Seahawks back in playoffs, Carroll gets contract extension

"They have such a diverse attack that you've got to be ready for a lot of stuff".

The Seahawks will look to pound the Chiefs with their NFL-best running game, which averages 154.9 yards.

It was an unexpected accomplishment after Seattle overhauled its roster in the offseason.

The Seattle Seahawks will be without right guard Jordan Simmons for the rest of the year after he was placed on injured reserve.

"You can hang your head and mope and do all those things you want to do, but that doesn't get anything accomplished", Kansas City coach Andy Reid said.

Under the agreement between the two countries, "catch and release" will now be replaced with "catch and return", Nielsen said. Nielsen said on Thursday that Jesus, Mary and Joseph would have been eligible for asylum in the United States.


"The times he took off and ran and created first downs for us, he looked like he was done and gone", Carroll said. As former National Football League player and scout Bucky Brooks noted Saturday on Twitter, the run-first strategy of the Ravens - and, to a similar extent, the Seahawks - puts pressure on opposing offences, who, with fewer possessions, are "almost forced to abandon a balanced approach" and instead resort to the pass.

The simplest route is if Kansas City (11-4) and New England (10-5), now the top two in the conference, both win Sunday.

"Sunday Night Football" will highlight one of the biggest games of Week 16, as Kansas City Chiefs (11-3) travel to the Emerald City to take on the Seattle Seahawks (8-6).

Playing the rookies, though, says a lot about Chiefs' desperation to fix their woeful defense.

"When it's our time to make plays and we're given opportunities to make plays, we are going to make them". Mahomes had only 83 yards passing in the first half. Damien Williams was also the leading receiver for the Chiefs, catching 6 passes for 74 yards. He also had three touchdown passes. Wilson hit tight end Ed Dickson with a 2-yard touchdown pass to cap that drive.

The looming government shutdown by the numbers
Right now, Republicans still need at least 10 Democrats to sign off on a bill before it can be passed along to Trump's desk. The bill is expected to be rejected in the Senate, and does little to prevent a shutdown on Saturday.


The Seahawks slow and steady run heavy offense is one the Chiefs have seen more than a few times this season thanks to the games against the Broncos and the Ravens.

But wait. Then the Texans became winners hours later, earning a playoff berth as they headed back to Houston on Sunday following a last-second 32-30 loss at Philadelphia that handed the AFC's No. 2 seed behind Kansas City to the Patriots - as if they need any help when the playoffs arrive.

"I think it's a much bigger statement to say that you can find ways to continue to find the success and that's the big challenge". They scored on four of five second-half possessions. Chris Carson punched it in from there to give the Seahawks another two-score lead. Both teams have injuries at key positions with Seattle down a starting safety and Reshaad Penny in addition to their line troubles and KC missing Spencer Ware and potentially Kendall Fuller, further depleting their thinnest position groups.

The Chiefs offense has slowed down quite a bit in the last few weeks and now will play in one of the most hard environments in the NFL.
