The Redskins (3-3) lost to Indianapolis 24-27, at home, and drop to third in the NFC East. QB Donovan McNabb made 29 of 45 passes for 246 yards with one TD, but two interceptions, and RB Ryan Torian was great with 20 carries for 100 yards with two TD’s. WR Santana Moss made eight catches for 77 yards and Keiland Williams added a TD. Their defense had three chances at easy interceptions, but failed to do so. Allowing Peyton Manning, or any quarterback, a second chance is unacceptable. TE Chris Cooley said Monday that he kept playing after suffering a concussion last week, before he pulled himself out. He’s currently listed as questionable. Cooley has 28 catches for 340 yards and two touchdowns this season. He and Santana Moss have become Donovan McNabb's primary targets, but Davis, a third-year pro, would start if Cooley can't play.The Redskins are ranked 15th overall on offense (336ypg) with a ninth ranked pass game (244ypg) and an 25th ranked ground game (92ypg). They have NFL’s worst ranked defense (420ypg), with the NFL’s second worst ranked pass rush (298ypg) and a 24th rush defense (182ypg). The Redskins defense allows the 14th most amount of points per-game (19.8).
The Bears (4-2) lost to Seattle 20-23, at home, but still sit atop the NFC North. QB Jay Cutler completed 17 of 39 passes for 290 yards, mainly to WR Johnny Knox, who made five catches for 120 yards. They gained a low 61 yards on the ground. Their O-line was nowhere to be found as Cutler was sacked six times. Coach Lovie Smith needs to take control back from Offensive co-coordinator Mike Marty , Smith allowed Marty to make 80 percent of the Bears' plays passes, despite having a recently concussed quarterback. The Bears called just 12 handoffs. The Bears are ranked 29th overall on offense (285ypg) with a 22nd ranked pass game (192ypg) and a 26th ranked running game (92ypg). They have eighth best ranked defense overall (304pg), with the third best ranked rush defense (82ypg) and an 18th ranked pass rush (220ypg). The Bears defense allows the third least amount of points per-game (16.2). If Cutler is as brilliant as Martz claims he is, he's bright enough to be trusted with the autonomy of any offense. The Redskins have the NFL's lowest-ranked defense, so this represents an ideal chance for the Bears to let Cutler freelance more if it helps increase his freedom in the pocket. Right now he's a prisoner of ineptitude that seems as much mental as physical.
