Three takeaways from Redskins Week 3 loss to Bears on Monday Night Football
The Washington Redskins were beaten on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears. This could be a franchise-changing moment for the team.
The Redskins suffered a very bad loss on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears. Facing a Bears team that had struggled badly on offense to start the year, the Redskins had major issues on both sides of the ball and if not for a late-game push, they would’ve been blown out.
On defense, the Redskins allowed Mitchell Trubisky to throw three first-half touchdowns to Taylor Gabriel to build an insurmountable 28-3 lead. On offense, Case Keenum was picked off on three occasions, fumbled three times, and didn’t have time to make downfield plays until the fourth quarter. And the run game? It was non-existent. The Redskins were able to cut into the lead to create a 31-15 loss, but it still wasn’t a pretty game for the team.
With that ugly loss in the books, the Redskins are now 0-3. There are massive concerns at quarterback and Keenum could be on a short leash moving forward with Dwayne Haskins and a healthy Colt McCoy waiting in the wings. And elsewhere, there is little certainty about how this team will look as shake-ups could come over the course of the next 24 hours.
We’ll soon see what happens with Washington, but here’s a look at the three biggest takeaways from the Redskins’ loss to the Bears.
