Redskins' Chris Thompson continues to be matchup nightmare

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Chris Thompson is quickly becoming a matchup nightmare.

The versatile third-down back has four of the Washington Redskins' seven offensive touchdowns this season and will be a handful for the Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) next Monday night. Thompson had 150 yards receiving and a touchdown plus 38 yards rushing in Washington's 27-10 thumping of the Oakland Raiders (2-1) on Sunday night, a testament to coach Jay Gruden's play-calling and his value to the Redskins' offense.

"He can line up in the backfield, he can spread them out wide, he can catch the football," receiver Jamison Crowder said. "He definitely gives you mismatches against the defense. He's just a great player. He has the speed. He's not that big of a guy, but he has the speed, the toughness and he just makes plays."
