Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - The Chicago defense intercepted Tony Romo five times, two of which were returned for touchdowns, and the Bears routed the Dallas Cowboys, 34-18, on Monday night.

Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs each took back interceptions for TDs for Chicago (3-1), which defeated the St. Louis Rams last Sunday.

Jay Cutler threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns on 18-of-24 efficiency and Brandon Marshall gained 138 yards receiving with a score on seven catches in the victory.

Matt Forte, a game-time decision due to a high ankle sprain suffered during the Rams contest, carried the ball 13 times for 52 yards.

Romo, who matched a career-high with his five interceptions, registered 307 yards and a score through the air on 31-of-43 passing for the Cowboys (2-2), who defeated the Tampa Buccaneers last Sunday.

Jason Witten caught 13 balls for 112 yards and a score, while Dez Bryant hauled in eight passes for 105 yards in the setback.
