The Bears' defense again dominated and the offense did its part, too, in a 34-18 statement victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football at Cowboys Stadium.

The Bears forced Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo into throwing five interceptions – two that turned into touchdowns by Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs – while Jay Cutler was efficient and connected with Brandon Marshall for 138 yards on seven catches with a touchdown.

The Bears are tied with Minnesota for first place in the NFC North heading into Sunday's 3 p.m. game at Jacksonville.
