It seems rather odd, but tonight will be only the second time the Bears and Dallas Cowboys will meet for Monday Night Football. Both are storybook franchises and much is expected of them. The spotlight of this nationally televised game will be extremely bright and every positive and negative will be seen. Since it is the only game on the schedule, the next day loser will get picked apart like the turkey after Thanksgiving.
To that end, there are similarities: Both teams have highly scrutinized quarterbacks, with Jay Cutler for Chicago and Eastern Illinois product Tony Romo for Dallas. Each is considered a "franchise-type" player, however, neither have produced a win where it matters — at the Super Bowl.
