Bears vs. Cowboys 2012: Bad home loss leaves Dallas fans to stew

While the Cowboys defense did allow two Jay Cutler touchdowns on Monday night, the story of the game was the offensive struggles of the Tony Romo-led offense, which resulted in a 34-18 blow out loss at home for Dallas. Romo finished the night with five interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns and put the Cowboys in a hole they couldn't dig themselves out of.

With a Week 5 bye upcoming, the Cowboys fans will have two weeks to stew over the loss, and K.D. Drummond at Blogging the Boys isn't feeling very optimistic:

Dallas sits at 2-2 but there is so much work to be done on this team that it's hard to remain positive. Looking at the post-bye schedule of at Ravens, at Panthers, vs Giants, at Atlanta and at Philadelphia... the soul-searching over the next two weeks will have to be Paranormal Activity-worthy in order to right this ship.

The five interceptions of Romo are likely to draw plenty of talk from the media during the coming week, as Kyle Orton came in during the final minutes of the game and had much more success, albeit against a defense that was no longer fighting to keep the game in its clutches. He paled in comparison to Bears' quarterback Jay Cutler, who, according to Steven Schweickert of Windy City Gridiron, played completely unlike the Cutler that struggled against the Packers and Rams:

There were a couple questionable throws, but largely, he hit his windows, gave his receivers plays, and didn't take too many unnecessary risks. And fortunately, he didn't have to take too many unnecessary risks, and the Bears still mixed in a few really nice deep calls.

Cutler finished the game 18-of-24 passing for 275 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions, while only get sacked twice by the Cowboys.
