Defensive lineman Tyson Jackson was one of two Chiefs to record two sacks Week 14 at Washington. The difference for he and Tamba Hali is that Jackson had never done it before. He entered the game with only two sacks all season and none since Week 6.
Jackson also had four tackles, including two solo.
The Chiefs got a sack each from defensive back Eric Berry and linebacker Frank Zombo Week 14 at Washington. For Berry, it was his first since Week 12, giving him 3 1/2 on the season. For Zombo, it was his first all year.
Berry finished with five tackles, all solo. Zombo had two, one solo.
Marques Colston doubles his season touchdown total

Saints receiver Marques Colston, who had one touchdown in his last 11 games, caught a pair of scoring passes in the Week 14 win over Carolina. He finished with nine catches for 125 yards and the two touchdowns, giving him four scores this season.
Colston caught 6- and 15-yard scores in the second quarter and had a third-quarter touchdown grab overturned on review. Officials ruled Colston's knee was down before he stretched the ball over the goal line.
Targeted a team-high 13 times, Colston registered his second 100-yard game this season. He became the first Saints receiver to surpass 8,000 receiving yards, 87th in NFL history.
Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali, who had gone five sacks without a sack after recording nine in the previous five, got back on track with two sacks Week 14 at Washington. He also had a team-high six tackles, including five solo.
Hali is averaging 3.3 tackles in 13 games this season.
Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson wasn't as productive as usual with the tackles Week 14 at Washington, recording four, three solo. But he did record his first interception of the season, intercepting Robert Griffin III in the first quarter.
Chiefs defensive back Quintin Demps didn't make much of an impact defensively Week 14 at Washington, recording two tackles, none solo. But he did return a kick for a touchdown for the first time this season, taking the ball 95 yards in the second quarter.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was held under 200 passing yards for the third time in five games Week 14. He completed 22 of 34 throws for 160 yards and a garbage-time touchdown in the blowout loss at New Orleans.
Newton averaged 4.7 yards per attempt, his second-lowest average this season. While he ran six times for 48 yards, including an early 19-yard scramble, it was not enough to salvage his Fantasy performance. Newton's lone score came with 5:22 left when he hit Steve Smith from 17 yards out on 4th down.
Newton found himself under heavy pressure, taking five sacks. He held the ball too long as he waited for receivers to separate. At least he did not commit a turnover.
Newton should play better Week 15, when Carolina hosts the Jets.
The Redskins defense didn't have too much trouble with the Chiefs offense in Week 14, limiting it to just 347 yards. But thanks to the failures of the Redskins offense and, more notably, their special teams, the Chiefs ended up with 45 points on the day.
Two of the Chiefs' touchdowns were on special teams -- a punt return for Dexter McCluster and a kick return for Quintin Demps. The Redskins couldn't get anything going offensively, accumulating 257 yards, which gave the Chiefs all the more opportunities to score. The Redskins didn't do much to take the ball away either, recording one interception and zero sacks.
The Redskins have what appears to be a more favorable matchup Week 15 at Atlanta, but given their struggles in recent weeks, you should probably avoid the Redskins DST in Fantasy.
