The Commanders won a messy game against the Bears, but they did win, leaving Chicago with a 12-7 victory Thursday night to move to 2-4 on the season.
And, among the more impossible feats of the season, Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson got his first career start, which resulted in him scoring his first career touchdown, only a month and a half after being shot twice during an attempted carjacking in Washington, D.C.
Robinson wound up scoring the go-ahead and game-winning score as the Commanders took the 12-7 lead, with Robinson leading the charge on a five-yard run with eight minutes remaining in the the fourth quarter. It was the final score of the game.
Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz sealed the run with the leading block — against Bears linebacker Roquan Smith — to help pave the way for Robinson one play earlier.
In total, Robinson carried the ball 17 times for 60 yards (3.5 yards per carry) with the one touchdown.
