Offense — QB Jay Cutler

It looked like it was going to be a long day for Cutler, who was sacked twice — one was negated by offsetting penalties — on the Bears' first two possessions. He didn't try to hide his frustration with the lack of protection from the Bears' offensive line, but he shook off the hits and recovered nicely. Cutler completed 21-of-29 passes for 277 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Defense — CBs D.J. Moore and Charles Tillman

Moore helped set the tone for Chicago, picking off Tony Romo on Dallas' first possession, which set up a Robbie Gould field goal on the ensuing drive. He wasn't done, though. Moore intercepted Romo again with less than two minutes remaining in the first half, and Gould cashed in again with a field goal. Tillman killed a fourth-quarter drive by Dallas when he stripped the ball from Roy Williams as Moore had him wrapped up.

Special teams — PK Robbie Gould

Gould was his usual reliable self, connecting on his field-goal attempts of 38 and 40 yards. He also had kickoffs of 75 and 77 yards that resulted in touchbacks, helping out the Bears' coverage units, which were not at their best on Sunday.
