The Kansas City Chiefs were thoroughly tested by the Washington Redskins but in the end the Chiefs were able to pull out a 29-20 win. Alex Smith made some incredible throws for the Kansas City offense and when things were all said and done the Chiefs quarterback threw for 293 yards, 1 touchdown, and 0 interceptions for the night. Kareem Hunt also did his thing for the Chiefs, Hunt proved why he has been the best running back in the league so far with a 101 yard performance against a tough Redskins defense. In the passing game Travis Kelce had the most notable impact. Kelce hauled in 111 receiving yards and 1 touchdown catch. Together these three players have been the foundation for the Chiefs offense and what a year they are having. The losing team in this contest was led by Kirk Cousins. Cousins played pretty well with 220 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. As good as the Washington quarterback was the Redskins need to score more than 20 points in order to win these highly competitive match ups. Terrelle Pryor did give this team a boost with 70 yards and 1 receiving touchdown but not one Redskins player went over 100 yards rushing or receiving. Bennie Logan was pretty good defensively for the Chiefs the Kansas City nose tackle had 4 tackles on the night. Marcus Peters contributed 4 tackles and forced fumbled to KCā€™s defensive efforts too. On the other sideline the Redskins were led by Zach Brown who had a team high 9 tackles. DJ Swearinger put up 5 tackles and a sack as well. Give credit to the Chiefs for weathering the storm. This team was actually trailing the Redskins 10-0 heading into the second quarter. Andy Reidā€™s team is extremely resilient though and now Kansas City improves to an impressive 4-0 on the year. Theyā€™re a lot of fun to watch.
