Happy Holidays, everyone!
The Seattle Seahawks (7-7) have not had a December to remember, having lost their grip on a playoff spot over the past couple of weeks. With just one win over their last five games the Seahawks find themselves potentially needing to win out to qualify for the postseason. The first task is a seemingly impossible one against the Kansas City Chiefs (11-3), winners of the AFC West once again and in the mix for the top seed in the conference.
Patrick Mahomes is having another MVP caliber season even without Tyreek Hill as his top receiver. Kansas City is tops in the NFL in scoring, which is a recipe for disaster for a Seahawks team that is near the bottom in the league in points allowed. The Chiefs defense may be anchored by Chris Jones but overall they have also had their struggles, so if there was ever a time for Geno Smith and company to get back on track, now is that time. However, the Seahawks will be without wide receiver Tyler Lockett as he recovers from finger surgery, and it’s slated to be an extremely cold afternoon with temperatures in the teens. Not ideal for high-octane offense!
If the Seahawks win they could move back into a wild card spot if other results go their way. A loss and they are on the brink of elimination after a 6-3 start.
