Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware lead Chiefs to strong first half showing against Seahawks

AP

The Kansas City Chiefs had one of the strongest rushing games in the league last season and appear to have picked up right where they left off.

Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware combined for 64 yards on nine carries with Ware’s 1-yard touchdown run carrying the Chiefs to a 13-3 halftime lead over the Seattle Seahawks in their preseason opener.

Knile Davis also added 14 yards on two carries as Kansas City is averaging over six yards a carry.

Alex Smith, Nick Foles and Tyler Bray all received time at quarterback in the first half and combined to go 10-for-21 for 121 yards.

Christine Michael was the strongest performer for Seattle in the first half. The former 2013 second-round pick rushed for 44 yards on seven carries for Seattle.

Smith and Russell Wilson each received just one series of work before deferring to the backup quarterbacks the rest of the way.

  1. Really good game to get something of the young guys some good experience. I think the chiefs are playing well on offense so far seem to have a great stable of rbs. Personally I’m excited for the next few games as the hawks will have some guys who have minor dings out their. Excited for Rawls Jimmy Kam and Bennett.. Oline is holding up but but not great as expected.. Hopeful both teams come out injury free.

  2. What an odd way to talk about the running game–that West and Ware combined for 64 yards–since Michael of the Seahawks was the leading rusher for the game. Weird.

    It seams as though the sea chickens are pretty average when they can’t use the Roids to help out!!!

    That’s hilarious. The Hawks haven’t had an Adderall/PED suspension in over 3 years. And no Hawk player has EVER been suspended for Roids…there were only 5 suspensions for Adderall. Besides, Adderall is no longer considered a PED by the NFL…was downgraded to Substance Abuse Policy 2 years ago. Do some research and see what teams the 140 players were on that were suspended for PED’s in the last few years. HINT: they weren’t on the Seahawks.

  4. For one thing, Mebane will turn 32 in the postseason…in his prime, he was making 60 tackles per year. The last 2 seasons, that dropped to just over 20 tackles. He was also no longer able to make any impact on the pocket. Long time Seahawk favorite, but unfortunately, every career declines at some point.
