(NEW YORK) — The Dallas Cowboys (7-5) are hoping to end their December struggles on Monday night against the Chicago Bears.
Since Tony Romo took over as the starting quarterback in 2006, the Cowboys own a 13-17 record in December.
“It’ll be a good football game,” Romo said. “It’ll be a good test, it’s gonna be a tough environment.”
The Bears (6-6) are still in the thick of the NFC North race and understand the importance of Monday night.
“There’s a whole lot of football to be played. We show signs of having enough to finish, of playing offensively well enough to finish, of doing things we need to get done,” Trestman told the Bears’ official website. “But we haven’t done it on a consistent basis over the last month. We’ve got to start on Monday night and do that. That was the message: Let’s worry about what we can control and that’s being at our best on Monday night against the Cowboys.”
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett isn’t concerned about the rough December record under Romo.
“You hear me say this all the time, but we’re focused on winning one game,” Garrett said. “We want to play one good ballgame. That’s really what we’re focused on. We’ll let everyone else figure out what the history of the world is.”
