NFL: Chiefs 14, Redskins 6

Associated Press
LANDOVER, Md. ó Jim Zorn stood alone on the sideline Sunday, his headset off, his arms folded across his chest, hearing the dwindling crowd’s boos and watching the seconds tick away on his Washington Redskins’ latest loss to a previously winless team.Zorn began his postgame news conference with a loud, lengthy sigh into the microphone. And the coach kept on sighing as he discussed Washington’s 14-6 setback against the Kansas City Chiefs, which dropped the Redskins to 2-4 this season and 4-10 over their past 14 games.
“I’ve got to be better. And it really irritates me. Truly irritates me,” Zorn said. “And I’m just not going to rest until I get that taken care of.”
The heat on Zorn is sure to increase leading up to Washington’s next outing: a high-profile Monday night game Oct. 26 against Philadelphia, which is followed by the Redskins’ bye week.
“Winning would help,” linebacker London Fletcher said.
As it is, the Redskins are the first team in NFL history to face six consecutive winless opponents.
