Washington Redskins at Kansas City Chiefs - 10/2/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Chiefs' fourth-quarter resilience has been key to 4-0 start

During that time, Kansas City grabbed a 20-17 lead, setting up a final, dramatic possession for Washington.

Stopping Hunt and Kansas City will be a challenge for Washington (2-1). They will look to protect their house, but the Redskins will be coming in with different plans. The Redskins had one final shot to win the game, but their lateraling failed.

Questioning the Chiefs quarterback often seems a full-time sport in Kansas City and the NFL.

This should be a pretty interesting game between two teams with high hopes.

The key sequence against a Greg Manusky-led defense that suffered numerous injuries throughout the game was Smith showing great pocket awareness and his athleticism by rolling right and extending the play, allowing Albert Wilson to slip behind two defenders for a 37-yard gain down to the Washington 34. Norman headed to the sideline, and Smith followed with his first touchdown throw of the game-a 17-yarder to Kelce. If the Redskins can get anything close to that type of performance from Cousins this week, they have a chance to win at Arrowhead Stadium. "He just keeps doing good and doesn't worry about all that".

In fairness on the plays, Terrelle Pryor appeared to give a light push-off on the first touchdown, and Kirk Cousins placed the ball perfectly against decent coverage on the second touchdown. Chiefs go to 4-0.

After laying an egg on opening day against the Eagles, the Redskins bounced back against the Los Angeles Rams. It bogged down, however, and they had to settle for a field goal.

Heavy's Pick: Chiefs 24 Redskins 14.

The Redskins head into the bye week needing the break.

The 29-20 victory kept the Chiefs out the loss column and as the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL. Washington has the league's fifth-rated defense after it held the Raiders to 128 yards total offense and sacked quarterback Derek Carr four times. The last two weeks Watson hasn't faced a defense like the Chiefs.

They had to resort to a 40-yard field goal with 47 seconds left, enough time for Smith to lead the Chiefs the other way and get Butker into position for his go-ahead kick.

Then came safety Deshazor Everett, going down with a hamstring injury.

The Redskins rushed for 111 yards and have now eclipsed 100 rushing yards in three consecutive games for the first time since a five-game stretch in Weeks 6-11 of the 2016 season.

A lot of people wanted to see the Redskins on primetime tv against a tough opponent on the road to see if they were for real.

From there, Chiefs Coach Andy Reid turned it into a ball-control contest.

Less than a minute remained when Cousins, on a third and 2, heaved the end zone throw to Doctson, who was well defended. The series began with a 27-20 Chiefs win over Washington in 1971, and since then the Redskins have won only once (27-12 in 1983) and have lost the past six meetings.
