KANSAS CITY, MO - AUGUST 24: A young Kansas City Chiefs fan watches during the NFL preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks at Arrowhead Stadium on August 24, 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)
KC Wolf kicks things off by body slamming two Seahawks fans in the middle of the field. He hopped on his four wheeler with what appeared to be a little KC Wolf on the back.

OMG Dwayne Bowe is about to get a snap!— Sam Mellinger (@mellinger) August 25, 2012

@mellinger OMG Dwayne Bowe is about to get a snap!
Bowe in the huddle.That's Bowe, in the huddle— Bob Fescoe (@bobfescoe) August 25, 2012
D-Bowe's first snap...
Cassel looked right at Bowe after he took that snap. Think he wanted to go to him. Breaston makes the grab instead.— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2012
Jamaal Charles had one of those ridiculous, video game-like moves where he ran to the right, stopped and cut back to the other side of the field. Just like that, a 12-yard gain. Ladies and gentleman, Jamaal Charles.
Earl Thomas lays a hit on Steve Breaston as he tried to catch in the middle of the field. Breaston dropped the ball and Seahawks players thought it was a fumble. Thomas, who made the hit, did a little flexing while his teammates, um, were still playing. The refs wised up and ruled that it was not a fumble.
Pass interference for Jalil Brown. Very next play: Braylon Edwards catches a pass over Brown for 32 yards. People are becoming wayyyy too familiar with him this game.
Through less than one quarter I can already tell this game will be remembered for Jalil Brown getting picked on bad.
Derrick Johnson sack, lets go KC!— ArrogantAries (@prettytomboy913) August 25, 2012

Also notable in the DJ sack: How many Chiefs can get held on one play?
Seahawks kick another field goal on a seven play, 59-yard drive. The Chiefs defense is giving up yards but they're holding tight on their side of the field. 6-0, Seahawks.
First target to Dwayne Bowe came when he was covered by Richard Sherman. Bowe ran roughly 15 yards down the field and Cassel threw it a little high and a little behind but the pass actually looked like it could've worked, almost like one of those Aaron Rodgers back-shoulder passes. Bowe got his hands on it but Sherman broke it up.
Did he drop it?
Upon closer look -- and a new angle -- you can tell Sherman knocks it out.
Now let's stop it and see it closer. Bowe gets his hands on it but Sherman is in the perfect spot to break that up.
FIRST QUARTER SCORE: SEAHAWKS 6 CHIEFS 0
Anthony Toribio has an ankle injury and is out of the game.
Eric Berry scared the hell out of me. Russell Wilson took off running and Berry went chasing him down. A Seahawks defender came at Berry to block him and went low causing Berry to do a complete flip in the air.
See how he looks hurt there at the end? Holy crap that's scary. However, Berry stayed in the game and appeared to be OK.
And on the very next play after the flip...Touchdown Seahawks.
Your official Dwayne Bowe first catch of the year:
Bowe is a tough receiver. This is his type of catch right here. Glad to have him back in the fold.
Baldwin, Bowe, McCluster could become a dangerous three-WR set for Chiefs.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) August 25, 2012
The Dex Factor.— Brian McGannon (@BrianMcGannon) August 25, 2012
This is the longest end of half I remember. The replacement refs let time run off the clock, reversed a call and now we are hitting another two-minute warning. Where am I?
2nd 2-minute warning, right? RT— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2012
@apdaveskretta The replacement refs in Kansas City have virtually no idea what they're doing.
Its has been 8 minutes without s snap.— kevin kietzman (@kkwhb) August 25, 2012
Time back on the clock.FREE HOCHULI!— Craig Stout (@KaloPhoenix) August 25, 2012
Cassel to DMC gets the Chiefs on the board. Cassel was facing a pass rush and stepped up in the pocket, kept his eyes down field and stayed behind the line of scrimmage to hit McCluster in the end zone for a touchdown.
And then Cassel celebrated. Please, shield your eyes:
Winston-on-Winston crime in KC. Eric Winston held/tackled Winston Guy on that Cassel TD pass to McCluster.— Brian McIntyre (@brian_mcintyre) August 25, 2012
Tantalizing to think how good— Jeff Rosen (@jeff_rosen88) August 25, 2012
#chiefs can be when McCluster doesn't have to be focal point of their offense.
This is your last shot to get on the Dexter McCluster bandwagon. Either get with it or get left behind.— Carrington Harrison (@cdotharrison) August 25, 2012
Nice job of playmaking there by Matt Cassel, escaping the rush, keeping eyes downfield, getting the ball to McCluster for the TD.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 25, 2012
Not all is going well with the Chiefs, though. The defense continues to allow Russell Wilson and the Seahawks to drive down the field.
HALFTIME SCORE: SEAHAWKS 23 CHIEFS 7
He says it best...
Let's try that again, shall we?...— Johnny Coltrane (@Chief_Wildcat) August 25, 2012
Down goes Dorsey. Glenn Dorsey went down on a play and was tended to by the Chiefs training staff. He was down for about two minutes before walking off under his own power. That plus Anthony Torbio's ankle injury and this has not been a good night for the Chiefs defensive line.
Dorsey is still sitting on the sideline, listening to Anthony Pleasant, so it doesn't appear his injury is too serious.— Kent Babb (@kentbabb) August 25, 2012
Officially, Dorsey's injury is being called a knee -- left knee.
Good grief. Seahawks' Robert Turbin goes 25 yards for the touchdown. Seahawks continue dominating, 30-7.
Seahawks TD drives: :46, 1:30 and 1:46. I mean, at least make them go two minutes.— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) August 25, 2012
Right as I say Cassel has been doing a nice job of stepping up in the pocket and driving down the field, he steps up and is stripped of the ball. Seahawks pick it up and it's a Chiefs turnover. Wow.
9:38 in the third quarter: I'm feeling really depressed right now.
Seattle CB Richard Sherman runs off field mocking the tomahawk chop after Cassel's fumble.— Kent Babb (@kentbabb) August 25, 2012
#Chiefs are getting embarrassed in their house
— Craig Stout (@KaloPhoenix) August 25, 2012
#Chiefs are getting smacked in the mouth and not doing anything about it.
Terrell Owens had a pretty incredible reception over Jacques Reeves. Russell Wilson went deep and T.O., with Reeves on him, saw the float over his head and right into his hands which were coupled up against his chest. Incredibly difficult catch.
Apparently the Seahawks would rather miss a field goal than say they were held to a punt by the Chiefs.— David Skretta (@APdaveskretta) August 25, 2012
Speechless: Cassel throws a pick-six. 75 yard return. 37-7, Seattle. Wow...
The pick-six aftermath:
Does that face not describe this game perfectly?
4:48 in the third quarter: I'm moving from depressed to just not caring. Is that bad?
That's it for Cassel...
Your "It can always get worse" interlude: Golden Tate ran a kick back 92 yards for a touchdown.
THIRD QUARTER SCORE: SEAHAWKS 44 CHIEFS 7
Fourth quarter and Chiefs' Nate Eachus is still going full steam. Check him out on this block:
You saw the offensive line celebrate after he scored a few minutes later. That's because the Chiefs have the third stringers in there and a few of those guys will make the roster. You wanna make the team, you gotta be willing to go 100 percent when you're down 37 points...like Eachus:
By the way, 98 yards for Nate Eachus tonight.
FINAL SCORE: SEAHAWKS 44 CHIEFS 14
