Chicago Bears 16
Washington Redskins 24
(referring to the November 27 death of safety Sean Taylor, who was shot and fatally wounded in a robbery at his home the day before and his funeral three days before the game)
Washington Quarterback Todd Collins: We've been through a lot. We really didn't have any practice time this week, dealing with the death of a teammate and a funeral.
Washington Defensive End Phillip Daniels: We got closure on Monday, and that's one of the things that helped us. To get closure and move forward, that was big for us, for this team.
Washington Coach Joe Gibbs: It seems like it's been forever since we won a game. This team's overcome so much. ... It's been an emotional roller coaster for us.
