    The changes this Dallas roster has undergone this offseason have been well documented. What remains unknown is how those changes will affect this team during the 2015 season. Fans and management alike are hoping week 1 is a true harbinger of what's in store for these Cowboys.

    Facing a tough Bears squad, Dallas proceeded to match Chicago play for play and a few times, outplay them. At the half it was 21-21. Cutler had delivered 2 scoring strikes and Forte had punched one in on the ground from 54yds out. Romo also delivered 2 TD passes of his own and Murray rushed one in from 5yds out. The teams also exchanged quite a few turnovers in that first half.

    The 2nd half was a bit different. After a long Cowboy drive ended in another Romo TD pass, the defense stepped up and provided a stop of the Bear offense, forcing a punt. PR B. Lampley broke 1 tackle and outran the rest of the coverage team for a 67yd return and a TD. It was what the offense needed since the drive before had taxed the starters. Had Lampley not scored, who knows how effective the offense would've been. But, it was moot point. The defense then proceeded to force another point on the following Chicago drive. This time, Lampley was untouched as he raced for a 68yd TD. Just like that, Dallas had scored 21pts in under 3:00 and put the game out of reach. Murray iced the win with a 77yd TD run early in the 4th, taking advantage of solid blocking from his OL, which just may turn out to be a real strength for this team if they continue to play like they did today.

    Romo threw for 174yds and 3 TDs. Murray contributed with 200yds on the ground and 2 scores. And 6 different receivers caught passes to spread the ball around and keep the defense honest. On defense A. Spencer was unstoppable and CB O. Scandrick did a great job both covering the slot and filling in for an injured M. Claiborne in the 2nd half. But the game ball has to go to PR/KR B. Lampley for the spark he gave this team when they needed it the most.
