Redskins news: Kirk Cousins says Week 4 matchup vs. Chiefs will be a ‘dogfight’

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins made a mincemeat of the Oakland Raiders on Sunday and pocketed a 27-10 victory for their second win of the season.

The Redskins dominated Oakland on both ends of the field. The offense, for one, was clicking on all cylinders, especially in the air with Cousins masterfully running the show. The former Michigan State Spartan put up a clinic, going 25 of 30 for 365 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. There was barely anything the Raiders could do to throw Cousins off his game.

Washington is now on a two-game win streak which gives their next game against the Kansas City Chiefs more spice to its narrative. The Chiefs are undefeated, improving to 3-0 on the season after walloping the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, 24-10.

One team’s win streak is bound to end, but before that happens, Cousins is seeing a tightly contested game between two of the hottest teams in the NFL today. During an appearance on NFL Gameday, the quarterback tells Deion Sanders that the showdown in Kansas City next week is one he’s certainly looking forward to.

“We got the Chiefs ahead at Arrowhead and that’s going to be a dogfight.”

Cousins made a significant allusion to a dogfight in talking about that game since both the Redskins and the Chiefs are inside the top 10 of total offense in the league.

Washington is eighth with 373.7 total yards per game, while the Chiefs are third with 397.3. Having said that, that game might come down to being decided by the team that’ll put forward a better performance on the defensive end.
