Washington Commanders (2-4) at Chicago Bears (2-4), Commanders win 12-7
Another Thursday Night Football game, another mediocre effort. Everyone lamented the Colts-Broncos 12-9 slugfest last week, but this game had even less scores.
Brian Robinson Jr. obviously gained the faith of the Commanders’ coaches after his nine-carry debut last week. Robinson began, received the ball on the opening two plays of the game, and came on late to help Washington win 12-7. He ran the ball 17 times for 60 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown midway through the third quarter. Above all, he had more speed than you might anticipate from a guy who was wounded many times in the leg in late August.
This Bears-Commanders game may have put football back 50 years, since neither team seemed to desire to win.
Lions BYE Week
Only five games into Dan Campbell’s second season, Detroit Lions supporters’ faith in the club has collapsed. Fans’ dissatisfaction with the team is understandable. The Lions showed at the beginning of the season that they were prepared to compete, particularly as the number one offense, until they got to Foxborough and were everything but competitive. Following seeing a glimpse of what this squad is capable of, expectations soared, and taking such a significant step back has many fans anxious. The Lions currently at the bottom of the NFC North with a 1-4 record, hopefully this bye week will pull the team back together.
