LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Mitchell Trubisky threw his first three touchdown passes of the season, all to Taylor Gabriel in the second quarter, to finally get the Chicago Bears' offense going and build a big lead that held up to beat the Washington Redskins 31-15 on Monday night.

BOX SCORE: BEARS 31, REDSKINS 15

Trubisky lit up a porous Redskins defense on 25 of 31 passing for 231 yards in the offensive explosion he predicted would come this week. Chicago (2-1) had just a 1-yard touchdown run to show for its first two games before Trubisky and the passing attack broke out against Washington (0-3).

Are the Bears ready for primetime vs. Redskins?

  Are the Bears ready for primetime vs. Redskins? The Chicago Bears make their second primetime appearance in three weeks. Are they ready for Monday's primetime contest vs. the Redskins?That is, until the Bears exploded onto the scene and had two games flexed to Sunday night in Week 11 against the Vikings and Week 14 against the Rams.

Getting into the end zone hasn’t been easy for the Bears so far this year. Their only touchdown to date came last Sunday in Denver on David Montgomery’s “You’ve just got to believe this week is going to be the week,” said quarterback Mitchell Trubisky . “So we haven’t been executing the way we want to.

The 2017 second overall pick who entered the night with a completion percentage of 58.3 and ranked near the bottom of the league in yards per attempt completed passes to nine different receivers. Trubisky had 173 yards in the first half alone before throwing an interception at the goal line in the third quarter.

With scores of 1, 3 and 36 yards , Gabriel joined Mike Ditka in 1963 as the only Bears receivers with three TD catches in the first half of a game. Gabriel made six catches for 75 yards before leaving in the second half with a concussion.

The Bears took advantage of five turnovers by Redskins quarterback Case Keenum: two interceptions by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, including a pick six, another by Kyle Fuller and fumbles forced by Khalil Mack and Danny Trevathan. With the offense up to the defense's speed in the first half, Chicago put up 28 points in two quarters after scoring a total of 19 the past two weeks, 12 of which came on field goals from Eddy Pineiro .

Jay Gruden, 0-3 Redskins have another miserable night in loss to Bears

  Jay Gruden, 0-3 Redskins have another miserable night in loss to Bears Jay Gruden, 0-3 Redskins have another miserable night in loss to BearsIf you close your eyes, you can picture Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder’s reaction to what unfolded in the first half on Monday night.

Bears vs Redskins Preview. The Bears are 1-1, but just 19 points through two games has some hitting the panic button about Matt Nagy’s squad, specifically quarterback Mitch Trubisky . “They got some openings where we could have some success on offense this week,” Trubisky told reporters Thursday.

LAST WEEK — Bears beat Broncos 16-14; Redskins lost to Cowboys 31 -21. Redskins offense — overall (25), rush ( 31 ), pass (10). Fantasy tip: Trubisky could get on roll against Redskins ' defense that has allowed 8.4 yards per completion and six passing TDs.

Mack had two of the Bears' four sacks to continue a dominant start by the defense that didn't give up a Washington TD until midway through the third quarter. Keenum's two TD passes came long after fans chanted for rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins and booed the Redskins off the field at halftime.

NOW WHAT?

Washington's defense that wilted in the second half of its first two losses had few answers for Trubisky all game Monday. Eight days after coach Jay Gruden said, "I don't think we have to push the panic button yet," some significant changes could be coming soon.

Before Gruden's job security is really in question, defensive coordinator Greg Manusky looks like the logical target as the first coach to take the fall. Washington's defense ranked in 21st and 17th in the NFL in Manusky's first two seasons in charge and is on pace to finish worse than that this year.

The "Let's go Haskins" chants notwithstanding, the Redskins are far more likely to turn to longtime backup Colt McCoy if they make a change at the position. McCoy is working toward being healthy again nine months after breaking his right leg.

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is taking the heat after the Chicago Bears scored only 19 points in Teammates and coaches insist there's blame to go around for the poor start on offense as the Bears (1-1) get ready to try to find the end zone when they travel to face the Washington Redskins (0-2)

HA HA GETS LAST LAUGH

When the Redskins signed former New York Giants safety Landon Collins, it effectively spelled the end of their chances of re-signing Clinton-Dix, a trade acquisition last year from Green Bay who played nine games for them. Clinton-Dix made his old team pay with a first quarter interception he returned 37 yards for his first career touchdown.

Clinton-Dix for good measure picked off Keenum in the third quarter and returned it 59 yards.

JUST FOR KICKS

Pineiro, who was questionable because of a knee injury suffered while lifting weights, missed a 44-yard field goal attempt in the third quarter and was good from 38 yards in the fourth. "Eddy Money" was 4 of 4 going into the night, including a 53-yard game-winner at Denver in Week 2.
