Both Washington and Chicago sit 2 games under the .500 mark, but both are still very much alive in their respective playoff races.
Washington sits in a 3 way tie atop the NFC East standings with Phili, and New York. The Cowboys are also just 1 game behind all 3 in last place.
The Bears are likely out of the NFC North race as they sit three games behind, but they are still in a crowded Wild Card race in the NFC.
The Redskins were in the middle of one of the more boring Monday Night Football games as they and the Cowboys were tied 9-9 with under 2 minutes left.
The final couple minutes fielded a DeSean Jackson fumble setting up a Cowboys touchdown, a DeSean Jackson long touchdown reception redeeming himself, and finally a Cowboys field goal with just seconds to go.
Monday marked the first time all season Washington lost when Kirk Cousins did not throw an interception. Cousins finished 22 of 31 for 219 yards and a touchdown. Cousins was on the bad side of many offensive penalties from his offensive line that killed big plays and drives.
The defense came up huge with 3 fumble recoveries, but the offense turned those 3 turnovers into just 3 points.
Washington has lost their last 9 games on the road and are 2-7 ATS dating back to last season.
The Bears had their chance to get back to .500 after knocking off the Packers on Thanksgiving night. With a win over San Francisco on Sunday, they would have been 6-6 and still very much alive in the NFC North playoff race.
However, a 71 yard touchdown pass in overtime resulted in a 26-20 win for San Francisco.
The loss hurts even more as K Robbie Gould missed a field goal from just 36 yards out as time expired that would have gave them the win.
The Bears did play well on both sides of the ball as they ran for 170 yards along with sacking QB Blaine Gabbert 4 times. They’ll look to have that same pass rush against Kirk Cousins who has been a struggle on the road.
Chicago is just 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS at home this season.
