Last Time The KC Chiefs Played The Seattle Seahawks....

The Kansas City Chiefs last played the Seattle Seahawks in the regular season in 2006. It was Week 8 and things were much, much different. The Chiefs snagged a win - 35 to 28 - but the cast of characters doing the damage were not the same as they are today. 

QB Damon Huard was playing in place of the injured Trent Green. Huard passed for 312 yards on 17/25 passing. That's a nice 68% passing percentage. He also threw three touchdowns. Huard's average gain per pass was, ahem, 12.48 yards! That's ridiculous. He was also only sacked once. 

TE Tony Gonzalez had a Tony Gonzalez like game. He was targeted 6 times and made 6 catches. Those 6 catches went for 116 yards too. Not too shabby. 

WR Eddie Kennison had an even bigger day than Tony Gonzalez. Kennison was targeted 7 times and made 6 catches for 132 yards. It was one of his best games as a Kansas City Chief.

RB Larry Johnson got worked in this game. Herm ran LJ 39 times for 155 and three touchdowns. This Seattle game was one of many of LJ's dominant 2006 performances. RB Michael Bennett added in 38 rushing yards of his own too. 

As a team, the Kansas City Chiefs had:

  • 30 first downs;
  • Converted 46% of their third downs;
  • Scored 35 points;
  • Went 4-6 in the red zone; and,
  • Had 499 total offensive yards.
Hmmm. You think the Chiefs got a game like that in them today?
