The game will kick off in a few minutes
Nice run by RGIII to get things going and a deep pass to Jordan Reed as well.
The Redskins come out on top for once, but only with a field goal and not a touchdown. The passing game is looking good to start out though.
The Redskins go with the pooch kick on the kickoff, possibly to keep it away from Devin Hester. But why not just kick it out of the end zone?
The Bears go three and out, but pin the Redskins deep at their own one yard line off the punt.
RGIII and Pierre Garcon don’t seem to be on the same page lately.
DeAngelo Hall with the nice play on third down. Way to stall the Bears drive and hold them to a field goal!
RGIII never saw Tillman dropping that zone, it was a bad read.
Jordan Reed is a good young player, but he’s been fragile too. Hopefully he’ll be OK and get back in the game.
Lance Briggs is laying the wood down on these hits. He hasn’t slowed down a bit.
Slide RGIII, slide!
If they can ever get it going, Roy Helu Jr., and Alfred Morris will make a great 1-2 punch.
Nice drive by the skins, converting on third downs and coming back from penalties too. I like how Kyle Shanahan is attacking the Bears defense.
Pick Six by Orakpo! If you get pressure on Cutler, he’s apt to make mistakes. High throw.
Another three and out for the Bears, DeAngelo Hall making another big play. The Redskins defense looking good so far.
Big hit on Cutler by Chris Baker! Looks like Cutler took a knee to the midsection.
The Redskins can’t afford to let McCown play well, they have to come after him hard!
The Redskins need to take advantage of Cutler being out of the game.
More pathetic special teams play for the Redskins as Devin Hester makes them pay with a punt return for a touchdown.
If the Redskins can clean up their special teams and turn overs they might have shot at turning things around.
If not for the interception and the punt return for a TD, this might be a blow out right now.
I have a feeling this game is gointo have to be an ugly win for the Redskins. The backup QB is in, and he’s moving the football for them.
The skins dodged a bullet there, as Robbie Gould missed the short field goal. Maybe the Mojo is back on the Redskins side.
Poor execution on that drive for the Redskins. Not sure why RGIII didn’t get the first down on the run on first down.
London Fletcher was out of position on that play, and Forte made the Redskins pay for it.
I’m still trying to figure out why Joshua Morgan is returning kicks for the Redskins?
What an accurate pass by RGIII to Robinson!
The no-huddle offense gets the Redskins going and Roy Helu Jr. brings a good change of pace again for the TD.
Now Jim Haslett needs to make some adjustments on defense. The Bears have adapted from the first half.
Gumbs with the de-cleater on special teams!!!!
Josh McCown’s running ability is catching the Redskins off guard.
Just Morris being Morris right there!
It’s about time! The Redskins hit a deep pass, as RGIII hits Aldrick Robsinson with the bomb! It probably should have been intercepted, but we’ll take it!
Well at least the defense held them to a field goal. No choice but to keep scoring and try to win in a shootout.
Another bullet dodged on special teams by the Redskins as the bears are off sides on the on sides kick.
Again, I’m still trying to figure out why Joshua Morgan is returning kicks?
With all the injured players out for the Bears, the Redskins have to win this game. No excuses.
Jim Haslett has no answers for Josh McCown rightg now.
What throw under pressure by RGIII, and a great catch by Garcon!
