CHICAGO (AP) — Kirk Cousins threw for 300 yards and a touchdown and the Washington Redskins hung on to beat the Bears 24-21 after Chicago's Robbie Gould missed yet another late field goal Sunday.
Washington, which came in tied with Philadelphia and the Giants for the NFC East lead, went ahead early in the fourth quarter on Dustin Hopkins' 47-yard field goal. The Redskins (6-7) hung on to break a nine-game road losing streak dating to last season.
The Bears (5-8) were in position to score after Jay Cutler hit Alshon Jeffery with a 50-yard pass that put the ball on the Washington 35. The usually reliable 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.
His 50-yard attempt wasn't even close as it sailed wide right.
