The Washington Redskins had high hopes for wide receiver Terrelle Pryor when they signed him to a one-year deal this off-season away from the Cleveland Browns. Pryor was signed in an attempt to lessen the blow of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon leaving in free agency.

Jackson signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Garçon signed with the San Francisco 49ers.

Pryor had his best game thus far as a member of the Redskins on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. He had three receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown.

While those numbers indicate that he had a good game, those stats are deceiving. He had a 44-yard touchdown reception, which came on a play that was horribly defended by the Chiefs defense.

Also, on the touchdown play, it appeared that Pryor may have gotten away with a push. He also let the ball fall into his arms after the cornerback completely missed a potential interception.

Pryor also caught a pass down the middle, but on the night, it looked like his chemistry with quarterback Kirk Cousins wasn’t there. They better get a chemistry if they want to turn around their season.

Yet, he played in 43 of their 50 offensive snaps. That was the most of all the Redskins receivers.
