Seahawks 28 - Chiefs 35
Final @ Arrowhead Stadium
The Seattle Seahawks (4-2) went on the road to take on the Chiefs (3-3), but couldn't hold the lead at the end. Larry Johnson scored four touchdowns, including the go-ahead score with 2:15 to play, and the Kansas City Chiefs hung on for a 35-28 victory over the injury-depleted Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks took the lead with two touchdowns in the final 17 minutes as the result of Kansas City mistakes but couldn't hold on. Seneca Wallace who made his first NFL start today in place of injured Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, threw for 198 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
Besides Hasselbeck, the defending NFC champion Seahawks were missing MVP running back Shaun Alexander, wide receiver Bobby Engram and starting guard Floyd Womack, who are all injured. Starting right tackle Sean Locklear was suspended this week for violating NFL personal conduct policy.
This was the 49th all-time meeting between the two teams. Today marks Seattle's first trip to Arrowhead Stadium since November 2001, when the Chiefs won 19-7. Seattle's last win in Kansas City was November 21, 1999, with a 31-19 final score. That season was head coach Mike Holmgren's first in Seattle.
