The old format will return in 2 weeks. This week, I'm sick, so you get an abbreviated synopsis.
Last week, the Bears beat the Giants but looked every bit the mid-card, one-and-done-if-they-make-the-playoffs squad that they've been pretty much all year. RGIII looked better, health-wise, than he did previously. However, they are a bad team and lost to the Cowboys.
On offense, the Bears will pretty much impose their will on the Redskins. They aren't good against the pass or the rush, and Brandon Marshall is primed for a huge game. On defense, RGIII is going to slash up our putrid defensive line, though the Bears are still reasonably good against actual RB. I expect a very high-scoring game.
Normally, I take the home team in a close game, which this will be. However, I think that since the Bears are coming off a Thursday Night game, they will be unfairly well rested and prepared for this game. They also have a bye to look forward, which gives a psychological edge as well as a chance to focus 100% on the Washington Dan Snyder's Tiny Penises. I think the Bears win a high-scoring squeaker.
