Chiefs 24, Seahawks 20: First impressions

Bob Condotta: Seattle’s season is hitting an urgent stage now after a loss in the first of a six-game stretch against teams that all won 10 or more games last season. And Seattle may have suffered another huge injury if center Max Unger is out for any extended period of time.​

Jayson Jenks: The loss of defensive tackle Brandon Mebane took a noticeable toll on Seattle’s defense. Mebane had been one of the Seahawks’ best and most consistent defenders this season, but he was lost for the season last week against the Giants. The Chiefs controlled the line of scrimmage in his absence and rushed for 190 yards, the most given up by the Seahawks this season.​

Larry Stone: The Seahawks were in position to win the game in the fourth quarter – twice – but couldn’t convert on fourth-and-goal from the 2, and fourth-and-1 from the KC 36. The loss of Max Unger was huge in stifling their running game. The road back to the Super Bowl is steeper than ever.
