Bears capitalize on interception, take early lead vs. Washington

The Redskins’ offense got off to a strong start Sunday vs. Chicago, but mistakes have been the story since, allowing Chicago to take a 10-3 first-quarter lead at FedEx Field.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III starred on Washington’s first drive, rushing for 23 yards off right end and connecting with tight end Jordan Reed on a 38-yard reception. However, the drive stalled, with tailback Alfred Morris‘ fumbled handoff a key setback, and Washington would settle for a field goal to take a 3-0 lead a little more than three minutes into the game.

However, the Bears’ special teams and defense responded with a couple of big plays. Punter Adam Podlesh helped flip field position with a 65-yard punt downed at the Washington 1. The Redskins went three-and-out, and the Bears would take over at the Washington 47. The Bears would drive into range for a field goal to tie the game.

On Washington’s next series, Griffin was intercepted by Bears cornerback Charles Tillman, whose return set up Chicago on Washington’s 10-yard-line. Two plays later, Bears RB Matt Forte rushed off the right side for a two-yard TD, leaping over a defender on his way to the endzone in a stylish run.

    Oh my God! Charles Tillman just did a DIRTY hit on RGIII!!! If the NFL doesn’t fine Tillman tommorow north of 20,000 dollars, then it’s CLEAR what the league office thinks of RGIII and the Redskins!!! Oh my god!!! #FineTillmanNOW

    Attention Bears opponents:

    The key to beating the Bears is DON’T TURN THE BALL OVER. The Bears can’t beat you if you don’t beat yourselves.

    Jeez, you’d think these teams would’ve discovered that by now.
