Bears vs. Redskins. Offensive Grade analysis for the Redskins win at home over the Chicago Bears.
Quarterback: Robert Griffin III sent a message early that he was going to be a force in the running game, as he gained 84 yards off the read-option and off of scrambles. He looked fluid and ran without hesitation. But most importantly, RGIII looked sharp passing the football, and even completed his longest pass of the season, with a 45 yard TD pass to Aldrick Robinson. Quarterback grade – A
Running backs: Alfred Morris had 95 yards rushing on 19 carries, and provided consistent yardage on most of his carries. Roy Helu added 41 yards on 11 carries, and scored 3 TD’s. And all though the running backs didn’t play a huge role in the passing game, they ran hard and helped the Redskins control the time of possession. Running backs grade – A
Receivers: The Wide Receivers played much better than they did against Dallas. They did a better job of getting open, and got deep with the Aldrick Robinson TD. But the best target for RGIII wasn’t a receiver, it was a TE. Rookie Jordan Reed had his best performance of the season, and gets better and better with every game. The Bears had no answers for him. And outstanding job blocking down field by the receivers too. Receivers grade – B+
Offensive Line: The offensive line Opened up holes for the running game and gave RGIII time to throw in the passing game. Although the Bears defensive line was racked with injuries, the Redskins O-line did what they needed to do for the majority of the game and allowed the play makers to make plays. O-Line Grade – B+
Offense Game Grade: A – The most complete performance of the season for the Redskins offense. They executed well both running and passing.
