In a surprising turn, the Chicago Bears handed the Washington Commanders a reality check in Thursday Night Football. Despite being favored, the Commanders suffered a 40-20 defeat at FedEx Field. The score belies the Bears’ dominance, seizing an early lead with 27 first-half points, while Washington managed only a field goal. Despite the Commanders’ efforts to rally, they fell short, with Joey Slye’s missed 46-yard field goal extinguishing hopes of a remarkable comeback within the final six minutes.

Bears receiver D.J. Moore emerged as the star of the game, securing a game ball after a stellar performance that saw him make eight catches for an impressive 230 yards and three touchdowns. Justin Fields also showcased his prowess, completing 15 of 29 passes for 282 yards and four touchdowns.

In contrast, Commanders quarterback Sam Howell faced an uphill battle throughout the night, achieving a career high with 388 yards on 37 of 51 passing attempts.

The Commanders, now on a three-game losing streak after their initial 2-0 start, must view this defeat as a significant wake-up call. The continuous decline could prompt a restructuring of the team, ushering in a new era with fresh faces.

Looking ahead, Washington is set to return to action on Sunday, Oct. 15, facing the Atlanta Falcons with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m.
