ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says his special teams "improved drastically" in a game in which they allowed a special teams touchdown for the third consecutive week.

The Redskins gave up an 81-yard punt return score by Devin Hester in Sunday's 45-41 win over the Chicago Bears.

In addition, Joshua Morgan fumbled a kickoff, only to be bailed out when one of his teammates recovered. Also, the Bears recovered an onside kick in the fourth quarter, a play that was negated when a Chicago player was judged to be offsides.

And it doesn't get any easier. This week the Redskins are preparing for the Denver Broncos and their talented returner Trindon Holliday.
