The Dallas Cowboys (2-1) will play host to the Chicago Bears (2-1) in Week 4 on Monday Night Football.

Even though head coach Jason Garrett hardly witnessed a banner performance in his team's Week 3 victory, the Dallas Cowboys will put their 2-1 overall record on the line for a Monday Night Football showdown with the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

Unable to break free in the running game due to protection issues across the offensive line, Cowboys tailback DeMarco Murray will need to provide a much greater impact after churning out just 55 yards from scrimmage on Sunday. Worse yet, Murray could only manage 38 yards on 18 rush attempts despite the win, in a performance that helped Dallas finish with a woeful 1.7 yards per carry average against Tampa's front seven.

After losing starting safety Barry Church with a torn Achilles on Sunday, the Cowboys will hope to get a longer look at cornerback Brandon Carr on the back end of the secondary against the Bears. Carr saw time at safety in the win over Tampa Bay after Church's injury, but will be tested early and often by a pass-happy Bears offense that loves to stretch the field.

Game time: 7:30 p.m. CT

TV channel: ESPN

Odds: Dallas -3.5
