Chiefs show what you need to do to bad teams
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Five things we learned from the Chiefs’ 45-10 rout of the Redskins on Sunday.
Yes, we know the Washington Redskins are lousy, and we also found out how easily they can lie down.
Give some credit to Chiefs coach Andy Reid, too, for going for the jugular early. With a 3-0 lead and facing a fourth-and-1 at the ‘Skins’ 4-yard line, Reid said to hell with the field goal and went for it.
Naturally, we have to give some serious love to special teams coach Dave Toub, whose return units, like the rest of the Chiefs’ units, had no mercy on the dispirited Redskins, piling up 300 yards in returns.
While the cold and snowy conditions seemed to affect some Redskins receivers, who would have guessed that Chiefs wideout Dwayne Bowe actually would excel under those conditions?
All week long, the pregame talk was about whether the Chiefs could contain the mighty Redskins ground game, which was tops in the NFL.
