CHICAGO -- Neither the brutal cold nor the leagues worst defence could stop Josh McCown and the Bears. Instead, Chicago jumped right back into the playoff race. McCown threw for a career-high four touchdowns, and the Bears scored on their first eight possessions to grab a share of the NFC North lead with a 45-28 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on a frigid Monday night. The Bears (7-6) retired Hall of Famer Mike Ditkas number at halftime and pulled even with Detroit in the division race on a night when the game-time temperature was in single digits and the wind chill factor was below zero. The loss left Dallas (7-6) a game behind Philadelphia in the NFC East and owner Jerry Jones calling for more aggressive play-calling on defence. The bone-chilling conditions didnt stop McCown from throwing for 348 yards or keep the Bears from running away with a lopsided victory. It was one they desperately needed after consecutive losses, and although Detroit holds the head-to-head sweep, the Bears are back in the thick of the playoff race. "All we could do is try to beat the Dallas Cowboys," coach Marc Trestman said. "We kept it as simple as that. We didnt get into all the hypotheticals and all the things that go into winning or losing a game." Alshon Jefferys leaping catch between two defenders in the corner of the end zone in the closing seconds of the second quarter gave the Bears a 24-14 lead, and they continued to pour it on in the second half after a gut-wrenching overtime loss at Minnesota last week. McCown, making his fourth straight start with Jay Cutler sidelined by a high left ankle sprain, became the first Bears quarterback to throw for 300 or more yards in three straight games. And for that, DeMarcus Ware blamed Dallas defence. "If you were back there quarterbacking and we played the way we played you probably would have five touchdowns," he said. McCown, meanwhile, insisted hes still the backup. And Trestman said the plan with Cutler hasnt changed. "Well see where Jay is this week," he said. "Hell have to be released by the doctors and when Jay is ready to play, hell be playing." Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 100 yards, and Jeffery added 84 yards receiving after breaking his own team record the previous week with 249. Matt Forte chipped in with 102 yards rushing and 73 receiving, and the Bears racked up 490 yards in all. "Basically, we will have to make some adjustments in what we are doing defensively," Jones said. "What that usually means is taking more risks on defence. But if youre going to have the kind of match like we had tonight or certainly in New Orleans you have to take some risks. We have to double up and Im sure that will be part of the plan on defence; more risks." Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns but completed just 11 of 20 passes for 104 yards for Dallas. DeMarco Murray ran for 146 yards against the leagues worst run defence, but the Cowboys were overmatched after winning two straight. They also lost linebacker Sean Lee to another injury -- this time a neck issue after making a tackle in the third quarter. He missed the previous two games with a hamstring problem. "Certainly, it was a disappointing loss and the loss stings," coach Jason Garrett said. "The worst thing we can do is have a hangover after this loss." The game-time temperature was 8 degrees with the wind chill at minus 9, but the freezing conditions did nothing to slow either team in the early going. Garrett said both teams handled it well. Murray burned Chicago for 52 yards on six carries on the games opening possession to set up a 2-yard scoring pass from Romo to Dez Bryant, but the Bears scored just about every time they got the ball. After Bryants TD, McCown tied it with a 4-yard pass to Earl Bennett and put Chicago ahead 14-7 early in the second quarter with a 7-yard scramble, leaping at the goal line and getting spun in midair. Jason Witten tied it at 14 when he dragged Major Wright across the goal line on a 10-yard touchdown catch, but the Bears grabbed a three-point lead on Robbie Goulds 27-yard field goal with 1:33 remaining in the half. Jeffery added to it with that neat catch after Dallas was forced to punt. "Im just trying to give him a chance to go up and make the play but not really put the ball in jeopardy, so to speak," McCown said. "My part was relative easy to the catch." NOTES: The record low temperature for a Bears home game is 2 degrees against Green Bay on Dec. 22, 2008. The lowest wind chill was minus 15 against the Packers on Dec. 18, 1983. ... There was a moment of silence for Nelson Mandela before the game. Chris Stewart Wild Jersey . And, just for good measure, lets say the lottery team finishes the game short-handed because two starters come down with the very same injury. Charlie Coyle Wild Jersey . The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made. By releasing Bailey, the Broncos would open up cap space with the 12-time Pro Bowl player scheduled to make around $10 million next season. http://www.hockeywildauthority.com/nino-niederreiter-wild-jersey-c-8/ . The 24-year-old Raley was 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA for Chicago in his first two career starts after being called up from Iowa on Aug. 7.

The Marlies centre set up three goals, including the game-winner, as Toronto cruised to a 4-1 victory over the Oklahoma City Barons in American Hockey League action. Alex Stalock Wild Jersey Authentic .com) - A pair of programs shooting for their 10th win of the season get together at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, as the NC State Wolfpack tangle with 22nd-ranked West Virginia during the challenge round of the Gotham Classic.SAN ANTONIO - Kobe Bryant didnt catch Michael Jordan, though he got a victory thanks to Nick Young.Young scored 29 points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer with 7.4 seconds left in overtime, Bryant had 22 and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a shaky ending to beat the San Antonio Spurs 112-110 on Friday night.After calling his teammates soft in a profanity-laced tirade Thursday following a scrimmage, Bryant was much happier with their efforts against the defending champions.Look, we can all criticize my style of leadership all day long, Bryant said. You can sit there and its uncomfortable, its whatever, but Ive been Ive been doing that since high school. We play this game to win championships and I have five of them.Its worked pretty well throughout my career.Tim Duncan had 19 points and 18 rebounds for San Antonio (16-7), which had its six-game home winning streak snapped in a performance Gregg Popovich called pitiful.It might have been good enough without the player nicknamed Swaggy P.Im so happy it ended up in my hands, Young said. I wanted to shoot that bad, especially being on the floor watching Kobe and playing for the Lakers; nothing like those types of shots.Young was 30 feet away with Manu Ginobili in his face and the shot clock about to expire.The last 3, Manu was everything but inside his jersey and he had to adjust his shot in the air and kind of shoot around Manus hands and it goes in, Duncan said. If you put a team in a situation like that, things like that can happen. We put the blame on ourselves for the 48-50 minutes before it gets to that point.Bryant needed 30 points to tie Jordan for third place on the career scoring list, but will have to wait until Sunday in Minnesota to possibly surpass the Hall of Famer.Bryants final basket in regulation was a 3-pointer in front of Popovich as the shot clock sounded with 1:59 remaining, nodding his head in celebration as he trotted down the court with the Lakers ahead 101-92.Thats when things went wrong for Los Angeles.San Antonio scored eight points in a minute, capped by Danny Greens 3-poointer with 45 seconds left to cut Los Angeles lead to 101-100. Bryant missed his final two jumpers and Ginobili made a free throw tto tie the game with 6 seconds remaining.ddddddddddddDuncan missed a turnaround jumper at the end of regulation.Bryant missed his final five shots while going 7 of 22, giving up numerous shot opportunities in favour of firing passes to his teammates. He finished with nine assists, but many of his passes led to secondary feeds for baskets.He was doubled a lot, but I thought he played well, Los Angeles coach Byron Scott said. He didnt shoot the ball particularly well, he had some great looks that he just missed, but I think in the second half, fourth quarter and overtime, a lot of that was due to fatigue. But you know, hes a warrior, hes going to try and gut it out, look for the open man or the open shot and knock down those buckets.Jeremy Lin, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill each had 14 points for Los Angeles (7-16), which trailed 10-0.I thought the Lakers did a great job, Popovich said, leaving the postgame interview without taking any questions. They had an edge, they were aggressive on both ends of the floor, they executed well and they definitely wanted the game more than we did. It seemed more important to them than to us. I thought our performance was pitiful.TIP-INSLakers: Bryant received an enthusiastic thumbs-up from Popovich as the Lakers superstar took the court for the opening tipoff. . Bryant is tied with James Worthy for sixth on the Lakers career blocks list with 624. ...Spurs: San Antonio lost for the second time this season when its bench scores at least 40 points.

Despite their recent struggles, the Lakers are second during that span at .626 (855-511).NOT NOWDuncan surpassed Hall of Famer Jerry West of the Lakers for 18th on the career scoring list and has 25,197 points. Asked about the milestone, Duncan quickly replied, Not right now.HISTORIC FEEDScott was asked about Youngs request to provide the assist when Bryant moved past Jordan.Nick hasnt passed all year, Scott said, laughing.UP NEXTLakers: Visit Minnesota on Sunday.Spurs: Visit Denver on Sunday.
