Vegas Play of the Day: Washington at Kansas City

Vegas Play of the Day: Washington at Kansas City Vegas Play of the Day: Washington at Kansas City

The Washington Redskins come into the game with a 2-1 record on the season.

Washington Redskins travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in Week Four's Monday Night Football action, live on Sky Sports. With 103 passing yards against the Chiefs, Cousins would become the sixth quarterback in National Football League history to record at least 13,000 passing yards in his first 50 career games. Thompson looks the pick to perform best for Washington.

Washington has yet to play a game this season where they hit the over. Another important factor is if Jordan Reed can play this week.

If they are to win they will have to find a way to stop Kansas City's rookie running back Kareem Hunt, who has already posted 401 rushing yards for 8.5 yards per carry.

With only 47 seconds left in their primetime showdown against Washington, the Chiefs had the ball at their own 25-yard line, with the score knotted at 20. The sim data actually has the home side favored by 10 points, indicating a whole lot of value on the 7-point spread.

However, starting offensive lineman in Mitch Morse is among the inactive players for Kansas City as he continues to recover from a sprained foot.

What was so, so almost 3-1 for the Redskins became 2-2 on a 29-20 loss, and suddenly the next two weeks become a little less bright in Washington.

The Redskins have the second-most stingy run defence this season, and have only surrendered 62.3 yards per game. Samaje Perine did a serviceable job and avoided negative runs. CB Josh Norman went out of the game with a rib fracture and safety Montae Nicholson is now dealing with an AC joint sprain. Part of that was due to the fact that Trent Williams had left the game with an injury and T.J.

It is hard to trust his ancillary weapons in the passing game as Ryan Grant still leads all of the Redskins wide receivers and tight ends through three weeks of play with a mere 16.3 fantasy points in standard formats, but one has to figure that better days are ahead for Jamison Crowder and Terrelle Pryor, both best viewed as risky WR3s for Week 4. The defense is beginning to fluster QB Kirk Cousins. This gave Washington a 17-14 lead. Yet to register an interception, and with only two fumbles forced, the Chiefs' D is going to show itself soon and in spectacular fashion. Can this Redskins team break from tradition and finally taste success against the Chiefs?

Head coach Jay Gruden leads a team coming off back-to-back winning seasons, with the defense taking the biggest stride forward in 2017. They've been far and away the most impressive team so far, and there's nothing that can take away from their first three performances.

The Redskins (2-2) started hot, driving 75 yards in six plays on the opening series to grab a 7-0 lead on a 44-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to Terrelle Pryor. The Chiefs are trying to stay ideal and a game clear of the Broncos in the AFC West.

His replacement, Ty Nsekhe, was injured, so the Redskins had to turn to former Vikings practice squad player T.J. Clemmings, who had been claimed off waivers just a month earlier.

They will have to keep up this pressure to get to Alex Smith.
