Soldier Field will be hosting the Washington Redskins this week. McNabb and the Redskins as weird as that sounds, they will be on the road after a disappointing loss to Colts at home on Sunday Night. Looking to rebound from that defeat they take on a Bears team whose offensive line is so bad even David Carr wouldn’t play behind it. Washington has some talent defensively, but is very weak at defending the pass and if Cutler has any time to get going he could very easily pass for over 300 yards against this team. The Redskins can pass to however and McNabb is going to have to come out throwing in order to free up some room for RB Ryan Torrain who looked great last week even though it was the Colts run defense. Game is set to start Sunday at 1:00 PM EST.

The Redskins have deep threats and if they want to win this game they are going to have to go deep to either Armstrong or Moss. The Bears Defense is susceptible to big gains through the air. The running game which had been struggling while Portis was starting may have found a spark with Torrain back there, while it’s yet to be proven I can’t wait to see if he can keep it up against a Bear Defense that doesn’t allow many rushing yards. On Defense they have to get pressure on Cutler which shouldn’t be too hard since everyone else has been able to, not to mention that the Redskins have pass rush specialist Brian Orakpo at LB and he should make life pretty miserable for Cutler. There are holes in the secondary, however and it will be interesting to see what defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has in store for the Bears Offense.
The Bears have finally started realizing that Devin Hester is a return man and that’s pretty much all he will be in the NFL. The Bears have not done too much on Offense this year, despite Cutler having pretty good numbers thus far and the primary reason for this is because Cutler is getting drilled in the ground on every pass play, this team has to learn how to block or they won’t be winning too many more games. On Offense it’s clear the strategy is to throw the ball all over the field, but without a line to block and an actual receiving core I don’t know how much better the Bears expect to get on Offense. The Defense clearly being the strong point of the team is going to have bad games from time to time, but overall they are pretty good especially at stopping the run. This defense is going to have to worry about McNabb potentially connecting deep to one of their deep threats. If McNabb has time and is able to throw the ball around the field this game could get ugly.

Redskins vs Bears Prediction for Week 7 Betting:
Spread Prediction (Top Play): Let me be the first to say I believe this will be one of the closest games played this week, both teams need a win badly, but this game will come down to who wants it more. Both Offenses are in a little bit of a funk and just not very good, both Defenses are good, but at times can be beaten pretty badly. The Bears are at home so they are the favorites at this point and if Jay Cutler can get time in the pocket he really could have a field day, but I can’t see that happening. On the other hand I don’t think McNabb will fare any better and both Running Backs may prove to be no factor. I think the game will be won on Defense and since Washington is 3-0 as an underdog this season it makes it hard to pick against them.
Game Total: This game will likely be close late and I don’t know if either team will allow the other to score often. This game will likely drag on and on before a team scores and it may be a field goal type affair with neither team able to get it in the end zone. I think both teams have a lot of work to do on their Offense before I believe any of them are going to be scoring at will. Chicago is 2-4 for the Over this season, four times their games have gone under and I believe this one will as well. This game has all the making of a defensive type game in which the team which scores first will have to hold on to the lead. A tough call, but if I had to pick take the Under.
