Kareem Hunt was kept out of the end zone, but still had a great night, rushing the ball 21 times for 101 yards. He's a danger out of the backfield.
After the Redskins' defense held Kansas City to a game-tying field goal near the end of the third quarter, the offense showed life when Josh Doctson made a diving catch for a 20-yard gain.
Hunt also was at his tackle-breaking best against Washington. Wilson and the bosses will have their hands full while they try to limit the versatile back of the Redskins. "He's taken advantage of the opportunity in a big way not only from getting handoffs but obviously catching passes". He's going for his fourth straight game with a sack.
The loss of Duvernay-Tardif was notable, since Football Outsiders ranked the Chiefs' offensive line 31st in the league in pass protection through Week 3.
"I think he's got great contact balance, ' Gruden said". If they lose, they'll fall into a tie for second place with the 2-2 Cowboys. Even after the Chiefs lost guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif with a knee injury on the opening series, they got better offensively and dominated time of possession over the final three quarters. With quarterback Kirk Cousins coming off a 365-yard, three-touchdown effort that earned him NFC Player of the Week honors, the Redskins will look to get wideout Terrelle Pryor Sr. more involved.
Hunt faces a tough Washington front Monday night that allows only 3.2 yards per carry this season, ranking seventh in the league.
The Washington Redskins have been a complete roller coaster of an organization these past couple of years. The result was a six-play, 50-yard drive that produced a field goal and led to a 29-20 win.
That's What I REID Into It for this week.
Just for good measure, Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston recovered a fumble on Washington's desperation play after the field goal and returned it for a touchdown. But the schedule maker did them no favors giving them another stern test against an AFC West opponent in week 4. The Redskins had to settle for the game-tying field goal instead.
Hunt, who now leads all rookies with six total touchdowns, needs two touchdowns to tie BILL PASCHAL of the 1943 New York Giants (eight touchdowns) for the most touchdowns by a rookie in his team's first four games of a season.
"Football, with what you have to do at the line of scrimmage with the quarterback, makes it a huge, huge advantage for the home team", Gruden said. "Any time you get this opportunity, you have to go out and re-prove yourself". "That's what this league's all about".
