XX Our Washington Redskins won their first road game of the season by “bear-ly” edging the Chicago Bears by 3 points. Redskins dominated the first quarter and had a 14 to 0 lead before the Bear defense got tough. Not a lot of “style points” to discuss and it was a close, hard fought defensive game.
Often in a loss there are so many positive aspects of the game that it makes losing a lot more easy, and Sunday’s game was a good example. Several facts about the game give me reason to be proud about the team’s performance::
Washington proved it can compete with any team
The Redskins defense played well considering a injured secondary
Our defense held Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to zero touchdown passes and intercepted him twice
The Redskins defensive effort caused and recovered a fumble
Three total turnovers for the Skins defense, plus the sacks and constant QB pressure
