Bell struggled. Combined, they had just 93 yards

Julius Peppers: Somehow, Romo was sacked just once on Monday night, despite having troubles with his line previously. The Bears secondary took the stage as the vaunted pass rush took a backseat. Still, the nice part is that the Bears defense is good enough that if Peppers and the line have an off day, the secondary can have a four-interception day.
