Last week’s Thursday Night Football game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos didn’t score a single TD, and it looked like tonight’s game was heading in that direction after a 3-0 1st half. The Bears scored the game’s first TD, but the Commanders came back with a field goal and a touchdown in the 4th quarter. The TD was Brian Robinson’s first of his NFL career. Washington had the chance to make it an 8 point game with 1:49 left in the game, but Joey Slye missed the 48 yard FG attempt. The Bears got the ball back and a Justin Fields run took them down to the 6 yard line. The Bears took it to 4th down, but were stopped, giving the Commanders the victory. They are now 2-4 and heading back to FedEx Field to host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
