The Redskins won an emotional game over the Chicago Bears 24-16 at FedEx Field.  Backup quarterback Todd Collins shined in relief of starter Jason Campbell, who went down with an injured left knee before halftime.  Coach Joe Gibbs says he admires how Collins stays on top of things as the number-two signal caller.  Collins was 15-of-20 through the air for 224 yards and two touchdowns.  Clinton Portis had 86 yards receiving and 36 more on the ground.  Chris Cooley caught five balls for 93 yards to help Washington’s cause.  The Burgundy and Gold snapped a four-game losing streak and are now off until a week from Sunday night when they head to East Rutherford to meet the New York Giants.  The Bears also lost their starting quarterback.  Rex Grossman hurt his left knee a couple of minutes into the game.  Brian Griese took over and was 27-of-45 for 295 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.  Cornerback Shawn Springs had two interceptions for the Redskins.
