The Chiefs cut the Seahawks lead to 14-10 on a 35-yard field goal by Ryan Succop, which capped an eight-play, 63-yard drive that started at the end of the third quarter and ended with 11:50 to play.
The big play on the drive was Matt Gutierrez’ 33-pass to Ashley Lelie, who got behind Seahawks cornerback Kevin Hobbs.
The Seahawks got another chance to put points on the board when cornerback Marquis Floyd intercepted a horribly thrown pass from QB Matt Gutierrez at the Kansas City 46 with 6½ minutes to play. But on consecutive plays, rookie tight end Cameron Morrah was called for a false start, guard Andre Ramsey was penalized for holding and wide receiver Ben Obomanu dropped a third-down pass from Mike Teel.
The Chiefs mounted one last drive to try and win the game, moving from their own 18 to the Seahawks 39. But defensive ends Derrick Walker and Nick Reed came up with back-to-back sacks and linebacker Will Herring intercepted a third-down pass.
