The Kansas City Chiefs - Arrowhead Stadium - Outside photo - Empty stands. - Matchup.On Monday night, the Kansas City Chiefs have the opportunity to remain as the sole undefeated team left in the National Football League.

In order to maintain their undefeated streak, the Chiefs will have to get past the inconsistent Washington Redskins, who are led by the even more inconsistent Kirk Cousins.

The Chiefs have a one-two punch this season - a terrific offence that is being led by Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill, as well as one of the top defences in the league. Kareem Hunt has been mind-blowingly good so far this season, as the rookie has completely dominated all three of the games that he has played so far. In addition, those expecting a drop-off in production from Tyreek Hill have been disappointed, as Hill has continued to find the endzone.

The Washington Redskins, on the other hand, have battled inconsistency and have one of the more unusual teams in the league. Pryor has been largely invisible at wide receiver so far, which has put even more pressure on Kirk Cousins to produce. In addition, the Redskins have had some injury issues at running back, though Chris Thompson picked things up in a big way last week.

The Kansas Chiefs are, unsurprisingly, one TD favorites to win on Monday night. Here are the current betting odds:

Washington Redskins, +7, 1.83
Kansas City Chiefs, -7, 2.00

Over 48 points, 1.90
Under 48 points, 1.90

Money Line

Washington Redskins, 3.40
Kansas City Chiefs, 1.33

The Washington Redskins' key to victory will be containing Kareem Hunt, though that is obviously easier said than done.

Alex Smith has been doing a good job managing the Chiefs offence, putting the ball in the hands of his team's most talented players.

There is a very large talent gulf between the Chiefs and Redskins, and it will be interesting to see how the Redskins plan on mitigating this.
