Aaron Curry's First Big Play

Seattle substituted Craig Terrill for Brandon Mebane to start the Chiefs third offensive series then allowed 27 yards and two first downs on the first four plays. They were all runs. 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.


Curry surges around left tackle Brandan Albert, nearly untouched. Grant slices hard in and draws Darling's block. Wilson charges from the third level. Curry closes on Johnson as he's taking the handoff and tracks him towards the edge. Leroy Hill is cut blocked by fullback Mike Cox and extends into a superman position before falling to the ground. Curry tackles Johnson from behind for no gain. Wilson piles on. Unaware of the play ending, a pulling Rudy Niswanger attempts to block Tatupu. Tatupu stops him and throws him to the ground.
