Sunday Night is a great time for the bettor as they look to increase profits or look to recoup their losses during the day. On that note, here is our NFL Pick for tonight's game!

Chicago Bears vs Dallas Cowboys

The Best Possible News For the Chicago Bears
Although we're never to wish an injury on a player, Jay Cutler, who is the worst quarterback in the NFL, will be out for 2 to 3 weeks with a thumb injury. The Bears were ineffective in their 29-14 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles with Cutler in the game and equally ineffective with Cutler out of the game as the outcome of the game wasn't indicative of what a blowout that this game really was.


Capable Backup QB
Brian Hoyer will take over for Jay Cutler and Hoyer is a capable backup, but I don't expect him to throw for 3 or 4 touchdowns. Hoyer filled in admirably for Cutler last week and went 9 of 12 for 78 yards. Expect a more prepared Brian Hoyer this week and he'll need to be at his best as the Dallas Cowboys are feeling confident from their 27-23 victory over their arch nemesis, the Washington Redskins.

As for Hoyer, he's coming off of his best season as a pro as he had 19 touchdown passes and just 7 interceptions to go along with 2606 yards as a member of the Houston Texans.

The Bears get a fresh start with Brian Hoyer and you can expect him to hook up with star wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (201 yards) and 2nd-year receiver Kevin White (7 receptions, 70 yards). Let's not forget the running game as Jeremy Langford will get the bulk of the carries. Thus far this season, Langford has scored a touchdown in each game but has just 28 carries for 85 yards. He'll have to play much better for Chicago to be competitive against the Dallas Cowboys.


Haven't Missed a Beat
I'm referring to the Dallas Cowboys with rookie quarterback, Dak Prescott, leading the way instead of Tony Romo. Prescott has been an immediate star since the preseason and the biggest surprise of the NFL Draft.

He's still looking for his 1st NFL passing touchdown, but Prescott has scored a rushing TD and has run the Cowboys offense quite well. In the first two games of the season, Prescott has managed to find Dez Bryant (110 yards) and Jason Witten (117 yards) and has thrown for over 250 yards per game with a completion rate of 62.7%. Look for Prescott to play well against the down and out Bears squad and we could see the Cowboys put up a significant amount of points.

Another player to watch is rookie, Ezekiel Elliott. Elliot has gotten off to a slow start (2 fumbles) but had a big week 2 against Washington. He's going to make rookie mistakes, but the Bears are a great team for Elliott to gain NFL experience against.

The total for this game is placed really well at 44 1/2 by 5 Dimes Sportsbook and although I expect points to be scored, look for an under the total here as these two teams are still a work in progress.
