Drive of the game: Major Wright's interception
Trailing, 17-7, after the first drive of the third quarter, the Cowboys appeared ready to answer Jay Cutler’s touchdown pass to Devin Hester with one of their own.
Tony Romo completed four straight passes to Kevin Ogletree, Jason Witten and Dez Bryant twice for 63 yards, but after a 2-yard loss by DeMarco Murray, Ogletree let a slant pass bounce off his arm into the air for a Major Wright interception at the Chicago 6.
The Cowboys and Bears ping-ponged turnovers but Lance Briggs was able to return an interception 74 yards for a Chicago touchdown to make it 24-7 with 6:11 left in the third quarter.
“I felt we were up and down the field throwing,” coach Jason Garrett said. “Just at different times they made the key plays. We got down to the red zone and they made an interception preventing us from getting a score.”
