The Chiefs aren’t playing in the most extreme conditions in Washington, but it is snowing enough to make things a mess.
So faced with a fourth down call early, the Chiefs decided to roll the dice, and the gamble worked on a sloppy track.
After a Jamaal Charles conversion, he finished with a 2-yard touchdown run to stake the Chiefs to a 10-0 lead. Alex Smith has hit a few passes, but defense and a 60-yard punt return by Dexter McCluster have done most of the damage.
The Redskins look a bit out of sorts, and with the turmoil they’re dealing with off the field, getting in an early hole, in front of half a stadium of fans, against a better team is about the worst possible start.
