The Redskins face a 'must-win' situation in Week 3 of the 2019 NFL regular season. Following back-to-back NFC East division losses, the Redskins enter their first Monday Night Football appearance of the season winless, but with a great opportunity ahead of them.

The Chicago Bear (1-1) have an excellent defense, but a limited offense, which should help a Redskins team that has given up 910 yards of total offense at 63 points.

With a host of Redskins players sidelined with injuries, CB Quinton Dunbar and TE Jordan Reed the notable names, It's not going to be an easy task. But if the Redskins have any desire to stay in the early-season playoff race, a win on Monday night is a must.

The Week 3 game between the Redskins and Bears is set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.

But the action begins at 7:00 p.m. ET with Redskins Kickoff Live on NBC Sports Washington and the MyTeams App. (Channel Finder)

WEEK 3: REDSKINS vs. BEARS LIVE UPDATES:

9:13 p.m.: The Bears score the first offensive touchdown of the game on an uncontested pass from Mitchell Trubisky to a wide-open Taylor Gabriel for a 7-yard TD catch. This game already feels out of reach, and it's only 14-0 in the second quarter.

9:03 p.m.: And now center Chase Roullier is questionable for return with a knee injury. 

8:55 p.m.: Brandon Scherff, who was reportedly offered a new contract extension by the Redskins earlier today, is sidelined with an ankle injury and is questionable for return. No Bueno.

8:52 p.m.: Tony Bergstrom is now in at guard for Scherff because backup guard Wes Martin is inactive. No Bueno.

8:51 p.m: The Redskins get the ball back and after another near Case Keenum turnover, Brandon Scherff gets his leg rolled up on and has to be helped off the field. No Bueno.

8:41 p.m.: The Redskins nearly sack Mitchell Trubisky in the end zone for a safety, but the referee rules Trubisky down at the one-yard-line via a Matt Ioannidis sack. Apparently, when dealing with a sack in the end zone, the ball is spotted at the point of contact instead of where the QB hits the ground. That seems very wrong.

8:35 p.m.: The Redskins get the ball back, and the drive stalls again thanks to a monster sack from Khalil Mack. Jeremy Sprinkle missed the assignment. Not a great start for him. Not a great start for the Redskins.

8:29 p.m.: Case Keenum has a wide-open Jeremy Sprinkle, who promptly drops the ball with no one in sight. A play later, Keenum finds former Ha Ha Clinton-Dix who runs it in for the TD. Reminder: Clinton-Dix is a cornerback who plays for the Bears, and the pass was actually an interception, Keenum's first of the season. Reminder 2: Clinton-Dix has a not-so-great half season for the Redskins in 2018.

8:23 p.m.: The Bears get Mitchell Trubisky out of the pocket frequently, and are pushing all the action to the outside. Chicago picks up two first downs, but stalls out afte Montez Sweat sacks Trubisky on third down, the very first sack of Sweat's career.

8:00 p.m.: The Redskins are in white pants and burgundy jerseys. The Bears are in navy pants and white jerseys.

7:55 p.m.: An interesting subset of the game will be the Mitchell Trubisky vs. Cole Holcomb battle. The Bears QB and Redskins LB were roommates at North Carolina.

7:50 p.m.: Another DID YOU KNOW: The Redskins stink on Monday Night Football.

7:45 p.m.: This has very little do to with the game tonight, but is a fact we all should know: There is a Hooters at FedEx Field, and it's the largest Hooters in the entire world. #TheMoreYouKnow

7:40 p.m.: Is tonight a "must-win"? It's more than a must-win. The Redskins have reached the point of desperation. Read JP Finlay's pregame words.

7:35 p.m.: That's right. Jonathan Allen is back in the lineup. He might not be 100-percent healthy, but this is the biggest game of the early season, and the redskins need their best players on the field. Peep the full injury report prior to kick off.

7:30 p.m.: Welcome to the Monday Night Football edition of your 2019 Redskins-Bears live blog. Mitchell Trubisky, Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears are in town to take on Case Keenum, Jonathan Allen and the Redskins in a "must-win" game. Yes, we realize it's only Week 3. But at 0-2 with the Giants and Patriots up next, the Redskins need to win this game.
