  • Kicker Harrison Butker converts crucial field-goal on NFL debut
  • 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.

Kirk Cousins will be the first quarterback in NFL history to play consecutive seasons on the franchise tag. Cousins and Washington didn’t sign a long-term deal by the deadline on Monday. He will make $23.94m on the franchise tag in 2017 after earning $19.95m last year.

Team president Bruce Allen said in a prepared statement that Washington’s goal was to sign Cousins to a long-term contract and offered him $53m guaranteed or $72m in the event of injury. That would have been the second-most fully guaranteed money given to a QB behind Aaron Rodgers’ $54m.
