When it comes to the preseason, it’s the starters and rookies who matter most, and the starters did as well as they could. Both the offensive and defensive starters got two drives each, and the offense scored two touchdowns to go with two punts forced by the defense.
The backups weren’t as dominant, giving up a touchdown to a mix of starters and backups to make it 14-7 at half.
The 2nd half was all backups, and it was more of a defensive struggle. The Chiefs added a field goal early in the 3rd to expand the lead, and while Washington scored a 4th quarter touchdown to make it close Chris Lammons got a late interception that set the offense up inside the 10 yard line. The resulting touchdown was a bit awkward but the 7 points put the game out of reach.
