NFL Game Previews: Bears-Redskins Matchup

Chicago at Washington (+4), 41.5 o/u – Monday, 8:15 p.m. EDT

It's not often a team can set the second overall pick on fire and still be successful, but that might be what the Bears have done. Mitchell Trubisky seems to have regressed in his third season, failing to top a 5.1 YPA in either of his two games so far, but as long as the defense remains among the league's elite, they could still win their share of games. You have to wonder if Matt Nagy might begin to consider benching him for long-time backup Chase Daniel though, who knows the system and did OK-ish in two starts last year. Another poor result here, against a secondary that couldn't hold a lead against Carson Wentz in Week 1 and got picked apart by Dak Prescott in Week 2, and there are going to be some serious questions that need to be answered in Chicago. I mean, hey, this is clearly the year of the QB switch, so better jump on that trend early if you can. Case Keenum has an even more tenuous hold on his starting job, but only because the team invested so much draft capital in his backup. Keenum's actually been solid through two weeks, and it's been the defense that has dragged Washington down to an 0-2 start. Rookie WR Terry McLaurin looks like the real deal, and there are pieces to build around once Jay Gruden decides Dwayne Haskins is ready to take over.
