Like last week's game against the Arizona Cardinals, the Kansas City Chiefs hold plenty of statistical advantages in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. The Chiefs really do have some nice stats this year, especially compared to the NFC West.

The Chiefs enter the game with the 9th ranked offense at 362 yards per game which matches up nicely with the Seahawks 28th ranked defense giving up 388 yards per game. the Chiefs are 10th in points per game at 24.3 while the Seahawks give up 23.3 points per game. The Chiefs No.1 ranked rush offense will have another chance to shine against the Seahawks 13th ranked rush defense.

Defensively the Chiefs hold plenty of advantages as well. KC is currently 12th in the NFL giving up 20.7 points per game while the Seahawks rank 27th scoring 18.5 points per game. According to the stats, the Seahawks don't do anything exceptionally well.

The Chiefs haven't lost to the NFC West since 2002 and hold a 31-18 all-time record against Seattle, who were in the same division as the Chiefs from 1977-2001. Dating back to 1990, the Chiefs are 7-6 in Seattle, but have lost four of their last five.

The Cardinals game last week saw similar stat matchups as Arizona ranked near the bottom in many of the major statistical categories. We'll see if those stats lead to a similar result this week.
