The Washington Redskins had high expectations heading into the 2013 season, but six weeks in, they find themselves near the bottom of the NFC with a 1-4 record. With a showdown against the 4-2 Chicago Bears looming this Sunday, it may continue to get worse.
Despite their one-win record, the Redskins still only sit two Cheap Jerseys Online games out of first place in the lowly NFC East, and had a chance to pull themselves back into the race last week against the Cowboys. They failed to do so, falling 31-16 last Sunday night. A rally is certainly possible considering their improbable close to 2012 to capture the division crown, but they’ll need to start showing serious signs of improvement to do so.
With rumors that head coach Lovie Smith has interviewed for the vacant USC Trojans Cheap Jerseys NCAA job floating around the Web, the Bears head into Week 7 trying to climb back atop the NFC North standings. The offense is clicking on all cylinders, as Jay Cutler’s reemergence has helped fuel the league’s No. 3 scoring offense. Cutler is averaging 271.7 passing yards per game has thrown 12 touchdowns to six interceptions. Five of those scores have been caught by Brandon Marshall, who torched the Giants for nine catches and two touchdowns last week. Matt Forte has anchored the running game, averaging 4.4 yards per carry and finding the endzone twice.
Chicago took a blow when it lost starting middle linebacker D.J. Williams for the season last week with a torn pectoral. Considering Williams had just 19 tackles through six games, however, it might not be as significant a loss as it seems. Giving up 373 yards per game, the Bears defense has been far from dominant, though with a league-leading 17 takeaways, they’ve certainly been opportunistic.
