Another week, another tough opponent for the Dallas Cowboys. This week the Dallas Cowboys find themselves locked up in a primetime Monday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears. The 2-1 teams will square off in the final matchup of week 4, and the final game before the Cowboys get a week off the following Sunday. 

In preparation for the game, we have turned to our Chicago Bears 101 counterparts for some answers about the team. Here is what Bears 101 writer PJ Foti had to say about the game:

DC101: We recently did a toss up piece between Bears and 'Boys players. Who would you rather have and why? Romo or Cutler? Forte or Murray? Bryant or Marshall? Peppers or Ware?

What type of impact can Tony have against the Bears?(Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE)

CB101For the quarterback, I'm taking Romo. He's a better quarterback and has been known to make better decisions with the football. He is also a better leader as he isn't one to call out his teammates–like Cutler has done recently.

I'm taking Matt Forte at running back. Although Forte has the injury prone tag, he's a proven runner. Murray is young and raw and has a lot of potential to be a great running back in this league, but Forte is the focal point of Chicago's offense (usually is close to the team lead in receptions as well) and for that reason he's the more complete runner.

Brandon Marshall is better than Dez Bryant in my opinion. Again, he's done it before. Put Marshall in a nice situation, he'll explode for an offense. Bryant has been known to disappear at times–that may be due to the other weapons around him–but it's still worth noting. Marshall always gets his targets, and usually will bring them down.

This is the toughest question to me. Peppers and Ware is a wash. They are both spectacular on the line and always require a double team. Gun to my head, I'm taking Ware because he reached 100 sacks second quickest in league history. But it's a tough call.

DC101: With both the Packers and Lions struggling out of the gates, do you think Chicago is the best team in that division?

CB101:Chicago isn't the best team in the division. The still have the loss to Green Bay on their resume, who lost to two great teams. The Bears haven't played either of them yet, and expect them to lose both because of the pass rush San Francisco and Seattle have. The O-line has been a problem for Chicago, and Cutler without time isn't too good (as you can tell by the numbers). They do look better than Detroit, but Green Bay should pass the Bears before season's end.

DC101: Reports have said Forte may be back for MNF. Do you think he'll play and what type of impact can he have?

CB101: He actually returned to practice, but it's still tough to say if he'll be in the lineup. I'll answer this in a fantasy football sense because that's how others will relate to it best. If Forte does play, he won't produce the numbers we are used to seeing as his snaps would likely be limited. Having said that, he's going to do enough to annoy the fantasy owners starting Michael Bush.

DC101: Who or what on the Dallas Cowboys scares you guys the most?

CB101: DeMarcus Ware. The guy is an animal. He'd be the reason Cutler has no time in the pocket, meaning the offense won't move anywhere. J'Marcus Webb (LT) has been the weak spot on the line, so Ware will have his ears pinned and ready to feast on Cutler.

DC101: Final prediction?

CB101: Dallas 19, Chicago 9

So what do you all think? Do you agree with taking Forte over Murray? How about the final prediction? Let us know in the comments and on Facebook!
