This is one of those sneakier games on the schedule for the K.C. Chiefs.
Coming into this season, it seemed to be a very good time to play the NFC East. Some jokes might reference it as the NFC Least given the overall lackluster performances last year. It was as if every team was doing its best to not win the division.
That said, the Washington Football Team did win and they did so on the back of a tremendous young defense. That’s why this sort of matchup is a sneaky one because Washington might own the single toughest defensive unit the Chiefs will face all year. An offensive line that is still learning and growing together is going to be very tested against the best front seven in football, and Chase Young in particular is going to be a player to watch all game.
Can WFT surprise anyone? Can the Chiefs take care of business? Let’s look at the particulars.
Chiefs Injury Report vs Washington Football Team Week 6
The Chiefs are going to be without a few important defenders once again in Week 6, starting with defensive lineman Chris Jones who just cannot seem to get a wrist injury right. He missed practice all week for the Chiefs. Charvarius Ward will also miss his fourth consecutive game with a quad muscle injury, while linebacker Anthony Hitchens is listed as questionable with a knee injury although he was a full participant in practice on Friday. You can see the Chiefs full injury report here.
Terry McLaurin injury update
The Washington Football Team has a lot of injury issues coming into Week 6. The offensive line will be missing rookie tackle Sam Cosmi and veteran great Brandon Scherff. The offense will also be missing Curtis Samuel for sure. However, Terry McLaurin would be the ultimate gut punch for the team if he’s unable to go, as it kinda looks from the outside in after he missed Friday’s practice with a hamstring injury.
McLaurin is having a real coming out party so far in 2021 on a national level. He nearly hit 1,000 yards in his rookie season and broke through that mark last year. However, Washington’s pitiful offense keeps McLaurin out of the greater conversation among elite wideouts, but he’s on track to break career marks in yards and touchdowns and he’s the go-to cog in Ron Rivera’s offense. Watch for him before the game to see what “questionable” means.
Chiefs vs WFT Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Week 6
WynnBET’s Week 6 NFL odds have the Chiefs favored by 7 points on the road. For a team searching for its mojo, that’s quite a spread and bettors might like to take the points given to Washington. Then again, if the Chiefs look as desperate (and motivated) as they should on Sunday, it could be over quickly. The over/under on total points is at 55 total points, which suggests a fairly high scoring game. Washington typically doesn’t put up that many points, but the Chiefs defense tends to make every opponent look better than they really are.
