Chiefs vs. Redskins: A brief history

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The two teams have played eight times, with Kansas City owning the matchup.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins will meet Sunday, with both teams vying to end losing streaks.

For the Chiefs, it's about getting to 10-3 and clinching a playoff berth with a loss by either the Miami Dolphins or the Baltimore Ravens. The Redskins are simply trying to gain respectability, sitting at 3-9.

The history between these two teams does not have any real memorable game, save the 1971 contest in which both teams entered undefeated at 5-0. The Chiefs fell behind but scored late to win on a 27-yard Otis Taylor touchdown catch.

Kansas City has only lost once to Washington, back in 1983. Outside of that, the Chiefs are 7-1 including their most recent victory, which took place in 2009 and was Todd Haley's first as head coach.

Andy Reid is 17-11 all-time against Washington, his best mark against any NFC East excluding the Philadelphia Eagles.

The two teams have not shared many great players. Trent Green is the most notable, going from Washington after two seasons to the St. Louis Rams before becoming a Chief. Shawn Barber also played for both teams, along with Todd Collins and Greg Manusky. Marty Schottenheimer coached both, albeit a one-year stint with the Redskins.
