LANDOVER, Md. — Still far from being a good team, the Washington Redskins are at least a successful team for a change.
The Redskins gave up a special teams touchdown to Devin Hester — who didn’t see that coming? — and had their defense shredded by a backup quarterback playing his first regular-season game in 21 months.
They also took advantage of an injury-depleted Chicago Bears defense and scored their most points since 2005, needing every morsel of offense from Robert Griffin III and Co., right down to Roy Helu’s game-deciding 3-yard touchdown run with 45 seconds remaining.
The Redskins beat the Bears, 45-41, on Sunday, raising their record to 2-4 while not doing much to alleviate the doubts surrounding the reigning NFC East champions. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
