Cutler, Bears offense searching for spark

The Chicago Bears envisioned a deep, explosive offense making opponents miserable as they piled up the yards and the points.

This is not what they had in mind.

The Bears (2-1) will try to get their offense going again and shake off two bad performances when they visit the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.

Their offense ranks 27th overall and they're 28th in passing. All of this comes after a busy offseason and a promising opener against Indianapolis.

Coach Lovie Smith says the Bears are simply not going to score "50 points, rush for 300 yards and pass for 500" every week, but they need to perform better on offense than they have of late.
