The first half was marred with turnovers. The Washington Redskins came into the night with zero turnovers through the first two weeks. They had three by halftime, and five by the end of the game.
The Chicago Bears probably should have won by more points, but they had their own issues in the second half. The Bears led 28-3 at half, and only scored three the rest of the way.
Mitch Trubisky and the Bears offense was good enough to score 31 points, but when it comes against a team that has given up 32 and 31 points to Philadelphia and Dallas, is that really impressive at all? Or just expected?
Well, that question will never really be answered. However, the problems with the Redskins are much larger than those of the Bears.
Chicago needs the offense to start clicking, and Trubisky needs to start making better (and quicker) decisions. The Bear defense is fine.
For Washington, the offense is pretty inept and the defense is terrible. Granted the ‘Skins defense is dealing with injuries, but they really are struggling.
It looks like it might be Dwayne Haskins time in D.C. as Washington falls to 0-3 and the Bears improve to 2-1.
Chicago 31 – Washington 15
