**Kansas City lost last week to Denver for the second time in a three-week span. After starting out the season with a 9-0 record, the Chiefs have lost three straight; they are just the fourth team to win nine or more to start a season, only to immediately lose three (or more) in a row (2009 Saints, 1969 Rams, 1934 Lions).
**The Redskins fell to the Giants at home last Sunday night, 24-17, for their fourth straight defeat. It is the team’s longest losing skein since dropping six in a row in 2011.

**The Chiefs are 7-1 all-time versus the Redskins, with the only loss coming in 1983. The teams last met in 2009, when the Chiefs won, 14-6, in Washington. Among the clubs that have been around since the merger, the eight head-to-head matchups are tied for the third fewest between any two opponents.
**Jamaal Charles gained 93 yards on the ground last week, pushing him past the 1000-yard mark for the season; he is the first Chief to do that in four different seasons (also 2009, 2010, 2012).
**Pierre Garcon has at least five receptions in all 12 games this season; he and Antonio Brown (Pit), who has also done so this season, are tied for the third longest string of five-catch games to start a season (Jimmy Smith, 2001 Jax — 16 & Keyshawn Johnson, 2001 TB — 13).
**Alfred Morris is the first player to spend his first two career seasons with Washington and gain 1000 yards on the ground in each of those campaigns. Among active players, only Chris Johnson (3234) and Adrian Peterson (3101) had more rushing yards than Morris (2609) through their first two NFL seasons.
