RG3 Contained In Second Preseason Game

CHICAGO (August 18, 2012) -- Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall looked sharp from the start, and the Chicago Bears beat Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins 33-31 in a preseason game on Saturday night.

In their first appearance together for the Bears, Cutler and Marshall picked up where they left off when they starred together with the Denver Broncos. They connected on a 41-yard pass on Chicago's first play from scrimmage to set up the first of two first-quarter touchdown runs by Michael Bush, and the defense contained Griffin.

Making matters worse for the Redskins , they lost Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo (shoulder) and safety Brandon Meriweather (knee) to injuries late in the first quarter. But for the Bears, it was a promising night even if they couldn't protect the lead.

They racked up 262 yards in the first half, after managing just 41 through the first two quarters in a preseason-opening loss to Denver.
