The Redskins looked well on their way to earning their first road win of the season as they jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but a late touchdown for the Chicago Bears leaves the score 14-7 at halftime.
The Redskins got off to an impressive start as their offense marched down the field for two touchdowns on the team's first two possessions. Alfred Morris, who had only six carries last week against Dallas, had seven carries on the team's first drive and capped off the Redskins' 15-play, 80-yard march with a one-yard touchdown run. It is his first rushing touchdown of the season.
Jordan Reed looked incredible in the game's first two quarters, hauling in five passes for 69 yards.
For much of the first half, the Redskins defense was able to shutdown Jay Cutler and the Bears offense, but Chicago finally found success late in the half going 58 yards in five plays. Cutler found Alshon Jeffery in the end zone to cut the Redskins' lead in half just before both teams headed for the locker room. Before that drive, the Redskins had only allowed 118 yards of offense.
Both Terrance Knighton and Trent Murphy have a sack for the Redskins. Murphy also has a fumble recovery.
In injury news, Redskins tight end Derek Carrier left the game in the first quarter with a knee sprain. He was carted off the field to receive tests and the team announced he was done for the game.
