The Chicago Bears play the Washington Redskins in their last game before their bye week.
The Bears enter this game with a 4-2 record while being tied with the Detroit Lions for first place in the NFC North division. Though, the Lions hold the tie-breaker over the Bears.
Meanwhile, the Redskins enter this game with a record of 1-4 but are only two wins behind the division leaders in the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.
The Bears and Redskins have been cut from the same cloth this season. Each team features a struggling defense that has put the offense in a position to carry the team. For the Bears, quarterback Jay Cutler has shown an evolution this season as he appears to be buying into the philosophy from the new coaching staff. The Redskins, however, are beginning to see signs of the Robert Griffin III that led the team to the playoffs before tearing his ACL.
With this in mind, Da Windy City staff predicts the outcome of the game between the Bears and Redskins tomorrow.
- Brandon Cain: Matt Forte gets his first 100 yard rushing game against the 27th team in the NFL against the run, Jay Cutler throws for 200 plus yards and the Bears defensive gets two sacks and a turnover in a 31-14 victory heading into their bye week.
- Brandon Bender: It’s been a disappointing season for RGIII and the Redskins, and I think they will continue to slide. Bears win 31-16.
- Dylan Burn: I like the Bears over the Redskins 27-14 even though RG3 showed flashes of his old self on Sunday Night against the Cowboys.
- Jordan Campbell: Sunday’s game will be a microcosm of the remainder of the Bears season. Meaning, the Bears offense will be tasked with being the difference in the game. The thing that should be most concerning about this game for Bears fans is the Redskins rushing offense. The Bears have struggled on defense against the run for most of the season. Those struggles likely will continue on Sunday. That being said, Jay Cutler and the Bears offense will be the difference in this game. Bears win 31-27.
