The 4th quarter of the Bears – Redskins game looked a lot like the end of a preseason game, where a lot of backups manned key positions.  It looked like some offensive players were going to have to go both ways with some backups to the backups even missed some time.  Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman were the most notable key defenders who didn’t finish the game.  As a result, the defense couldn’t stop the Redskins down the stretch as RGIII, rookie Jordan Reed and backup running back Roy Helu powered the Redskins past the beleaguered Bears defense 45-41.

Give the Bears offense – and Josh McCown in particular – a lot of credit.  They went toe to toe with the Redskins with starting quarterback Jay Cutler in the locker room from midway through the second quarter with what’s been called a groin injury.
