The Chicago Bears will look to earn their third win of the season, at home, against a struggling Washington Commanders team. The Bears and Commanders have put together inconsistent seasons to start the year.

With the total sitting at 37.5, it's clear that oddsmakers expect a boring, low-scoring game. But is there a chance both teams will come out hot offensively on a short week? Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Thursday's game between the Washington Commanders vs. Chicago Bears.

Chicago Bears vs. Washington Commanders Prediction

The Bears have only attempted 88 passes with Justin Fields this season. Fields is in his second season with the Bears, and it seems like the Bears did absolutely no favors for him during the off-season.

Fields has three touchdowns and four interceptions, and he's only thrown for 679 yards through five games. The Bears are not confident in their passing game. But they did nothing to address it during the offseason. Darnell Mooney has averaged two receptions per game. He's got ten receptions and 173 yards at the wide receiver position and leads the team in receiving. The lack of good passing numbers is also due to a poor offensive line. However, the offensive line has been good in the run game between David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. That's why the Bears have chosen to run the football more often.

Defensively, the Bears have allowed 378.8 yards per game, with 170 yards per game coming on the ground. The Bears haven't been good defensively, but they've been awful against the run.

On the other hand, although the Commanders are 1-4 on the season, they've ultimately played better on paper. Carson Wentz has thrown ten touchdowns but also has six interceptions.

The offense has averaged 367 yards per game, but the run game has only earned 89 yards per game. Not all the blame is on Wentz. The run game needs to do some more damage to help the passing game erupt. Thankfully, Brian Robinson Jr. has returned to the field and could be the main factor in increased performance in the run game for the Commanders. The Commanders have an effective pass rush that can create turnovers. They're not great against the run, which will ultimately hurt them against the Bears, but overall, the Commanders have an offensive you can trust more.

On a short week, I'd much rather take a shot with a veteran quarterback than Justin Fields, who is in his second year. Wentz took criticism from his coach last week and blew up in the media. He's got a lot to prove this week.

Back the Commanders on the moneyline.
