Additionally, Seattle is banged up right now.

The Chiefs are bad just about everywhere on defense, but stopping the run is something they've been unable to do for awhile now.

This one really boils down to the Chiefs being able to stop the run. Kansas City has won the previous three games over the Seahawks, including a 24-20 victory in their last meeting during the 2014 season. Give me K.C.in a close one. "I wouldn't call them overrated, but I would suggest they're not as good without Kareem Hunt". The Seahawks' offense is slow and methodical. But it was Seattle's next drive that stood out as the best run team in the National Football League put the game on the arm of its quarterback and receivers in the fourth quarter. They allow 283 passing yards per game and 127 rushing yards per game, which ranks last and 26th in the league, respectively. Now, Roberts has spotted huge value in the Chiefs vs. Seahawks odds. The Seahawks could have clinched a playoff birth with a win last week but will have to wait at least one more week for that opportunity. Imagine what Wilson will do. The second half was a different story, starting out with a seven-play drive, which was capped off by a handsome throw to Charcandrick West for a touchdown. "I'm always in the business of proving people wrong". Kansas comes into this game with an 11-3 record, and are now tied with the Los Angeles Chargers for the best record in the AFC.

"Sleepless in Seattle" was the title of a 1993 movie, the title right now could also explain the current feelings of the Seattle Seahawks players and their fans.

However, Seattle will also be playing for their season, since a playoff berth is dependent on a win.

Wilson is doing his best to do more with less. He's won a Super Bowl, a couple national championships and served as the architect of one of the best defenses in NFL history. Reed returned to a full practice Friday, though, after missing Thursday's workout.

I take the Chiefs redeeming themselves this week.

As for the Chiefs' opponent, the Seahawks could be without both starting safeties and two starters on their offensive line for Sunday night's matchup. The one wrinkle that Seattle has that neither if those teams did, is an elite quarterback in Russel Wilson. The over/under for total points scored is set at 53.5 points. The defense did its job on those plays; Mahomes was simply better.

I think it'll be another close one for the Chiefs, but with both teams fighting for playoff positioning, I believe a desperate Chiefs team is way more risky than a Seattle team that struggled with the 49ers. This game will have similar vibes to the Philadelphia game in 2017 where the Seahawks contained the high flying offense at home until the forth quarter when Mahomes will keep things interesting, but ultimately Seattle will control the ball and pull out the victory.
