After last week’s nine-carry debut, Brian Robinson Jr. clearly earned the Commanders’ coaches’ trust for more work Thursday night.

Robinson wasn’t ripping off many big runs, but his 16-yard run on the front side of the two-minute warning was a back-breaker for the Bears.

The Bears were 2 for 2 in red-zone opportunities in Week 5 against the Vikings but 0 for 3 in the five-point loss to the Giants.

On Thursday, the Bears matched the Giants game's inefficiency, with the game ending on Darnell Mooney’s fourth-down catch ruled down at the Washington 1-yard line.

Carson Wentz has a propensity to attract foreign bodies; they’re now the two most-sacked quarterbacks in the NFL.

It’s clear that Scott Turner and Ron Rivera -- coaches who might be fighting for their livelihoods -- have very little trust remaining in high-leverage situations to call for even moderately risky throws

When David Montgomery missed most of Week 3 and all of Week 4, Herbert was able to shine. He ran for a combined 234 yards and two TDs and caught all three passes thrown to him for 36 more yards.

On Thursday, he had seven -- and one of them went for 64 yards. This is not a plea to take the ball out of Montgomery’s hands but one to give Herbert an expanded diet.
