The Washington Redskins jumped out to an early lead against Philadelphia and Dallas before letting off the gas and ultimately faltering to a division rival.
They didn’t really have to worry about blowing a lead against the Chicago Bears in Week 3 because this one was over long before the Redskins ever found the endzone.
Chicago’s defense feasted on the Redskins, thanks to five Case Keenum turnovers, and cruised to a 31-15 victory that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score might suggest.
With the loss, the Redskins are now 1-9 on Monday Night Football under head coach Jay Gruden and at 0-3 on the season, hold the worst record in the NFC.
Also worth noting: the Redskins have lost seven straight home games on Monday Night Football, which is the second-longest streak in the show’s lengthy history.
Sadly, they also own the longest streak, having lost 10 straight home Monday Night Football games between 1998-2010.
So yes, the Washington Redskins are officially the two worst teams at home in Monday Night Football history and are an unfathomable 1-17 in their last 18 home games on Monday Night Football.
