Washington (6-7) remained tied with Philadelphia for the NFC East lead and moved a half-game ahead of the New York Giants, who play Miami on Monday.
The Redskins went ahead by three early in the fourth quarter on Dustin Hopkins’ 47-yard field goal and stopped a nine-game road losing streak dating to last season. It took special team plays, defense plays, offensive plays, it took a lot of different guys making plays, contributing to finding a way.” It also took one big miss by a slumping kicker who for more than a decade has been as reliable as they come.
Gould, who missed the potential winner at the end of regulation in last week’s overtime loss to San Francisco, got a chance to redeem himself.
But his 50-yarder sailed wide right with left, giving Chicago its second straight loss.
Alfred Morris ran for a TD in the Redskins’ first road win since they beat Dallas on Oct. Now that they finally came out on top away from home, the Redskins will try to do something else for the first time this season — win two in a row.
They last did that when they took out Tennessee at home and won at Dallas last season.

Each daughter could transfer her own affection and communication from the father to a young man, but if the relationship with the young man failed, then the daughter eventually could return to her father as a safe emotional haven.It’s tough for me personally, but for the team, that’s the decision that had to be made.” Gould, the Bears’ kicker since 2005, is the fifth-most accurate field goal kicker among active NFL kickers with a percentage of 85.597.His steadiness — he has made 208-for-243 field-goal attempts over the course of his career and hasn’t missed a game since 2005 — has been one of the Bears’ most consistent features under Lovie Smith. Too bad no one on earth thinks so, this is why the bears have had losing seasons for the last 4 years – delusions of grandeur.
