Entering Monday night’s down, the Chicago Bears were encompassed by question marks. Is it safe to say that they were as yet the group that completed the 2018 crusade with a 12-4 record and a NFC North division crown? The safeguard was getting the latest relevant point of interest, however Matt Nagy’s hostile unit was failing to meet expectations. The Bears just scored three of every a premiere night misfortune to the Green Bay Packers, at that point lined it up with an unsatisfying exertion against the Denver Broncos in Week 2, winning on a very late field objective notwithstanding quarterback Mitchell Trubisky tossing for a person on foot 120 yards.
However, on the off chance that the Bears made them thing going for them this week, it was the way that the Washington Redskins were on the timetable. Washington was burnt by both the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys to open the season and was vulnerable to surrendering enormous plays in the passing game. Nagy knew about that, Trubisky realized it also, and the Bears exploited to get a prevailing 31-15 triumph in a primetime spot.
Chicago’s safeguard, as it so regularly does, set the pace early. On the Redskins’ first belonging, Bears wellbeing Ha Clinton-Dix—who went through nine games with Washington last season subsequent to being exchanged by the Packers—picked off Case Keenum and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown. It was Keenum’s subsequent pass endeavor of the game and his first turnover of the period.
Be that as it may, it wouldn’t stop there. The invasion was simply starting.
With the score 7-0, Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins missed a 43-yard field objective endeavor in the subsequent quarter following a 12-play drive. The majority of the air was quickly drained out of FedEx Field. The Bears reacted by driving it down the Redskins’ throats and scoring a touchdown in 11 plays. At that point on Washington’s resulting ownership, Keenum discovered newbie wideout Terry McLaurin on a first down inclination in what seemed to give the group a hint of something better over the horizon. In any case, it was gotten back to for an unlawful move before the snap. One play later, All-Pro linebacker Khalil Mack sped around the edge and constrained a bungle somewhere down in Redskins domain, which prompted a recuperation by Akiem Hicks at Washington’s 11-yard line. The Bears again made the Redskins pay, scoring a touchdown in two plays.
Keenum tossed the second of his three capture attempts on Washington’s following belonging—this time Kyle Fuller was the recipient. Chicago’s offense found the end zone indeed, as Taylor Gabriel beat Josh Norman down the correct sideline and Trubisky hit him in walk for a 37-yard toe-tap touchdown. Gabriel had ostensibly the best round of his NFL profession, getting six goes for 75 yards and three touchdowns, all in the subsequent quarter. He turned into the primary Bears player since Gale Sayers in 1965 to score three TDs in one quarter. He could have added to that complete however left the game because of a blackout.
The barrier kicked the gathering off, yet the offense found a cadence that could extend into the remainder of the period. Trubisky completed a proficient 25-of-31 for 231 yards, three touchdowns and one capture attempt, and you could see him recovering science with his getting corps for the duration of the night.
The Bears hopped out to a directing 28-0 lead and held off a late-game flood by the Redskins to improve to 2-1 on the season. Washington is currently 1-9 on Monday Night Football under lead trainer Jay Gruden, whose seat is getting more sweltering and more smoking with each misfortune. At 0-3—the most noticeably terrible record in the NFC—the Dwayne Haskins serenades are beginning to warmth up from the Redskins fanbase, yet Gruden plans to stay with Keenum as the group’s beginning quarterback until further notice.
One splendid spot on Washington’s program this season has been McLaurin, who completed with six gets for 70 yards and a touchdown, turning into the primary player in NFL history with at least five gatherings and a touchdown in every one of his group’s initial three games.
Concerning the Bears, this game gives them an increase in certainty on the two sides of the ball. Mack and the vaunted protective gathering completed the night with five takeaways, in the wake of coming into the game with only one on the season. Furthermore, Trubisky’s faultfinders need to back off for in any event this week, as the offense figured out how to stretch out beyond a Week 4 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
On the off chance that their offense can keep on benefiting from the barrier’s vitality the manner in which it did against Washington, the Bears stay a troublesome group to beat and one that could be back in the playoff blend at season’s end.
