Bears’ Brandon Marshall said they beat the Cowboys before the game

The Dallas Cowboys traveled to Chicago to take on the Bears in chilly temperatures. During warm-ups Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall realized the Cowboys were already beat.

“We beat Dallas last night before the game started,” Marshall said Tuesday during the “Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 1000. “When it was [receiver] Alshon [Jeffery], myself, Earl Bennett and some of the other guys outside warming up pregame, there was only a handful of Dallas players. I looked around and I said, ‘Man, we’ve got these guys.’”

“The elements were already in their heads,” Marshall said. “So pregame, I believe that we won. I’m pretty sure there [would have been] more guys out there if it wasn’t colder, but they weren’t out there. For us, once you start putting on sleeves and start doing things differently, you buy into the elements and the game is over.”

That could be true but Cowboys wide receiver says the cold wasn’t an issue.

“I don’t think the weather as too much of a factor,” Bryant said.
