Just after Martellus Bennett scored a go-ahead touchdown for the Chicago Bears, the Redskins answered right back. Roy Helu ran one in for a Redskins touchdown, but more importantly, the lead. It was Helu’s third of the game.
Here’s the GIF:
Not only was this he go-ahead touchdown, but it was the game winner as well, as Washington won by the final score of 45-41. The Chicago Bears are now at 4-3 on the year, while the Redskins are sitting at 2-4. This game was up and down the whole way through, with injuries plaguing the Bears early, and great plays leading to big scores for both teams.
We saw Jay Cutler leave the game with a groin injury in the first quarter, and not return. We also got to witness history as Devin Hester scored his 19th return for a touchdown, tying Deion Sanders for most all time in NFL history. We also saw two final drives from each team that cam down to he wire, but ultimately the team that played better prevailed, as the Washington Redskins will leave FedEx Field with the W.
Chicago will play the Green Bay Packers on Monday night in Lambeau Field on November 4, and the Washington Redskins will travel to Denver to play Peyton Manning and the Broncos.
