Here are some of the social highlights from the Redskins' 45-10 loss to the Chiefs:

Here's how the players warmed up on social media:

The Redskins defense was able to stop the Chiefs' opening drive short of the end zone, holding them to a 33-yard Ryan Succop field goal:

On their next drive, a huge 48-yard punt return from Dexter McCluster gave the Chiefs excellent starting field position inside the red zone. This time, the Redskins weren't able to hold KC out of the end zone, and Jamaal Charles picked up his 10th rushing TD of the season and a 10-0 lead for the Chiefs:

After a nice completion to Santana Moss, Griffin telegraphed his next pass and Derrick Johnson cut right into the passing lane for an easy pick and returned the ball to the Washington 25:

The Chiefs cashed in shortly thereafter. Dwayne Bowe took a pass from Alex Smith, bounced right off of Bacarri Rambo, and strolled into the end zone, putting Kansas City up 17-0:

Just inside the 2nd quarter, Jamaal Charles got his 2nd touchdown of the day, this one a 5-yard catch & run. A PAT later, the Chiefs were up 24-0:

After what appeared to be a fumble by Griffin returned for a Chiefs' touchdown, a review overturned the call and allowed the Redskins to punt. Didn't matter much, though, because McCluster took Rocca's punt 74 yards to the house for a 31-0 Kansas City lead:

The Redskins finally got on the board midway through the 2nd quarter. Logan Paulsen made a great catch, hauling in the pass from Griffin for a 7-yard score inside the 2-minute warning:

What little happiness that touchdown gave Redskins fans didn't last long. Quintin Demps took the kickoff back 95 yards for a touchdown and the Chiefs were out in front by 31 again:

In the final seconds of the half, Forbath matched his career long with a 50-yard field goal, cutting the Chiefs' lead ever so slightly to 38-10 at the half:

The Chiefs brought in rookie RB Knile Davis in the 4th quarter, and he was able to score his first NFL rushing touchdown on a 17-yard run through several attempted Redskins tackling, extending the Chiefs' lead to 45-10:

In the 4th quarter and trailing badly, Kirk Cousins came in to replace Griffin at quarterback:

It didn't help much though. It was just a matter of time until the Chiefs could kill the clock and seal the deal on a 45-10 victory:

The players were mostly quiet after the game, but Evan Royster, who suffered a lower leg injury earlier in the game, spoke up to thank fans for the well wishes:
