• Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable once again deserves a great deal of credit for the way the offensive line performed in this matchup. The Seahawks leaned heavily on running the ball through the middle of the defense. This complemented the play-action passing game and the offense was in a very good rhythm through the night.
• Kansas City displayed impressive play-calling as well. They appeared to key off the Seattle defensive personnel, and ran the ball more when linebacker Shaquem Griffin was in the game. They totaled 31 points in spite of two costly fumbles. The matchup was competitive, the Seahawks just gained an edge in most categories.
• Seattle’s defense deserves a great deal of credit as well. They consistently created pass pressure and confidently played zone as well as man-to-man coverage against the Chiefs renowned skill position group. The defensive philosophy certainly seems to be jelling with this new defensive group so credit to Seattle’s personnel.
