1. Chiefs-Seahawks scouting report

By Randy Covitz - The Kansas City Star

"When the Chiefs run


Jamaal Charles continues to churn out yards, and the Chiefs rank fifth in the league in rushing. Charles still hasn't hit a home run, though his season-long 39-yard TD on fourth-and-1 at Buffalo was a biggie. Seattle has allowed a league-low 3.2 yards a carry, but the last time the Seahawks faced a decent offense, they allowed a season-most 162 yards rushing in a loss to Dallas. And now they're without starting DT Brandon Mebane."    READ MORE…

2. Chiefs' defenders preparing for a collision with Beast Mode

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"Like most of the Chiefs, one would imagine, linebacker Tamba Hali has seen the Beast Quake.

That was the darting, powerful 67-yard touchdown run that put Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch on the map, helped the Seahawks beat the Saints in the 2011 NFC playoffs and officially put opponents on notice: if you dare to tackle any player aptly nicknamed "Beast Mode," you better bring it."    READ MORE…

3. Five reasons to hate the Chiefs' opponents: Week 11, the Seahawks

By The Kansas City Star - The Kansas City Star

"It gives us great joy that Team Perfect is showing stress fractures this season.

That's right, the Seattle Seahawks, last season's darlings of the NFL, roll into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday with the same record as the Chiefs: 6-3. Their aura of invincibility has been punctured this season, and one by one, some of the most key pieces of their winning mix from 2013 have either defected to other teams or succumbed to season-ending injuries."    READ MORE…

4. Five matchups to watch: Seahawks at Chiefs

By Clare Farnsworth -

"Chiefs' defense vs. Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch. The Seahawks' Beast Mode back ran for a career-high four touchdowns in last week's game against the Giants. The last back to run for a TD against the Chiefs was the Colts' Donald Brown – in Week 16 last season. That's right, the Chiefs have yet to allow a rushing touchdown this season, despite facing the Dolphins' Lamar Miller (six), Jets' Chris Ivory (five), Rams' Benny Cunningham (four), 49ers' Frank Gore (three) and Chargers' Brendan Oliver (three), who have combined for 21 rushing TDs. Ivory (108) and Gore (107) had 100-yard rushing performances against the Chiefs, but did not find the end zone. Now comes Lynch, who has 12 touchdowns in nine games (nine of the team's league-high 14 rushing; three receiving). Between the goal lines, the Chiefs are allowing averages of 115.6 rushing yards per game and 4.7 yards per carry. Lynch is averaging 76.6 rushing yards per game and 4.5 per carry. An interesting twist to this matchup will be how the Chiefs respond to the success QB Russell Wilson had running the read-option against the Giants (107 yards on 14 carries). If they pay too much attention to the possibility of Wilson going one way, it could open things up for Lynch going the other way."    READ MORE…

5. Playoff percentages on Sunday's result at Kansas City

By Terry Blount -

"The team that wins Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium between the Seattle Seahawks and the Kansas City Chiefs should feel good about its chances of making the playoffs.

And the team that doesn't win? Not as much."    READ MORE…
