Behind enemy lines 5 questions for Chiefs Wire

Behind enemy lines 5 questions for Chiefs Wire

The Redskins were able to hang with the NFL's best team thus far, but the good news is they're entering their bye week before an October 15 game against the 49ers. The Redskins will still gain confidence from this game, being able to hang with one of the elite teams in the NFL. They are playing well thus far, but they do have some areas to improve.

The Redskins are in the top 10 in the National Football League in sack rate, which spells real trouble for the Chiefs. Safety D.J. Swearinger is dealing with a hamstring injury while running back Rob Kelley continues to battle problems with his ribs. Kirk Cousins is completing 68 percent of his passes for 784 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. It was a play that wouldn't have been possible without a commitment to the running game.

Then, it happened. Kareem Hunt took a handoff, burst to his left and rumbled to the end zone for a 69-yard touchdown to extend the streak to nine straight games. His return, paired with the emergence of Chris Thompson and one of the league's best offensive lines, the Redskins have an opportunity to move the ball on the ground.

In the second half, KC's defense really stepped it up and Washington's defense was on the field a lot longer than it had been in the first half.

The only area that the Redskins can improve in is their third down effectiveness. Most betting sites have them facing +281 or worse odds on the money line.

Butker, who was signed this week to replace injured kicker Cairo Santos, had missed his first field goal attempt of the game hours earlier.

Redskins cornerback Deshazor Everett also left for a portion of the game, and Quinton Dunbar was shaken up on a punt. "We're still getting Charcandrick (West) in there for reps, and if the other Hunt (Akeem) comes along here we'll have a third back we're comfortable with".

Head coach Jay Gruden leads a team coming off back-to-back winning seasons, with the defense taking the biggest stride forward in 2017.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Redskins have continued to be excellent.

Pass rusher Dee Ford missed practice for the Chiefs, and it's a big concern. Considering those problems haven't been fixed, it makes sense why some players wouldn't want to stand just to conform to the NFL's groupthink. And with ever-efficient Alex Smith surrounded by explosive young weapons in Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill the Chiefs this far look like the class of the AFC. Can they pull off a Week 4 upset?

Ioannidis' success is a bit more surprising. Brown has looked awfully good in an admittedly tiny sample size and is now the healthiest early down runner.

Nobody is going undefeated this season, but I don't think this Chiefs ride is over just yet. The sack knocked the team out of realistic field goal range and it was a huge moment for the team. The only player officially out for the Redskins is tackle Ty Nsekhe (core).

Kelce caught as pass for a first down, and celebrated right in the face of some Washington defensive backs.
