Washington Commanders vs Kansas City Chiefs 1st Half recap

Washington is down 14-7 to the Chiefs

NFL: Washington Commanders at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Washington came into Kansas City to work some things out on offense and defense, but it was a lot of the same for both sides of the ball. Third downs continue to be a problem, and the disparity between the teams was pretty evident in the first half. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs scored twice while Carson and Wentz and the Commanders couldn’t put points on the board. Taylor Heinicke came in and led a scoring drive before the half, finding Cam Sims in the endzone after both players took big hits a few plays earlier
