Scoring Summary: Redskins 9, Bears 7

The Bears offense managed just one touchdown against Washington's defense and three field goals by John Hall proved to be enough.

SECOND QUARTER: K John Hall 40-yard field goal at 7:34. Nathan Vasher looked to have his second interception of the half, but a pass interference call on Mike Green negated a 55-yard return that would have given the Bears the ball at the Washington 18. Instead, the 36-yard penalty put the Redskins in field goal range. Drive: 6 plays, 43 yards in 1:49. Redskins 3, Bears 0.

Hall 43-yard field goal at 1:00. Being on the field for nearly 18 minutes in the first half wore on the defense. Clinton Portis was held in check for most of the first half, but carried three times for 17 yards sandwiched between a 23-yard completion from Mark Brunell to Chris Cooley. Drive: 8 plays 47 yards in 2:17. Redskins 6, Bears 0.

THIRD QUARTER: RB Thomas Jones one-yard touchdown run at 11:28. The Bears were not able to get anything going in the first half, but on the board with a helping hand from the special teams. Brendon Ayanbadejo forced a fumble on the second half kickoff that Joe Odom recovered. Kyle Orton completed third down passes to Muhsin Muhammad and Justin Gage that kept the chains moving. Drive: 7 plays, 23 yards in 3:27. PAT by Doug Brien was good. Bears 7, Redskins 6.

Hall 19-yard field goal at 2:54. The Bears lead was short lived, as the Redskins went back in front on the following possession. Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts combined for six carries for 37 yards, while Brunell completed all four of his passes for 23 yards. Drive: 15 plays, 63 yards in 8:29. Redskins 9, Bears 7.
