As for the Chiefs' opponent, the Seahawks could be without both starting safeties and two starters on their offensive line for Sunday night's matchup. Running the ball is the safe play, and Seattle relies on the run more than any team despite having Pro Bowl-caliber receivers and one of the best deep passers in the league.
"Knowing that we've done it, knowing that the road comes through New Orleans, that gives us a lot of confidence", Drew Brees said. Along the way, Wilson tied Dave Krieg for the franchise career record with 195 career touchdown passes.
Fresh off watching his team clinch a playoff spot with a 38-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll joined Brock Huard and Mike Salk on 710 ESPN Seattle Monday morning to recap Seattle's game.
Griffin said the Seahawks likewise wanted to contain tight end Travis Kelce, who came into the game with 1,220 yards and 10 touchdowns. And on that second touchdown - what turned out to be the winning score just before the two-minute warning - he was stopped short of the end zone, but powered his way past two would-be tacklers.
Wilson (18-of-29 for 271 yards, no turnovers) has had more prolific games.
The Chiefs drove to the 4 early in the fourth quarter.
Seattle opened the game about as well as it could have hoped. But they found a way to shut down the Chiefs' offense anyway. Baldwin looked to be injured and done for the night in the 4th quarter only to return on the same drive he got hurt and make a ridiculous one-handed bobbling grab landing at the 1 to set up a Chris Carson TD that was the difference in the game. Wilson added 57 yards, Davis had 31 and J.D. McKissic pitched in 6.

It began to look ominous when the Seahawks had to punt on their next series. He also leads the team with three forced fumbles and three interceptions.
But a Vikings loss and an Eagles win at Washington gets the defending champions (8-7) back into the postseason.
The Chiefs challenged that the pass had been tipped, but the original call stood.
That's where the half ended, with each team ruing a blown chance. I really don't have to get into much detail on the Chiefs passing game, Mahomes has the most passing yards and touchdowns in the league and it is not very close, but their rushing attack is worth looking into.
With the loss, week 17 is now meaningful for the Chiefs and the starters won't get to rest against the Raiders.
