Washington – +7 (-110)
Kansas City – -7 (-110)
Washington – +245
Kansas City – -295

Through 3 weeks, The Chiefs offense has taken the League by storm. Before the season began, we wrote than Kareem Hunt stood the best chance to win Rookie of the Year, and does he ever look good for it. He leads the league in rushing yards with 401 and is 3rd on the team in receiving yards with 137. With Alex Smith never blowing the tires off defenses in years past, it’s interesting what The Kansas City offense would produce if the Redskins could successfully take Hunt out of the picture, but they don’t have any sort of special defensive talents that can lock down a player like that.
Kansas City has also had real success where other teams have not in implementing a gadget receiver like Tyreek hill, but he will be facing Josh Norman, and the Chiefs have already had issues getting Tight End Travis Kelce going, so eliminating Hunt could break down the whole offense.
On the other side, Kurt Cousins finally had a game to write home about in his route of the Oakland Raiders. Nothing seems to be going right for the Redskins offense with their big talents Terrell Pryor, Jamison Crowder, Jordon Reed, Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine all underperforming. But that begins at the head of the snake with Cousins, who is coming off a 365 yards-3 touchdown performance.
While the Kansas City secondary is talented at taking the ball away, they are also susceptible to giving up big passes.
Washington Redskins 24 – 28 Kansas City Chiefs
This ultimately comes down to a Chiefs offense that runs exclusively through star rookie Kareem Hunt, and Kurt Cousins leading the Redskins. The core will climb as both defenses are just serviceable.
We take Kansas City (-295), Washington covering 7 points (-110), and Over 49.0 points (-110).Bet Now!
