Attention, fantasy football players. The NFL has made some statistical changes in the Chiefs’ game at Washington that could affect your results.

Here they are:

• Dwayne Bowe’s receiving yards were increased from 69 to 70 when his touchdown catch from Alex Smith was adjusted from 21 to 22 yards.

• Jamaal Charles’ rushing yards were increased from 151 to 152 when given an extra yard for a first-quarter run.

• Wide receiver Dexter McCluster lost 2 yards, not 1 on a first-quarter pass from Smith.

• Linebacker Derrick Johnson’s return of an interception was increased from 40 to 41 yards.

The snow and mud on the field made it hard to determine yard lines, which led to the changes in the official stats.
