  • Washington fall to 2-2 in NFC East after loss on Monday Night Football

Signed off the Carolina practice squad earlier in the week, Butker missed a 46-yarder in the first half before hitting three attempts in the second. The first tied the score 17-17, the next gave the Chiefs the lead and the last made Kansas City (4-0) the league’s only undefeated team. The Chiefs put an exclamation point on the win when linebacker Justin Houston picked up a fumble as Washington (3-2) were trying to keep the game alive and returned it for a game-ending touchdown.
