Deon Grant was charged with illegal contact on the fifth play. Mebane substituted for Terrill. And then, Aaron Curry made his formal introduction to the National Football League.

1-10-SEA 44 (:49) 27-L.Johnson up the middle to SEA 44 for no gain (59-A.Curry).

Kansas City is split two-wide left. Ken Lucas is covering Dwayne Bowe in the left flat. Curry is playing over Devard Darling in the left slot, with Josh Wilson aligned deep over both. Deon Grant is positioned opposite the right tight end. Lofa Tatupu and Leroy Hill are semi-bunched across the offensive right.

Curry shifts down to attack the left "C" gap. Darling motions right. Wilson follows him but retains deep cover.
