Picks And Predictions For Week 16 Matchup Against The Kansas City Chiefs

Local and national media members make their picks for the Week 16 game at the Kansas City Chiefs.


Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio is taking the Chiefs to beat the Seahawks 30-21 in Week 16. "It's another AFC West reunion, and the team that owns the AFC West should remind Seattle why they should be glad that they got out when they did."

Vinnie Iyer of The Sporting News has the Chiefs defeating the Seahawks 34-26 by being dynamic with utilizing their run game on top of their prolific passing game. "Seattle will stay in the game with Kenneth Walker's running and DK Metcalf working on young corners minus Tyler Lockett. The Chiefs will figure out turning more to the run in the second half while Pete Carroll makes it interesting vs. Andy Reid for a while."

Karl Rasmussen of ClutchPoints predicts the Seahawks "stun" the Chiefs in overtime for their Week 16 matchup. "They'll need to take some big risks on offense and maybe hope for Tariq Woolen to come away with a turnover on defense, but a Seahawks win against the Chiefs would do wonders for their playoff push. I'm expecting this game to go to OT, despite the Chiefs' being considerable favorites, and for Seattle to come away with a jaw-dropping victory."


Listen To The Seahawks Insiders Podcast

Hosted by sideline reporter Jen Mueller and Seahawks Senior Digital Media Reporter John Boyle, the Seahawks Insiders podcast takes an in-depth look at each week's Seahawks game and analyzes the previous week's matchup. Available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and wherever else you get your podcasts.

Matt Verderame of Fansided is picking the Chiefs to win at home against the Seahawks 30-23. "The Chiefs keep everybody in the game with their abysmal turnover ratio, but Kansas City has too much firepower for the sliding Seahawks."

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports NFL has the Chiefs "crushing" the Seahawks 35-21 in their Week 16 matchup. "The Chiefs are winning games, but they have looked off the past few weeks. Seattle has also struggled the past few games. This is a must-win for them, but this is a tough place to play. Their defense has major issues, which will show up here as Patrick Mahomes lights them up."

3 staff members of Fansided's "12th Man Rising" are taking the Seahawks to upset the Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium for Week 16. "The good thing is Geno Smith of the Seahawks can also move around well and will need to be as the Chiefs are fourth in the NFL in sacks (43) and eighth in pressure percentage (23,7 percent). Smith won't have Tyler Lockett to help either. DK Metcalf will need to be exceedingly good and find ways to get open on his own without having Lockett. Maybe Noah Fant will have his best game of 2022?"

The Seattle Seahawks take on the Kansas City Chiefs, the 53rd meeting between the two teams, for Week 16 of the 2022 season. Take a look back at some of their previous matchups.
