Prepare for a shootout this weekend, football fans!
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Washington Football Team are two of just six teams to allow over 400 yards of offense per game this season. Thankfully, each team's offense has propelled them to two wins, making Sunday's matchup incredibly important as one team will claw its way back to .500, while the other team takes another step back.
The WFT comes into the weekend as the underdog, which is expected as the Chiefs are the two-time reigning AFC Champions. Teams have had an easier time against Patrick Mahomes this season than in the past, but given Washington's struggles so far this season it might be best to use Taylor Heinicke and the offense as the best defense and try to outscore the Chiefs.
It's a dangerous strategy, but that's how poor the WFT defense has been this season. Despite all of the talent, it has been unable to figure it out. It would be shocking for the defense to have its breakout game against an offense as dominant as the Chiefs, so the best defense on Sunday is likely a good offense.
