Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears (0-4) are on the road to take on Sam Howell and the Washington Commanders (2-2) at FedEx Field to kick off Week 5 of the NFL season.
The Bears were narrowly defeated by the Denver Broncos in their Week 4 matchup and will be looking for their first win of the season against the Commanders, who also lost a close one to the Philadelphia Eagles last week.
Here are the top moments!
Chicago Bears at Washington Commanders
Getting behind ’em
Two plays after Fields couldn’t connect with wide receiver Darnell Mooney, the quarterback hit a wide-open DJ Moore downfield for a 58-yard gain. Three plays later, Moore got behind the Washington secondary once again, hauling in a 20-yard touchdown pass.
Big run sets up FG
After forcing a Washington three-and-out, Chicago put together another scoring drive. A 34-yard run from Khalil Herbert got the Bears into the red zone. That said, they were held to a 22-yard field goal from Cairo Santos.
If you really want Moore …
After Washington went three-and-out once again, Chicago went right back to work. On the first play of the drive, Moore stayed on his feet and kept chugging down the sideline for a 39-yard gain. Five plays later, Fields hit Moore in the back-corner of the end zone for their second touchdown connection.
Joey Slye got Washington on the board with a 51-yard field goal, which Chicago countered with a 36-yard field goal from Santos. Then Washington gave the ball back to Chicago on the first play of the ensuing possession when defensive back Greg Stroman Jr. intercepted Howell.
Stay tuned for updates!
Honoring a legend
Shortly before kickoff, the Bears organization announced that former linebacker and Hall of Famer Dick Butkus, one of the greatest players in NFL history, had died at age 80.
Both teams arrived in style ahead of Thursday’s NFC tilt.
