Bears Rewind: Bears Pick Off Tony Romo Five Times!

Chicago Bears

Unlike last week’s matchup — where the Patriots had dominated the all-time series between the two — the Bears have had some recent success against the Cowboys. Chicago won their last meeting in December 2019, and four of the previous six meetings dating back to 2010.

One of my favorite Bears-Cowboys games in that span was the 2012 meeting in Arlington at old Cowboys Stadium. The Bears thumped Dallas 34-18, and Jay Cutler had an excellent performance. Cutler completed 18-of-24 passes for 275 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions.

The Bears even saw old friend Kyle Orton in this one when he replaced Tony Romo. Orton completed 9-of-10 passes for 89 yards and a touchdown against his old mates, but it wasn’t enough to help Dallas overcome the Bears.

The Bears’ defense stymied the Cowboys, picking off Romo a whopping five times and holding the Cowboys’ rushing attack to 41 yards on the ground. Major Wright picked Romo off twice, and Lance Briggs, D.J. Moore, and Charles Tillman each got in on the fun with interceptions.
