Chiefs vs. Redskins recap: Washington blown out 45-10 at home
LANDOVER, Md. (AP/WJLA) - The Kansas City Chiefs scored early and often Sunday, breaking a three-game losing streak with a 45-10 embarrassment of the Washington Redskins.
The Chiefs improved to 10-3 by dominating an opponent that offered little resistance. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns.
The score was 17-0 after the first quarter and 38-10 at halftime. Quintin Demps immediately answered the lone Redskins touchdown with a 95-yard kickoff return, part of a stunning tally of 321 return yards by Kansas City in the first half alone.
The Redskins fell to 3-10, increasing speculation that coach Mike Shanahan will be gone at the end of the season.
Although many fans either left early or never showed up at all, those who who came and stayed to the end experienced snow, then sleet, then frozen car windshields when they walked out.
But most ABC7 talked to said the play of the Redskins was far worse than the weather.
"I can deal with the weather, I'm dressed for the weather," said fan Richard Hunt of Accokeek. "I know how to prepare for that. But they're not prepared on the field."
