LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — The Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins moved the ball in the second half as if it were a game of 7-on-7, with Josh McCown shaking off two seasons of regular-season inactivity while trying to keep pace with Robert Griffin III.

It was one of those games where the last team that scores comes away the winner. It turned out to be the Redskins, who got a third touchdown from Roy Helu with 45 seconds to play Sunday for a 45-41 win.

Griffin completed 18 of 29 passes for 298 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for the Redskins (2-4), who have both of their wins against backup quarterbacks. This time is was McCown, who entered in the second quarter after Jay Cutler left with a groin injury.

Griffin also ran 11 times for a season-high 84 yards against a Bears defense depleted by injuries, but…

The loud sigh you heard inside the beltway Sunday had nothing to do with anything regarding the potential government shutdown…could you imagine two weeks of talking about an 0-4 Redskins team? Instead, the 24-14 come from behind victory at Oakland means the team enters October on an upswing and out of last place in the NFC East…giving the team a chance to rectify itself before beginning a run of four road games over six weeks. Will they run off seven straight victories like last fall? Unlikely. But a win can be the start of staggering back into the playoff race.

It’s still a Win– even though it’s Oakland. A very bad Oakland with Matt Flynn at quarterback. Remember when he was the Scott Mitchell of the free agent quarterback crop in January-February 2012? And his name was bandied about as a potential Redskins free agent pickup? I shudder to think…
