Here we go with a Week 7 trip to DC to
A great win versus the G-men that should have not had me on edge in the 4th quarter, because it should have been over in the 1st. Thank you Tim Jennings!!! On to this week against another NFC Least opponent in the Washington Native Americans (you won’t get me, Bob Costas). RG3 certainly poses a dual threat that the Bears haven’t seen this year, but I think they are up to the task with their quick linebacking core. The bigger issue is making sure they don’t let Alfred Morris run all over them. This will be a road test for sure, but I think the Bears will pass with flying colors, because I think the Washington secondary is ripe for the taking…Me’Angelo Hall will get torched all day by whomever he lines up with. I am taking the Bears BIG heading into the bye week.
Bears 31 – Native Americans 13
I don’t see this one going as easily as most Bears fans. This game plays right into the Redskins’ hands. They will run the ball early and often against the Bears’ porous rush defense. If the Bears don’t take the ball away, it could be a little scary. The good news is, the Redskins’ defense is pretty horrible too. I’m banking on Matt Forte to have a big day. Devin Hester and special teams make the difference.
Bears 40 – ‘Skins 33
Heather Pink (4-1)
Both sides of the Bears team showed up to play on Thursday night against the New York Giants for the win. As for the Redskins, they’ve been totally unimpressive thus far. Robert Griffin III looks nowhere near where he was last year, hence their offense is out of whack. If the Bears offense can power through and continue to grow, I don’t think it will even be a contest. What I feel is most important is that the Bears need to go out on a huge high before the bye week.
Bears 31 – Redskins 20
The Bears got the bounce-back victory that they desperately needed against the Giants, however it came at a price. Brandon Jacobs shredded the defense and exposed the gaping holes in the middle of the defensive line. Stephen Paea will need to make his presence known on Sunday and help shut down the Redskins’ running game, led by Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris. If the Bears can get a victory and some help from the Cincinnati Bengals, they could be looking at sole first place atop the NFC North heading into the bye week.
