Kansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks

NFL preseason: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington at 8:00 PM ET, Friday, August 25, 2017

The Line: Seattle -3.5

Total: 43

The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Washington to face the Seattle Seahawks in the third preseason game from the CenturyLink Field on Friday night. The Chiefs and the Seahawks both registered comfortable preseason wins in the second week.

Mahomes impresses again as Chiefs ease past Bengals

Patrick Mahomes consolidated his spot as the Kansas City Chiefs’ backup with another terrific preseason performance in their 30-12 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals. Overall, the Chiefs racked up 410 yards in a complete offensive show.

“Of course I always love a touchdown throw,” Mahomes said. “That’s the big thing, getting the ball in the end zone. I just tried to go in there and do what Alex (Smith) was doing.”

Their preseason performances, despite splitting the results, have been promising for the Chiefs. They could only manage an average of 24 points a game last season, and if they can take their preseason template into the start of the NFL season, this could be a fine year.

Fant tears ACL in preseason win

Russell Wilson had a good game, throwing 206 yards and two touchdowns in the Seattle Seahawks’ 20-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings. But still, it wasn’t a good day for the Seahawks, who lost offensive tackle George Fant to a torn ACL in his right knee.

“It’s heartbreaking. It’s so unfortunate for George,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “There are other things that follow that but my first thoughts are for George.”

The Seahawks relied on their stellar defense last season, allowing just 18.3 points per game (3rd in the NFL), but two good offensive shows in the preseason should hold them in good stead despite recent setbacks.

Trends:

Kansas City Chiefs are:

  • No key trends

Seattle Seahawks are: 

  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games.
  • 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on fieldturf.

Wilson and the rest of their starters will not get much action, save a few drives. Still, the Seahawks at home should get the job done against the Chiefs, who will prioritise rest over the result.
