The Kansas City Chiefs faced a deficit on Monday Night and they rallied to win the game 29-20. Harrison Butker hit the go-ahead 43-yard field goal with four seconds remaining. When Washington had one last chance, Justin Houston recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown.

Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass to Terrelle Pryor in the first quarter. Pryor finished with 3 catches for 70 yards receiving and a touchdown. With the Chiefs trailing 10-0 in the second-quarter, Alex Smith threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce. Kelce finished with 7 catches for 111 yards receiving and a touchdown.

In the third quarter, Alex Smith scored on a 1-yard touchdown run. Smith completed 27-of-37 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown, along with 56 rushing yards on 7 carries and a touchdown. Later in the third, Kirk Cousins threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant. Cousins completed 14-of-24 passes for 220 yards and 2 touchdowns, along with 38 rushing yards on 7 carries.

With the Redskins trailing 20-17 late in the game on third down, Cousins threw a great pass to Josh Doctson and it would have been a touchdown until he dropped it at the last second and they had to settle with a 40-yard field goal and the rest of the game was history.

The Redskins will be on a bye week. The Chiefs will travel to Houston to face the Texans (2-2) on Sunday Night. Kansas City is the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL.
