The Washington Redskins enter Sunday’s contest having something to prove, but they aren’t the only team on the field looking to get back on track. The Redskins will play a Kansas City Chiefs team that has dropped three tough contests in a row and are hoping to rebound against Washington. The Redskins are officially out of the playoff race, but with a 3-9 season, all jobs are on the line especially that of quarterback Robert Griffin III. The former Heisman trophy winner has struggled in his second NFL season, and many are calling for the quarterback’s job.

Offense: With the poor weather conditions, both teams will hope to establish a steady dose of their running games. It will be a matchup of top running backs Jamaal Charles and Alfred Morris, and the game will be determined by who limits the turnovers giving opposing offenses short fields to work.
Defense: Both defenses have struggled in the past few weeks, and expect both to show improvement with the aid of the snow. I expect both defenses to cause turnovers and wreak havoc in Washington.
Prediction: Redskins 17- Chiefs 21
