The Seattle Seahawks will be trying to improve their playoff standings when they face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. The game will be played at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, December 23. It is scheduled to begin at 8:20 PM. ET.
Also, the Chiefs will be trying to bounce back from their loss. The loss was to the Los Angeles Chargers. It dropped KC to a 11-3 record. Also, it moved them into a tie with the Chargers in the AFC West. They will face another difficult challenge against a Seattle team that is difficult to beat at home.
Patrick Mahomes continues to play well for the Chiefs and will be counted on to lead the team to victory in what will be a very hostile environment. However, the Chiefs will need to get more production from the running back position, which has been a problem since they released Kareem Hunt.
Defensively, the Chiefs also need to play better. Better than they have in their last three games. The defense will have to do it without Kendall Fuller. Fuller who recently underwent wrist surgery and is expected to miss this game.
NFL Week 16
The Seahawks had a chance to increase their lead in the NFC playoff standings over sixth place Minnesota, but they laid an egg in their last game, losing to the three-win San Francisco 49ers. They will try to bounce back from the unexpected loss with a win over the Chiefs.
Seattle has played well offensively this season. However, they don’t have the firepower to keep up with the Chiefs and will need to play very well on the defensive end to give themselves a chance to win this game.
Russell Wilson is having one of the best seasons of his career. He has completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 3,025 yards, 31 touchdowns, and six interceptions. They will need him to be at his best if they want to get the win over the Chiefs.
The Chiefs are favored to win the game by 2.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 53.
The Chiefs are the better team but they will be playing in a tough arena and will struggle without a consistent running game. Take the Seahawks +2.5.
