FRISCO, Texas — It appears Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears have figured a few things out, and right in time to visit a Dallas Cowboys defense that hasn't performed well against what the tourists from the Windy City bring to the battlefield.
Having used a dominant rushing attack - to the tune of 241 yards on the ground - to impose their will in a blowout victory over the New England Patriots in Week 7, the Bears are hoping to exploit the sole weakness of what is otherwise arguably the best defense in the NFL. The Cowboys, however, have something else in mind after trading for big-body run-stopper Johnathan Hankins.
Hankins was acquired to help stop all manner of rushing attack, and it sets the stage for what should be one of the more interesting matchups around this weekend.
After all, there is no shortage of storylines in this one: from former Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus facing off against Dak Prescott to Micah Parsons trying to hunt down Justin Fields, the latter two having a friendly connection off the field stemming from the Ohio State-Penn State rivalry that still burns hot in their blood.
It's a Week 8 clash you'll want to be front-and-center for, and below is everything you need to know to be locked in this Sunday.
