Redskins Vs. Bears: Chicago Takes 14-10 Lead On Johnny Knox Touchdown

Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz is known for his vertical passing game. However, with his quarterback, Jay Cutler, getting battered by the Washington Redskins' defense, Martz decided the only way his team could move the football would be to go to the short passing game.

For one drive at least, the decision worked out. Cutler and the Bears called a number of slants and short passes to move up the field, and eventually finished the drive with a brilliant nine-yard scramble and pass to Johnny Knox for a touchdown. The Bears now lead 14-10, despite being inept offensively for most of the half.

Knox had three catches on the drive, all for first downs, as the Redskins' cornerbacks played off the Bears' receivers too much.
