OUR PREDICTION: Quarterback Jay Cutler is pushing the coaching staff to play in this game but he's doubtful due to a thumb injury suffered against the Eagles on Monday night. That means Brian Hoyer will draw the start for the Bears, who have looked horrible on offense in their first two games. Alshon Jeffery is also banged up and didn't practice on Thursday due to a knee injury. If Cutler and Jeffery don't play, the Cowboys should roll to a victory as the Bears' defense spends the entire game on the field.
