Bears defense forces 5 interceptions in monster fantasy performance vs. Cowboys

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Chicago Bears defense intercepted Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo five times on Monday Night Football, returning two for touchdowns. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chicago Bears defense intercepted Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo five times on Monday Night Football in Week 4, returning two of the picks for touchdowns. They also forced three fumbles (none recovered), had one sack and held the Cowboys to 18 points despite giving up 430 total yards.

Fantasy Impact: Every fantasy league seems to score the Team D/ST component differently, but suffice it to say the Bears likely won several matchups for fantasy owners on Monday night. In my own standard scoring league, they led all options with 44 fantasy points. After Monday's game, the Bears now lead the NFL with 14 turnovers forced. They should continue to be a solid unit, with next week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars looking particularly enticing.
