Locked on Chiefs: Monday Night Football preview
By Chris Clark
Matt Derrick of Chiefsdigest.com returns to Locked on Chiefs to talk the Redskins and the injuries to the Chiefs for this week.
Kansas City is set to host Monday Night Football for the first time in three years. The last time the Chiefs played in Arrowhead on Monday night they clobbered the Patriots 41-14. Arrowhead will be rocking. The fans will be sure to remind Seattle to whom the loudest stadium in the NFL belongs.
One of the keys to this game will be how Kirk Cousins is able to play in the hostile confines of Arrowhead. On Monday night the stadium will be deafening and he will have a hard time communicating with his offense. Kansas City needs to make him uncomfortable early in the game. If they can do that it will go a long way to getting a victory. The Redskins running game could help Cousins but they will have to continue their success they had last week. That isn’t as likely against the Chiefs who have a much more stout defense than the Raiders.

The Redskins defense will need to be at the top of their game as well with the weapons the Chiefs have. Kansas City didn’t use superstar tight end Travis Kelce much last week and were still able to put up points. Kareem Hunt has been on a tear this season and faces a tough challenge on Monday night. With Hunt and Kelce attacking the middle of the field it could open up space for Tyreek Hill. Hill’s ability seems to shine brightest when it’s a primetime game, which is great for the Chiefs as they play four of their next five in primetime.
