The Kansas City Chiefs completed a successful business trip on Sunday, defeating the Washington Redskins in their Week 14 matchup, 45-10. The Chiefs tenth win of 2013 was a result of a three-phase, phenomenal effort, spearheaded by the team's head coach, Andy Reid.
REID GETS TO 150: With Sunday’s victory, Andy Reid now has 150 wins (140 regular season, 10 postseason). Coach Reid becomes the 21st NFL coach to win 150 games.
Charles now has 1,162 yards on 238 carries (4.9 avg.), marking the ninth-best single-season rushing total in franchise history.
"It was snowing and I couldn’t really see where the white line was," Charles said of his TD run. "But, I saw the free safety in the hole, on my first touchdown, and I had to get up in there; I couldn’t let anybody stop me and I grinded it in there."

Demps’ 95-yard kickoff return comes one week after RB
Quintin described his TD return, after the game.
"I had just got scored on," Demps said. "So, I was like, ‘I can redeem myself, right here’ and I told myself, 'If I get the ball, I’m going to hit it as hard as I can' and that’s what I did; I followed great blocking.”
"It was a simple slant route," Bowe said of his TD. "When we get deep down in the red zone, there’s something about me that I have to get in that end zone. Alex threw a great ball; I caught it, made one guy miss and just plowed my way in there."
