NFL Free Pick: Take the under. According to latest NFL trends, the under is 10-2 in the Bears' last 12 games in Week 7 and 5-1 in the Redskins' last six games following a straight up loss. The under is also 4-1 in the Redskins' last five games versus a team with a winning record, 6-2 in their last eight home games and 5-2 in their last seven games overall. RGIII vows to start running the ball more, which is a good thing for the Redskins considering his accuracy as a passer has been inconsistent over the last couple of weeks. Either way, Mike Shanahan would be wise to utilize his running game against a Chicago defensive line that is banged up along its interior. That should keep the clock moving quickly and the scoring in check.
