BEST BETS

Bears 4-2 at Redskins 1-4

 

LINE: Even

The Bears come out of hibernation after a 10-day rest to face a struggling Washington bunch. While the Redskins look nothing like last year’s surprise squad, they could slowly be coming back to form. Mike Shanahan teams love to run in order to set up the pass. Chicago’s run-stop unit is currently a decimated group and the backups have limited capabilities. You know there is trouble when the Giants’ fire hydrant like RB Brandon Jacobs ran for 106 yards on these cubbies. With Robert Griffin’s leash being loosened and complemented by Alfred Morris’ running skills, Chicago could be in for a long afternoon. In addition, the Bears failed to get to the very exposed Eli Manning in last Thursday’s game. As bad as Washington’s been, it still ranks fourth in total offence at almost 400 yards per game and 10th in rushing. A couple of wins puts the Redskins back in the race but it has to start here and we’re confident
