The storyline
The NFL's worst defense travels to face one of the league's worst offenses. The Bears are on the cusp of letting another fast start slip away, while the Redskins are finding ways to stay in games despite mediocre offense and woeful defense.

Why you should watch
Donovan McNabb returns to his hometown for the first time as a Redskin. Jay Cutler needs to bounce back or fans might start cheering more for McNabb than him. Will Mike Martz call three times as many passes as runs?
