Commander vs. Bears Goal, Takeaway: Washington beat Chicago after a four-game hitting streak thanks to a goal line stand.

Carson Wentz and Washington Commanders returned to the win row with a thrilling ending Thursday night when they defeated the Chicago Bears 12-7. The Bears had a chance to score a touchdown on their fourth goal with only a few seconds left, but Darnell Mooney couldn’t get Justin Fields’ pass from the goal line. Carson Wentz completed 12 of 22 passes over 99 yards. Zero touchdown and zero interception. Justin Fields completed 14 of 27 passes over 190 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, and also rushed 88 yards. Rookie running back Brian Robinson made his first start in Washington, D.C., rushing 60 yards 17 times to score the winning run. Looking at how Washington and Chicago went through the first and second quarters, it seemed unlikely that they would see a touchdown in their second Thursday night game in a row. The only goal scored in the first half came from a Commanders Field goal, the result of a 57-yard drive, nine plays involving 32 penalty yards. Early in the third quarter, Fields scored the first touchdown of the game by hitting Dante Pettis with a deep pass from 40 yards. Wentz then went to work with a sense of urgency, moving 65 yards in 13 plays. However, Scott Turner’s attack stopped in the red zone and Commander had to be content with the game’s second field goal. Washington’s attack was sparse, so the special team had to come at a critical time. Punter Tress Way put the ball deep and Bears comeback Velus Jones blocked the punt just yards from his end zone. Washington got it back, and Robinson punched the first all-time run after two games to take a 12-7 lead. After David Montgomery’s 13-yard rush, Fields scrambled 39 yards to reach the Washington 5-yard line. Chicago tried 4 plays to throw a punch, but failed. Let’s see what happened in Chicago on Thursday night. Why Commander Wins From the box score alone, it doesn’t look like Washington won this game. That’s because the commanders came out big at important moments. The special team took back the muff punt that led to Washington’s only touchdown in the fourth quarter, and the defense shone at the crucial moment later. The Bears scored just seven points on Thursday night. There should have been more, but these Commanders defenses stayed strong as you progress through the game with your back against the wall. Chicago had four chances to secure five yards in the fourth quarter and win, but they didn’t. Darrick Forrest broke the end zone pass with a run on third, and Benjamin St-Juste called for a four-stroke run with a defensive stop. Why The Bears Lose The Bears still scored 5 fewer points, despite a total attack range of 392 yards compared to Commander’s 214 yards. Do you know what it got? Last week’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, the Bears went 2-2 in the red zone, but lost 0-3 in the red zone against New. The York Giants played two games ago. The Bears took the Red Zone struggle to a new level by going 0-3 on Thursday night’s 5 yard line at INSIDE WASHINGTON. you’re right. The Bears had the ball three times within the Commanders’ five-yard line on Thursday night and were off to zero. Fields threw an intercept on the first trip inside number 5. The Bears stopped at fourth base on the one-yard line in the second quarter and Chicago failed to score a game-winning score in the final verse. Seriously, the Bears would be 4-2, not 2-4, if they knew what to do in the red zone. There is a general conversation about the Bears’ offense and how they deal with Fields as a quarterback, but this game boils down to red zone performance. Turning Point The game reached the finals. In the fourth goal, St-Just made this spot for Mooney. The Bears’ wide out seemed to cross the goal line for a moment, but he did not secure possession. As Mooney descends, he catches a pass but goes out of range and does not cross the goal line. There is a saying that football is an inch game. Gameplay The Bears would not have had a chance to win their 4th goal without this play. With one minute and six seconds left in the game, Fields scrambled 39 yards to catch the 5-yard line from Chicago to Washington. This was a pretty surprising sequence that ended up being insignificant because the Bears failed in the red zone. Next ScheduleThe Commanders will return to Washington next week to host Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers next Sunday. Packers hosts the New York Jets this weekend. The Bears will also be in the prime time spotlight next week. They travel to Foxboro to play against the New England Patriots in “Monday Night Football”. Bill Belichick will face his former team at the Cleveland Browns this Sunday.
