CHICAGO (AP) — Christian Holmes recovered a muffed punt by Velus Jones deep in Chicago territory to set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Brian Robinson Jr. (pictured) midway through the fourth quarter, and the Washington Commanders stopped a four-game losing streak, hanging on to beat the Chicago Bears 12-7.

The Commanders did just enough to come away with their first win since beating Jacksonville in the opener and handed the Bears (2-4) their third straight loss. Washington caught a huge break when it punted on fourth down at its 36. Jones had trouble tracking the ball, then let it hit off his arms.

Holmes recovered it in a big pile at the 6, and Robinson scored two plays later.  The Commanders improve to 2-4, while the Bears fall to that same record.

The Washington Commanders look to make it two wins in a row when they host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, October 23rd at 1:00pm!  Hear all that action exclusively on 94.5KHI!
