WP: Turnovers Continue to Be Issue As Redskins Fall to Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 16 -- Each week, Washington Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs receives a package from his old buddy Dick Vermeil, detailing the bleak odds of winning NFL games when teams turn the ball over more often than they take it away. Much has changed since these grandfathers were in their coaching heyday 20 years ago, but this statistic stands still reigns supreme, reinforced in the coaches' reunion today when Vermeil's Chiefs trumped Gibbs's Redskins, 28-21, at Arrowhead Stadium based largely on turnover margin.
