Quarterback Jay Cutler moved to 0 for 25 on third-down conversions over his last nine quarters, and suffered two sacks. Luckily for Chicago, the defense scored its first touchdown since November of last season when nickel corner D.J. Moore picked off a Donovan McNabb pass tipped by Israel Idonije, and raced 54 yards for a score with 6:03 left in the quarter to put the Bears ahead early.
Washington evened the score on a 24-yard strike from McNabb to Santana Moss with 1:08 left in the quarter.
