About This Commanders-Bears Game

The Washington Commanders and Chicago Bears both enter this game struggling and hoping that a win here will help propel their season into a positive direction. The situation is especially dire for the 1-4 Commanders while the 2-3 Bears can improve to .500 with a solid performance at Soldier Field.

Washington opened its campaign with a 28-22 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars but bring a four-game losing streak into this primetime contest. There is also some team turmoil after head coach Ron Rivera said that “quarterback” is the main reason why other NFC East teams are ahead of them. Recent and ex-Washington quarterback Alex Smith had a sharp retort, saying that blame should be “spread around,” not placed solely on Carson Wentz.

The Bears had been 2-1 but also bring a losing streak into this matchup. Theirs is at two games. However, Chicago is 2-0 at home and 0-3 away from the Windy City, so, if that form continues, the Bears will in fact claim this game and return to the .500 mark.

There was some self-blame for Chicago’s last defeat, a 29-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in which the Bears were driving for a tying touchdown in the final minutes before wide receiver Ihmir Smith-Marsette fumbled. By his own words, he should have gone out of bounds instead of attempting to gain a few more yards.

Pretty much everyone ranks these two teams near the bottom of the pack but the Bears are universally considered the stronger team. It’s strange then that sportsbooks have this game as even or, at most, Bears -1.0. (Moneyline for both teams is roughly -110.)

The total (over/under) has fluxuated quite a lot. It opened around 40 but has dropped to as low as 38. The consensus is for Chicago to win by a score of around 19-20.
