KANSAS CITY, Mo. — About 10 minutes into Monday night’s game, the Chiefs looked like they were toast. Nothing was working on either side of the ball, and they were poised to fall behind by two touchdowns to the Washington Redskins at Arrowhead Stadium.
They came to life not a minute too late and showed why they’re the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team at 4-0 by holding Washington to a field goal on that drive and then winning 29-20. With four seconds left in the game, rookie kicker Harrison Butker hit a 43-yard field goal. On the game’s final play, Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston scored a touchdown on a fumble return.
The Chiefs went through more than a few anxious moments en route but found a way to overcome a stubborn opponent in perhaps their most difficult test of the season.
