Chicago intercepted Tony Romo five times, returning two for touchdowns, as the Bears roughed up Dallas 34-18 Monday night at Cowboys Stadium. Jay Cutler also threw two touchdowns.

The loss drops the Cowboys (2-2) into a three-way tie with the New York Giants and Washington for second in the NFC East behind Philadelphia (3-1). The Cowboys have a bye next week. Dallas returns to action at Baltimore Oct. 14.

The five interceptions off Romo tied for the most in his career. He was intercepted five times at Buffalo in 2007, but Dallas won that game 25-24.

"The story of the game was turnovers," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "They made the key plays."

Chicago led 10-7 at the half.

Cutler threw a 34-yard touchdown to Devin Hester to make it 17-7. The game-breaking play came on the next series when Romo was stripped of the ball by Henry Melton and the ball popped into the air and into the hands of Lance Briggs, who returned the interception 74 yards for a touchdown to make it 24-7.

Dallas never recovered.
