What The Chiefs Are Saying About The Seahawks

Check out what the Kansas City Chiefs are saying about the Seahawks before the two teams meet in Week 16 in Seattle.


(On if he is impressed by just how well Patrick Mahomes has played) "Listen, he's done a nice job. He's worked extremely hard. He had a good mentor there with Alex (Smith) and he listened and learned. He loves playing the game. Those are all good qualities to have, very similar to the guy you have up there (with Russell Wilson). Same kind of attitude in that way."

(On Patrick Mahomes' ability to make ridiculous throws) "I've been lucky to have guys that could do that. I've been spoiled that way. Starting with (Brett) Favre and Donovan (McNabb), Michael Vick – all these guys could throw from crazy angles. Alex (Smith) came here and Alex was very mobile, could move around and throw it. I've been very fortunate that way."

(On the Seahawks defense) "Well, they're flying around. I think they're a really good defense and Ken (Norton Jr.) is back up there and Pete (Carroll) is obviously an expert at that defense. They're very sound and they know that defense like the back of their hand and they fly around."

(On dealing with defenses adapting to Patrick Mahomes' playing style) "I mean, it depends on if it's from pressure or whatever it's from that might cause him to move and throw, but normally if it's on time he does the right thing. He's got good eyes and good timing so that's important. If there's pressure though, he has that ability to move around and do what he has to do there. He's got a good feel for that."


(On what it means to play in Seattle) It's exciting, it's gonna be a great challenge and a hostile environment. We got to play there in the preseason last year, and you can see how crazy and loud it was, even in the preseason. With playoff implications, it's going to be rockin' pretty heavily. For us, it's going to be a great challenge and try to win a football game against a really good team.


(On KJ Wright and the Seahawks veterans) He's another veteran that lines up next to Mr. Wagner. Those two guys have been playing next to each other for a while now. He's a very unique backer, brings a lot of play time to the position, but it's the Seattle Seahawks. They play hard, they play fast, they play the Pete Carroll way. And on top of that, they've got Ken Norton Jr. back, as a defensive coordinator. These guys, they'll be looking forward to it. They'll be playing at home, they've got the 12s, it'll be a big game.

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.
