After an ugly performance Sunday, Washington’s offense looks to bounce back against Kansas City.

Washington had arguably their worst showing on offense this past week. Without weapons on offense, Heinicke looked towards McLaurin more than he should have. Lattimore had him shut down most of the day. Heinicke threw two interceptions and looked off all afternoon. Luckily for him and the offense, they have a terrible KC defense coming to town.

Biggest Advantage

Washington should have a big game on the ground. KC has given up 705 yards on the ground with nine touchdowns. They also allow 5.2 yards per attempt.

Since Washington is without Logan Thomas and Curtis Samuel has been limited all season, I expect Scott Turner to lean on the run Sunday. The status of Dyami Brown and Cam Sims is still unknown due to injuries. Brown has been limited at practice while Sims DNP.

The combo of Gibson, Patterson, and Carter put together 84 yards on the ground last week against a good Saints defense. Heinicke is also a threat on the ground, accounting for 127 yards and seven first downs this season.

Bounceback Game for Heinicke?

So far this season, Heinicke has bounced back after bad losses. In the two games after losses, Heinicke has gone 57-79 for 626 yards and five touchdowns, and one interception. Both of those games were against bad defenses, but they were not as bad as KC’s defense.

Heinicke has shown he is mentally tough and can bounce back. My biggest worry is if he gets into a shootout, he might force too many throws. If he can have more receiving weapons around him this week, we could see his best game yet.

The Chiefs give up the most yards in the league and allow teams to convert in the red zone. They are the 5th worst team giving up a touchdown in the red zone, 77.3%. They also don’t force many turnovers. KC has not forced any since week two.

Bold Predictions

Washington will have over 450 total yards on offense. The Chiefs are allowing 437.4 yards a game. In each game after a loss, Washington has had over 400 yards in each game, 407 and 412.

McLaurin will have his first 150-yard receiving performance of his career. I just have a feeling. He feels due for a career performance. While I feel they need to run the ball to control the game, this will likely be a shootout. Terry will get his chances and he will ball out.
