If you Bet on NFL football then you need to know the early Vegas odds at this time was not available at the time of this writing more than likely the result of team injuries that could be influential in the outcome of this game. The 2 teams are both still under .500, but still have playoff hopes for the NFC playoff this season. Both teams have lacked consistency this season, but each have a shot this Sunday for a win a come closer to a playoff spot.
The fans of the 5-7 Redskins of Washington are aware their team got smashed by the Cowboys of Dallas on MNF in a difficult to swallow loss, as they lost the game as a result of a field goal, after most of the 1st 3 plus quarters the only score were from field goals.
After that loss which was the 1st of the season for QB K. Cousins and also the 1st home loss for the Redskins since their season opener loss. In this game QB Cousins had a decent game as he completed 22 of his 31 passing attempts and 1 TD, and with little help from the other offensive players, and the fact that they had several drives halted as a result of team penalties.
However the WR D. Jackson did well as he had 6 receptions for 82 yards and the teams only TD in that game, but also had a costly fumble that led to the 1st Dallas TD. Defensively the Redskins were able to contain the offense of Dallas, and forced 3 fumbles in the game of which they recovered all 3. Unfortunately the fumbles only brought about field goals and no TD’s. Thus, the Redskins need to improve their Red Zone appearances.
If they don’t resolve that issue before this game in Chicago if they intend on keeping their playoff chances alive and well. The Skins this season have lost their ultimate 9 road games.
For the fans of the 5-7 Bears of Chicago your team also had a disappointing lost last Sunday as they came up short in their loss to the 49’ers of San Francisco losing 26-20. That loss was the result of an OT pass reception for 41 yards.
The Bears QB J. Cutler struggled in this game as he only completed 18 of his 31 pass attempts for 203 yards with no TD’s and 1 interception. Their FG kicker R. Gould also had a bad day missing 2 FG’s, one of which was a 36 yard kick that would have given the Bears the win as time expired in regulation time.
Yes, on the bright side your team had 4 different RB’s compiled some 172 yards rushing and that include also 4 carries by QB Cutler. Then defensively they sacked the 49’ers QB Gabbert some 4 times in the game.
Yes, your Redskins have struggled on the road game this season, but the Bears have not been much better at home at Soldier Field, as Chicago has only won 1 game of the 6 game played there.
The sportsbook prediction for this NFC game is that the Bears of Chicago have enough offense in this game to beat the Redskins 24-20!
