Defense Shut Down Seattle

The Kansas City Chiefs gave up a deep pass and two-point conversion to lose to the Seahawks on Saturday, but nobody should think that means the defense didn’t play well.  In fact, the Kansas City Chiefs put up a very dominant performance on defense that stifled Seattle for around 59 minutes.

Interceptions, sacks, forced fumbles, fourth down stands, broken up passes…the Chiefs defense was doing all of the things that we expect from them.  That is especially true of the first and second team guys who didn’t give the Seahawks an inch of breathing room.  Bob Sutton’s unit showed up to play, and they looked ready to go.

 Of course there were some areas that need to be worked on, but the starters looked solid even without Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, and Eric Berry on the field.  The young talent on the roster also flashed, showing signs of promise for the future, like Dadi Nicholas who recorded a sack late in the game.  The defense has been the team’s strength, and it appears they will continue to be.
