Seahawks, Chiefs have more in common than you might think in 2nd preseason game
Two teams with more in common than one might think meet in their second preseason game when Seattle visits Kansas City.
Start with the offensive line: Both teams have no idea who will be starting when the regular season rolls around.
The NFC champion Seahawks have tried five options at left guard in camp, the latest move taking right tackle Justin Britt and sliding him over, all while converted defensive lineman Drew Nowak tries to play center.
The Chiefs have had a different front five every week in practice, and are now without left tackle Eric Fisher because of a high-ankle sprain, and right tackle Jeff Allen because of a knee injury.
Both teams also have dynamic defenses, though both could be missing key players. All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman is unlikely to play for Seattle. All-Pro safety Earl Thomas will not. Fellow safety Kam Chancellor’s holdout hit Week 3 on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Kansas City will be without Pro Bowl defensive tackle Dontari Poe, who had back surgery over the summer and is out for all of training camp.
Coverage starts at 4 p.m. Friday on Q13 FOX, your official Seahawks station.
