Seahawks hope to continue home success against Chiefs on Sunday Night

Seattle Seahawks vs. Kansas City Chiefs Preview Tips and Odds

Kansas City is 5-2 on the road.

Styles make fights in boxing, but in the National Football League, a contrast in styles is what adds intrigue to Sunday night's game. Should the second-year quarterback enter one of the most hard venues in football and come away with a Kansas City victory, Mahomes will have answered those questions and put Kansas City potentially in position to never leave home during the postseason.

What do you think Chiefs Kingdom?

Ifedi wasn't on the injury report until Friday, as coach Pete Carroll told reporters that he tweaked his groin during a drill at Thursday's practice.

Let's get the logistics out of the way. The Chiefs control their destiny for the AFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs despite their Week 15 home loss to the Chargers, while Seattle can clinch an NFC wild-card berth with a win.

The Chiefs' scenario is even more straightforward. The obvious highlight on the KC's running game is the dismissal of Kareem Hunt in week thirteen, the Chiefs lost one of the most dynamic players in the league and that is obviously going to effect the team, but they were not an effective running team to begin with, ranking in the bottom half of the league in rushing yards coming into Sunday. The Seahawks' greatest strength is on the ground, so if the Chiefs want to lock up a top seed in the playoffs, they'll have to do something they've struggled to do all year, which is stop the run.

It's not just the stakes that make Sunday's game so compelling, though.

No one is throwing the ball better than Kansas City this season.

Patrick Mahomes is looking to earn the NFL MVP award in his first season as a starting quarterback.

The Seahawks had a swagger then. And for four successive seasons that defense allowed the fewest points in the league.

This defense is retooled. Seattle landed just two players in the 2019 Pro Bowl Game; linebacker Bobby Wagner and punter Michael Dickson.

But Seattle's best bet at keeping Kansas City's offense in check doesn't come down to its defense. His promotion gives Seattle an emergency option behind backup right tackle George Fant and he could fill in as a sixth offensive lineman in heavy formations as Fant has done most of the season. Repeatedly. While no one is throwing the ball better than Kansas City, no one runs the ball more often than Seattle. Seattle owns the NFL's top rushing offense, and that's bad news for the Chiefs' 26th-ranked rushing defense.
