Seahawks Dominate Chiefs In Preseason But KC Wins When It Matters

The last time the Seattle Seahawks visited the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium during the regular season Damon Huard had 300-plus yards passing and both Eddie Kennison and Tony Gonzalez had 100-plus receiving yards in a 35-28 victory.

That game, back in October 2006, was the last regular season meeting between the Chiefs and Seahawks at Arrowhead. Unfortunately for KC and their 32-18 all-time regular season record against the Seahawks, this game is taking place in the preseason, where Seattle has shown a decided advantage.
The Seahawks and Chiefs have only played in four preseason games against the Seahawks -- the two were in the AFC West together from 1977-2001 -- and Seattle has won every one.

The last one came in 2009 when Matt Hasselbeck threw two touchdown passes to lead the Seahawks to a 14-10 victory. The highlight of that game from a Chiefs perspective was Brandon Flowers, then in his second year, picking off a pass and taking it all the way to the house. (Which means KC didn't score a touchdown...which is about right for that time frame.)

The last time the two teams met in the preseason or regular season was back in 2010 when the Chiefs were en route to the AFC West crown. Matt Cassel blew up that day throwing four touchdown passes -- three of those to Dwayne Bowe, who had a career high 13 receptions for 170 yards.

The Chiefs have won 9 of the last 10 regular season games at Arrowhead. They'll be looking for their first preseason victory over the Seahawks on Friday night.
