REDSKINS VS BEARS

Venue: FedExField | Start: 10:15am AEST

Woe is Washington when the Redskins see a Monday game date on the schedule. The franchise is 1-16 on “Monday Night Football” dating to 1998 and after an 0-2 start, it could get ugly in DC sooner rather than later for Jay Gruden & Company. Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky completed the one pass that counted most at Denver last week and set up Eddy Pineiro for a game-winner over the Broncos. Trubisky has been erratic but head coach Matt Nagy was dialed into the run side of his play sheet and got rookie David Montgomery going in Week 2 after leaning on Trubisky too heavily in the opener. The Redskins didn’t hold up to the multi-faceted offense of the Cowboys and Washington’s offensive line has been a serious source of concern for quarterback Case Keenum and running back Adrian Peterson. Washington is averaging 2.5 yards per carry on the season. Keenum has five touchdowns and no interceptions despite a modest cast of receivers. Chicago’s secondary has multiple ballhawks, and Keenum must get balance from his running game to make it out of Week 3 unscathed.

Win: Bears
Margin: Bears 1-13
Line: Chicago -4
Total Points: over 41.5
