On Oct. 13 in front of a national audience that could watch the game on Prime Video, the Chicago Bears (2-4) fell at home to the Washington Commanders (2-4) by the low score of 12-7.
After the game, quarterback Justin Fields voiced frustration over what has resulted in Chicago dropping three straight games, ESPN noted. "We always get told that 'we're almost there, we're almost there,'" Fields said. "Me, personally, I'm tired of being almost there."
Fields threw an interception at Washington's 5-yard line on Chicago's second drive of the gamethe first red-zone pick of his career. However, the one botched play that really bothered him was when On the Bears' second red zone drive, Fields and Ryan Griffin failed to connect on second-and-3 from the Washington 3-yard line when the veteran tight end had 4.05 yards of separation, according to Next Gen Stats.
Washington stopped a four-game losing streak.
