What you need to know about the Chiefs
The Chiefs have already clinched the AFC West, their seventh consecutive division title, and they still have a chance at landing the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoff bracket, but will need some help, and they can't afford another loss. The betting lines would suggest that this should be a comfortable win for Kansas City, but with the weather expected to be ugly, anything can happen.
The weather may force the Chiefs to rely on their rushing attack more than they typically would against the Seahawks, which could mean rookie running back Isiah Pacheco is in store for a heavy workload. The seventh round pick out of Rutgers has emerged as the lead back in Kansas City's offense, and has totaled 480 rushing yards with two touchdowns on 95 carries in the teams last six games.
What you need to know about the Seahawks
Meanwhile, Seattle came up short against the San Francisco 49ers last Thursday, falling 21-13. Seattle was their own worst enemy and cost themselves 94 yards in penalties. No one had a standout game offensively for the Seahawks, but they got one touchdown from QB Geno Smith. Smith ended up with a quarterback rating of 90.9.
Seattle has experienced some struggles of their own as they are second worst in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game, with 161.1 on average, which could be problematic with the emergence of Chiefs rookie running back Isiah Pacheco. Still, Seattle's potent passing attack should be strong enough to keep this game close. Smith is having a career year completing 71.4% of his pass attempts for 3,671 yards, 26 touchdowns, and eight interceptions for a quarterback rating of 105.3. Running back Kenneth Walker III (ankle), tight end Noah Fant (knee) and running back Deejay Dallas (ankle) are all questionable. Receiver Tyler Lockett (hand) is out.
