Carroll's role in advancing Seattle's rebuild to the point of being in the playoffs started in the offseason.
Griffin said keeping Hill from going insane was "something we were focused on". The Seahawks could get D.J. Fluker and K.J. Wright back for the game. "At this time of year, whatever it takes to win, that's what you've got to do", Tom Brady said.
"We do have our own story", Carroll said before later acknowledging, "That's what it felt like in the past".
Wilson (18-of-29 for 271 yards, no turnovers) has had more prolific games. He has been the main man for Kansas City's rushing attack since the release of Kareem Hunt and ran for 103 yards on 13 carries on the night. "We were going to keep the plan together, and do what we've been doing, and count on the guys to pull it off, and they did a magnificent job".
Playing the rookies, though, says a lot about Chiefs' desperation to fix their woeful defense.
Penny has 81 carries for 413 yards and two touchdowns in his first National Football League season while also catching nine passes for 75 yards, but he was forced to miss the game against the Niners due to the injury.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, he was 8-of-11 for 197 yards and a touchdown on passes 15-plus yards downfield.
"The Chiefs have gone just 1-4-1 against the spread since starting the season 7-0 in that department", Roberts said, telling readers to back the Chargers without hesitation. "Luckily we are still in the position where we will have the opportunity to go out there and win it next week".
But they also kept the Chiefs from turning in the kind of big plays that have been their trademark - Kansas City's longest gain was 32 yards and Tyreek Hill (who came into the game with 1,304 yards, fifth move in the NFL) had just four receptions on nine targets for 74 yards. Mahomes was sacked only once but was hit 11 times.
"I played some young guys tonight that I wanted to just get a look at, that I thought could help us a bit", coach Andy Reid said. Carson became the first Seahawks running back to do so since Marshawn Lynch did it in 2014. The Seahawks want to dominate time of possession and be the more physical team and the Chiefs' defense is perhaps the least physical unit I've ever seen in my life.
Kansas City running back Darrel Williams suffered a hamstring injury in the first half and did not return.
That put the Seahawks up 24-17 with 45 seconds left in the third quarter, kicking off some furious activity the rest of the way.
The Chiefs can still clinch the AFC West with a win next week against the Oakland Raiders. Dallas and Chicago are potential destinations and LA is a distant possibility all depending on what the Rams do in their regular season finale against Fightin' Richard Sherman and the 49ers.
