Monday Night Football, Week 4. It's a little hard to believe, but here we are at the quarter pole of the 2017 season and only one undefeated team remains in the NFL: the Kansas City Chiefs. Tonight the Chiefs try to remain unbeaten when they face the Washington Redskins in Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri.
The Chiefs are led by game manager deluxe quarterback Alex Smith, keeping the seat warm for promising rookie and eventual successor Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs also feature an excellent bend but don't break defense, a dynamic rookie running back in Kareem Hunt who has taken the league by storm, and electrifying receiver Tyreek Hill.
The Redskins counter with what seems like permanently franchised quarterback Kirk Cousins, emerging running back Chris Thompson, and a slew of effective targets, including Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Terrelle Pryor, Jamison Crowder and Ryan Grant. The Redskins have also had a surprisingly effective defense this year, resulting in a 2-1 record and a place atop the NFC East standings.
Contrary to Mark Twain, East meets West tonight in a cross conference battle of first place teams.
Enjoy the game everybody. As always we ask that you neither ask for nor post illegal streaming links.
