Redskins Vs. Bears Final Score: Washington Falls Just Short In Chicago, 33-31

The Washington Redskins almost completed an amazing comeback against the Chicago Bears, only to fall short by a score of 33-31 thanks to a 57-yard Robbie Gould field goal in the final minute.

Down 30-10 in the 4th quarter, Kirk Cousins was sensational down the stretch. The Michigan State product could seemingly do no wrong, throwing three touchdown passes in the final quarter to put Washington up 31-30 with just under two minutes remaining.

Overall, Cousins threw for 264 yards on 18-of-23 passing in his second half action. Rookie Aldrick Robinson out of SMU also turned heads, with 104 receiving yards on six catches.

Robert Griffin III was somewhat disappointing in the first half. The Heisman Trophy winner only completed 5-of-8 passes for 49 yards while also losing a fumble.

Of course, the other big news from the game was the loss of Brian Orakpo and Brandon Meriweather in the 1st quarter to injuries. Orakpo left due to an apparent shoulder injury, while Meriweather left when he strained his knee during a Michael Bush touchdown run. Not surprisingly, neither player returned to action.
