The Redskins deserve high praise after throttling the Raiders Sunday night, but next Monday in Kansas City, an even bigger challenge awaits. 

Remember, the Redskins put out one of their best defensive efforts in more than 20 years against Oakland.

The hig-scoring Raiders came into that game with the top scoring offense in the NFL, but managed less than 100 total yards of offense until late in the fourth quarter.

Their only points came when gifted when tremendous field position off two Redskins turnovers.

Going to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City will be an even bigger task for the Washington defense. The Chiefs are one of only two undefeated teams left in the NFL, and have speed seemingly everywhere on the field. Running back Kareem Hunt has been a missile for Andy Reid's offense, and the rookie from Toledo leads the NFL in rushing.

Through three games, Hunt has 401 yards. No other NFL runner even has 300 yards. 

Much of Oakland's offense depended on deep passing. The Redskins stopped that, cold.

Kansas City plays a more deliberate scheme of crossing patterns and space, but relies on the speed of Hunt and wideout Tyreek Hill. Greg Manusky and the Washington defense will have to recalibrate their game plan.
