    CHI 31, DAL 24: Cowboys Stay Lost, Drop to 6-7

    The once again looked lethargic and unprepared, and with that picked up another loss in the . Their 31-24 road loss to the Chicago Bears only added to the misery of the season, and wasn't nearly as close as the final score might lead you to believe.

    Dallas opened the game with a strong 17-play touchdown drive, followed by a interception to get some positive momentum going. But it all went downhill from that point forward, and everyone is to blame.

    The Cowboys collapsed, allowing Mitch Trubisky to have a big game and giving up 24 unanswered points during the second and third quarters. Chicago's final yardage of 385 wasn't high, but Dallas couldn't get any critical stops when the game was still in reach.

    ran for 72 yards on 12 carries in the first half but then had just nine yards the rest of the way. Dallas was forced to pass more as the Bears were running away and it wasn't a good night; only completed 55% of his passes and couldn't convert on third downs.

    hit a late field goal but far more critical was his miss from 42 in the second quarter. The miss was demoralizing and forced Dallas into a two-possession deficit at halftime.

    There's only so much to say here. The Cowboys fall to 6-7, dropping below .500 for the first in 2019. But even if their record didn't indicate it already, they've been a losing team for a while now.

    Now they get a long rest before hosting the next week. Is that extra time for to try and get some things figured, or will the long break give more impetus to make a change?

    Ladies and gentlemen, your -leading Cowboys!

    What a goofy, awful season this has been.

    Dak looked particularly bad in this game. I was highly skeptical of him coming in to this season and was pleasantly surprised by his effectiveness early in the season. Sadly last night his struggles with inaccurate passes returned in a big way. So many throws were off target or behind receivers. I thought this was something he had worked out. He will never be an elite QB until he fixes this issue with his game for good.
