Case Keenum is confident Redskins’ offense can get going against Bears’ defense
The Washington Redskins will be looking for their first win of the 2019 NFL season in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears. Although their formidable defense is expected to provide quite a challenge, quarterback Case Keenum is confident that the offense is more than up to the task.
The Bears defense has picked up right where it left off last season as one of the best groups in the NFL. According to Bryan Perez of NBC Sports Chicago, Keenum is still optimistic being able to put points on the board:
“I don’t know if there’s anything we take away from them being great defenses,” Keenum said of Washington’s early opponents. “We’re confident, whoever we play, we’re gonna line up and move the ball and go score touchdowns. Everybody in this league is really good, and we got our work cut out for us again, I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
The prospect of the Redskins being the team that is able to expose the Bears’ defense may seem a bit far-fetched. Regardless, it is encouraging to see that Keenum is still confident in the state of this group heading into Week 3.
It is easy to see where his confidence stems from following a stellar start to the 2019 NFL season. Keenum has thrown for 601 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions while completing 69 percent of his passes through the first two games. The veteran will certainly have his work cut out against this hounding Bears pass rush, considering the Redskins still have yet to establish a decent run game.
