"We never had an answer," cornerback Brandon Carr said. "They had their way with us in all three phases of the game."
DeMarcus Ware was asked by a reporter after the game what he thought about McCown's five touchdowns.
"If you were back there at quarterback and we played the way we played you'd probably have five touchdowns," Ware responded.
One more loss and those pads will be hitting the ground for good before January.
Here is what else we learned in Chicago:
- Alshon Jeffery was awesome again. We won't belabor the point. Links to the "Great works of Alshon" below:
- Jones said he wants his defense to take more risks. He emphatically insisted that doesn't mean a change in philosophy. He said when his defense plays conservatively it gets burned (he also said the Cowboys got burned when they took chances Monday night). Jerry really wants Rob Ryan back, even if he won't say it.
- Sean Lee, in his first game back, left with a neck injury. Jones said afterward he wasn't sure if, or how long, Lee would be out.
- Temperatures dipped well into the negatives, with the wind-chill at -8 degrees at one point. It was so cold even Mike Ditka called it "unbearable." (We're unsure if the pun was intended.)
