What we learned from Bears’ victory over Redskins – NFL.com

This is another helpful add-on.

Thanks to five takeaways, the Chicago Bears (2-1) got up early and held on late to defeat the Washington Redskins (0-3), 31-15, on “Monday Night Football” in Week 3.
Here’s what we learned:
1. In Chicago, as the defense goes, the team goes. That has been the way of things for decades, and it was true again Monday night. After the Bears opened the game with a long drive ending in a punt, Chicago intercepted Case Keenum on Washington’s first drive, with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix housing the pick for six. From there, the Bears were playing from a position of strength and never really let Washington back in the game. The ‘Skins’ offensive line was no match for Khalil Mack, whose first half included two sacks and two forced fumbles (plus, one of each called back by penalty). Mack wasn’t the only one feasting as Clinton-Dix followed up his first quarter interception with another in the third and Danny Trevathan earned a sack and a key fourth-quarter forced fumble of Keenum with D.C. mounting a comeback. Chicago closed the game with five takeaways and 24 points off of those takeaways. After keeping the Packers close and surviving a tight win over the Broncos, Chicago’s Monday night mauling in Landover proved the Bears’ defense can still dictate results against wholly inferior opponents — at least for a half.
