Washington is 1-4 but appears to be improving with each game offensively and defensively.
In last week's loss to Dallas, Robert Griffin III ran for 77 yards which was more than 5 more yards than he rushed for in the four previous games combined.
His ability to run the ball opens up so many more options for the Skins of offense.
The defense held Tony Romo to just 170 yards passing in that same game and held Dallas to a team total of just 213 yards.
This was by far Washington's best defensive performance and it came against one of the league's more capable offenses.
The only unit that seems to be digressing is the special teams which is a big part of why they loss that game.
The Chicago Bears are 4-2 and tied for the lead at the top of the NFC North division.
This is one of the more run-pass balanced teams in the league but they aren't invincible as the win-less Giants pushed them to the brink in a 27-21 win over New York on Thursday night.
There are four keys to this game in order for the Washington Redskins to get their first home win of the season.
