Bears tight end Martellus Bennett caught five of his six targets for 43 yards in the win over the Cowboys. Bennett hadn't made that many receptions since Week 6 when he hauled in six passes for 68 yards against the Giants.
Bennett will try to stay involved Week 15 at Cleveland.
With the Bears moving the ball at will vs. the Cowboys, running back Michael Bush joined in the fun, catching his first touchdown pass this season. Bush caught a screen in the fourth quarter and barreled 17 yards to the end zone through a demoralized Dallas defense.
Bush ran eight times for 38 yards, a 4.8-yard average, as he tied his season high in carries. The touchdown catch was his only target.
Bears receiver Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 100 yards in the win over Dallas, his sixth 100-yard game this season. The effort put Marshall over 1,000 receiving yards for the seventh straight year.
Marshall started fast, making three catches for 49 yards on the first two drives. He delivered a vicious block on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee that enabled quarterback Josh McCown to scramble for a first down.
Marshall, who had 78 yards by halftime, was targeted eight times, third most on the team. Marshall was targeted in the end zone, but corner Brandon Carr covered him tightly and McCown's throw was off the mark.
Marshall will try to break his two-game scoring drought Sunday in Cleveland.
Bears running back Matt Forte piled up 175 yards from scrimmage in the Week 14 blowout of the Cowboys. He ran for 102 yards on 20 carries, a 5.1-yard average, and caught seven passes for 73 yards and a touchdown.
It was Forte's second straight 100-yard rushing game, third this season. He surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the fourth time in his six-year career.
Matching his season high in receiving yards, Forte tallied his ninth score on a 4-yard catch in the third quarter. He tied for the team lead with nine targets.
Forte will try to keep rolling Week 15 at Cleveland.
It's hard to justify letting Jay Cutler have his job back. Bears backup quarterback Josh McCown continued his sterling play with a five-touchdown explosion against the hapless Cowboys on Monday night.
McCown completed 27 of 36 throws (75 percent) for 348 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, and he ran for a 7-yard touchdown. He posted a near-perfect 141.9 passer rating and did not commit a turnover.
McCown found Earl Bennett wide open for a 4-yard score on Chicago's opening drive. Right before halftime, McCown lofted a 25-yard pass to the back corner of the end zone. Alshon Jeffery skied between two Cowboys defenders, corralling it for a highlight-reel score.
McCown hit running backs Matt Forte and Michael Bush for second-half touchdowns as Chicago scored on its first eight possessions. McCown has nine touchdowns and two turnovers in his last three starts. Remarkably, the 348 yards were the fewest he's passed for during that stretch.
McCown added 16 yards on three carries.
It's unclear whether McCown will get another start Week 15 at Cleveland, as Cutler appears close to returning from his ankle injury.
