In what is considered to be the most meaningful preseason game, the Seahawks looked every bit prepared for the regular season after earning the 26-13 home victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Russell Wilson continued his strong play while commanding the Seattle offense as the QB threw for 200 yards and a score before exiting one drive into the second half.
The recently slimmed down tight end Jimmy Graham saw action in the game and caught two passes for 34 yards.
The Seahawks defense held the Chiefs out of the end zone as the lone KC touchdown came via a De’Anthony Thomas 95-yard kickoff return in the first quarter which made the score 13-10 Seattle.
Seattle sacked the KC QBs twice and forced two fumbles in the game.
Alex Smith completed 7 of 17 passes of 44 yards and the Chiefs were limited to 225 yards in the game.
Former Seahawks running back Spencer Ware suffered, what turned out to be, a PCL injury and was carted off the field.
Too much game
For years, Seattle struggled to find a suitable complement player to the force of nature running back Marshawn Lynch. Now, it appears the Seahawks may have to make some serious choices.
That is providing starter Thomas Rawls returns from injury to carry the load and C.J. Prosise continues to excel in the change-of-pace role.
But beyond that, off-season acquisition Eddie Lacey is proving to be a capable player. And the rookie out of Oklahoma State, Chris Carson, has done nothing but demonstrate that he can be dynamic and impactful when given opportunities.
Carson again made plays rushing the ball 8 times for 46 yards. The Cowboy also caught two passes for 44 yards. There’s no way Carson does not earn a spot on the final roster.
The final preseason game takes place Thursday night vs. the Oakland Raiders in the O.co Coliseum. Kickoff is set for 7:00PM Pacific time.
