CHICAGO -- The Bears tacked on 10 more points, this time on special teams as Lorenzo Booker brought back the opening kickoff of the second half 105 yards for a touchdown and Robbie Gould booted a 19-yard field goal to make the score 30-10.

Booker evaded six tacklers after catching the ball deep in Chicago’s end zone, and outran the rest of the Redskins coverage team on the way to the touchdown.

Booker came into training camp as a long shot to make the roster because of the depth at the position with Matt Forte, Michael Bush, Kahlil Bell and Armando Allen. But Booker likely made a strong case to make the final roster with his return skills.

Gould’s field goal, meanwhile, capped a 10-play drive spanning 55 yards. Backup quarterback Jason Campbell completed back-to-back passes to rookie tight end Evan Rodriguez and receiver Chris Summers during the drive for 25 yards.
