Here’s a look back at the Redskins’ last win over the Chiefs, and the six mostly lopsided losses by a combined score of 191-69 in the 34 years since then. 18, 1983, at RFK Stadium: Redskins 27, Chiefs 12 After losing their previous two meetings with Kansas City in 19, the Redskins overcame a 12-0 halftime deficit for their first and only win in the series. The Redskins sacked Kenney five times in the second half, and Washington’s offense, which converted its first third down with eight minutes remaining in the third quarter, eventually got rolling.
Chiefs quarterback Bill Kenney completed 16 of 33 passes for 275 yards . Rookie Darrell Green’s third-quarter interception set up a two-yard touchdown run by John Riggins that pulled the Redskins to 12-10 and Joe Theismann threw a pair of touchdown passes to help Washington pull away. Albans graduate Nick Lowery accounted for all of the Chiefs’ points with four first-half field goals, including a 58-yarder that matched an AFC record at the time. 15, 1992, at Arrowhead Stadium: Chiefs 35, Redskins 16 The Chiefs scored on their first four possessions to build a 28-0 halftime lead, while the Redskins’ offense couldn’t get anything going before the break.
Meanwhile, Redskins running backs Ernest Byner, Ricky Ervins and Robert Green combined for 17 carries and 38 yards.
But all 1,182 are important to give us a true sense of expected value at each of the 60 annual slots.
Using NBA Math's total points added (TPA) model, we've broken down the careers of every draftee since '97 to determine average TPA per season by pick. 1 selection should produce 33.42 TPA per season, while the final pick of the draft sits at minus-13.55 TPA, as you can see from the regression here.
30, 2001, at Fed Ex Field: Chiefs 45, Redskins 13 “I’m as disappointed as I have been at any time in my coaching experience,” Redskins Coach Marty Schottenheimer said after the Redskins fell to 0-3 with a season point differential of 112-16. Washington quarterback Tony Banks threw for only 116 yards in defeat.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been through anything like this. “It’s pretty bad,” Redskins defensive lineman Kenard Lang said.
Given Washington’s brutal history of “Monday Night Football” games at Fed Ex Field — they’re 2-16 since the stadium opened in 1997 — it might be a blessing that the team’s latest shot at the Chiefs comes on the road.
Washington is 4-3 in road Monday night games since 1997, while the Chiefs are 5-3 at home during that span. “I haven’t seen that many passes in one half since I played touch football in high school,” Redskins free safety Mark Murphy said after the game.“I don’t even want to show my face outside this locker room.” Oct.16, 2005, at Arrowhead Stadium: Chiefs 28, Redskins 21 Led by Mark Brunell’s 331 yards passing, including a 78-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss, the Redskins outgained the Chiefs by more than 100 yards. 18, 2009, at Fed Ex Field: Chiefs 14, Redskins 6 Four Ryan Succop field goals and a safety in the final minute accounted for the Chiefs’ scoring in a game that featured barely 500 yards of total offense.The expected TPA per season was then compared to each player's actual score.Career longevity was factored in by giving proportional weight to players who exceeded or fell short of expectations for longer periods of time.“These are tough times,” Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs said after Washington’s second blowout loss in three weeks dropped the team to 6-4.
