Washington Redskins Face Must Win Game in Week 7

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

I have to imagine the Washington Redskins did not imagine they would begin the season 1-4. As bad as it is, they are fortunate to be in a division in which no team is running away with it. With that being said, Washington is definitely facing a must win game against the Chicago Bears in Week 7.

“It’s big. It’s big for us to get a win,” quarterback Robert Griffin III said referring to Sunday’s matchup against the Bears, according to Redskins.com. “There’s no doubt about it. We’ve got to go out there with the mindset that there’s no way we going to lose this game. Chicago’s going to come in here and try not to let us win that game, but it’s not even about them. They’re a great team. They’ve got a lot of great players. We’ve just got to go out there and accept the challenge, and not just go out there and compete. We’ve got to go out there to win.”

The only way the Redskins will be victorious is if Griffin and his receivers fix their communication troubles. There is no question it is a part of the game that is holding the offense back. Truthfully, it is a huge disadvantage because it is something that simply should not be occurring. The good news is it is not a major concern for the players, which usually means it is expected to be resolved.

A victory will certainly not come easy against a very talented Bears team. However, if Griffin can get it going in the passing game there is a good chance Washington will succeed against Chicago. Even though Griffin’s completion percentage is not exactly ideal, he is still ranked 10th in the league in passing yards per game (271.2). The fact that the Bears have struggled against the pass this season certainly bodes well for the Redskins’ chances.

Eddie Lacy Could Barely Handle 30-Yard Run

Eddie Lacy is a short yardage specialist, and when he breaks these long runs he definitely will come out of the game every time. This huge run setup the Packers' go-ahead touchdown and they would never look back. Lacy would get his later in the game.

Watch Redskins' Reed Pull In One-Handed Catch

The Washington Redskins look like they're on another level against the Green Bay Packers. Kirk Cousins has looked sharp, connecting with Jordan Reed on multiple occasions including this amazing one-handed catch. Later in the drive, Cousins would hit Reed again for a touchdown that gave the Redskins an 11-0 lead.
