The Redskins have relied on big plays all year. They just got a very, very big one from DeAngelo Hall. Hall, who already has one interception today, made a spectacular one-handed grab and returned it 92 yards for a touchdown to give the Redskins a 17-14 lead.
The play occurred on a 3rd and seven. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler flung one high out to the sidelines, and Hall outleaped Devin Hester to grab it. He then took off down the sidelines, and no Bears player was able to get to him.
The Bears had advanced the ball with short passing and a strong rushing attack, but Cutler's propensity for red zone inteceptions once again bit them at the wrong time. Cutler hasn't thrown any yet this year prior to that, but it's always a major concern for him. This throw, done off the back foot and lobbed to a short receiver, is the kind of throw Bears fans probably wish he'd avoid.
