Tom Pennington/Getty Images(DALLAS) — The Chicago Bears have answered plenty of questions about their offense this season. On Monday Night, they let their defense do the talking.

The Bears picked off Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo five times and cruised to a 34-18 victory on Monday Night Football.

Chicago (3-1) returned two of the picks for touchdowns and got two touchdown passes from quarterback Jay Cutler in the easy victory. 

Romo finished 31 of 43 for 307 yards and a touchdown to go along with the five interceptions for Dallas (2-2), which tied a career high. 

After a scoreless first quarter, the bears got on the board with a Robbie Gould field goal before cornerback Charles Tillman picked off Romo and returned it 25 yards for a touchdown and a 10-0 lead. The Bears would lead the rest of the way. 

Cutler finished 18 of 24 for 275 yards and touchdown passes to Devin Hester and Brandon Marshall. Matt Forte rushed for 52 yards in a return from a high ankle sprain. 

The Bears play the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road next week.
