NFL Week 14 Cash-In
Kansas City Chiefs @ Washington Redskins
Line: Kansas City -3, O/U: 44

The Match-Up
The 9-3 Kansas City Chiefs head to Washington to take on the 3-9 Redskins. The Chiefs enter the game on a three game losing streak after dropping a pair to Denver and one to San Diego. The biggest problem has been on the defensive side of the ball, the side that to this point was considered the strength. They have given up an average of 34.3 points per game in those losses, nearly two touchdowns more than their previous nine games. That is a trend that will need to stop against RGIII and company this week if they are going to get back on track. Offensively, they have gotten away from their bread and butter running game led by one of the best back in football in Jamaal Charles. A lot of this change in game plan has been due to nature of the game and needing to rack up points quickly after falling behind. Washington gives up 108 yards per game on the ground. Look for them to go with Charles early and often as they look to exploit the Redskins on the ground.

For Washington this has been on major disappointment of a season. RGIII has taken far longer to recover than the team had hoped and their struggles in the win column are a direct result. Like the Chiefs, the Redskins boast one of the games premier rushing attacks in the league, when kicking on all cylinders. They are catching the usually stingy Chiefs defense at the right time. They have been beaten up in recent week. If Alfred Morris can get the wheels turning early they could do some real damage.

Trends
Chiefs are 5-0 SU and ATS vs. Redskins since 1992
Chiefs won and covered four straight as road chalk
Redskins are 4-14 SU past 18 games as home dogs

The Verdict
The Chiefs are too good to keep losing like this. This week they get one of the worst teams in football at this point. Look for them to pound the ball on the ground and get back to the style of football that make them so dominate for the first nine games of the season. Expect a win by a touchdown or more.

Pick: Kansas City -3
