Redskins vs Chiefs Red Zone Review

New, comments

This post is sponsored by Comcast's NFL RedZone Channel, which allows you to see all the action from inside the 20 for every NFL game.

Another week of football is upon and the Redskins face yet another bottom feeder. The lowly Chiefs boast a 32nd ranked defense at 402 yards a game, which is sure to drop this week.

Looking at the red zone statistics, it's interesting to see that the Redskins two least effective games inside the 20 were at home, yet those accounted for the Skins' only wins. On the flip side, the Chiefs most effective red zone games are on the road. Either way, the NFC East has been giving the Chiefs defense fits so far. Doc Walker made an interesting point on Redskins Nation the other night, which backs Joe Bugel's comfort-level, that both Stephon Heyer and Mike Williams are moving back to their natural positions this week. Heyer at left guard and Williams to right guard. The Chiefs only have 6 sacks all-season, so the Oline does have some slack when it comes to making mistakes. If the Oline does struggle, I hope Zorn has the nads to put everything on Jason and let him throw the ball 40+ times. I mean, what other option do we have?
