|the most important coaches say,The Chiefs visit the Seattle Seahawks in the third preseason game, because starters play longer. The game, but he will miss the game after the birth of his third son., at CenturyLink Field, kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday and will be televised nationally on CBS (KCTV Channel 5 in Kansas City). It’s the first game on the network in the preseason and was to be the broadcasting debut of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo
Andy Reid said the starters are expected to play the first three quarters but he’s pulled Alex Smith earlier than expected in the first two preseason games. Could Patrick Mahomes get more than one series with the starters? The starting offense scored a touchdown on its only possession against the 49ers in the opener, and scored two touchdowns and a field goal in three possessions last week at Cincinnati. But this will be the most difficult test, going against a team that has allowed the fewest points and yards in the NFL over the past three seasons.
Eric Berry and the secondary
He’s missed the first two games recovering from a heel injury sustained in training camp, but Berry has been practicing this week and is expected to participate (as are defensive linemen Chris Jones and Roy Miller). Phillip Gaines started at right cornerback against the Bengals. The Chiefs wanted to see him work against A.J. Green. Reid said he liked how Gaines played after battling injuries much of his career. “I thought it was great work for him,” Reid said. “He came out feeling pretty good physically and he kept battling which was beautiful to watch.”
The in crowd at inside linebacker
but there’s a crowd at the position with the likes of Justin March-Lillard,Ramik Wilson has started the two games next to Derrick Johnson, Kevin Pierre-Louis,” defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said., Josh Mauge and Ukeme Eligwe. “Competition is always going to help you,Womens Nick Martin Jersey, and you’re going to need layers throughout the course of the year
The line grew by one healthier body this week when Parker Ehinger came off the physically unable to perform list. Ehinger started four games last season and was making progress before he tore knee ligaments. Zach Fulton took his spot at left guard, and in training camp Bryan Witzmann replaced Fulton. If nothing else,Authentic Tyler Ervin Jersey, the Chiefs have developed depth there and Fulton is probably the team’s most versatile lineman.
and after leading the NFL in percentage of passes dropped last season,MVP of the preseason? It could be the tight end who owns 27 receptions and two touchdowns in his three-year career. Harris caught a scoring pass from Smith and Mahomes last weekend,Authentic Kevin Johnson Jersey, has done a much better job concentrating on receptions. “He’s had a good camp,” Reid said. “He’s worked a ton on catching the football in tight areas. I’m looking forward to how he plays this season,Womens Kevin Johnson Jersey, and he has come a long way.”
Bobby Wagner wants first-team defense to step it up on Friday
but now middle linebacker Bobby Wagner wants them to go from good to great on Friday.,The Seattle Seahawks went from bad to good from preseason week one to week two
The first team defense, through two games, has been fine but not necessarily their normal spectacular self.
they gave up a touchdown on their only drive while letting Rivers hit five of his six passes and convert three first downs,Against San Diego Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers in week one, including a third-and-goal. Last week, the Vikings only converted a single third down., in just under a half of work, they held the Minnesota Vikings first-team offense to three points and forced two punts. In that time
Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford went 7-11 for 95 yards.
It was clear improvement but Wagner wants even more against the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday.
that the fans are used to seeing,Womens Tyler Ervin Jersey“I just want to make sure we come out there this Friday and we put on that dominant performance that we are used to seeing,” he told the News Tribune's Gregg Bell. “We want the first defense to go out there and get a turnover, get some big stops.
“So it will definitely come in time.”
for all of its improvements between preseason week one and two,The Seahawks first-team defense, has yet to force a turnover or tally a sack. Of course, they've only played a total of two quarters of work in two games but still with two top-15 sack leaders from 2016 in Frank Clark and Cliff Avril,Authentic Nick Martin Jersey, you'd think one sack would have occurred through osmosis by now.
The turnovers are less concerning. Actually for Wagner, as long as it's preseason,Authentic Braxton Miller Jersey, it's all not much of a concern to him. He knows what his defense can do. They likely have three quarters to do it on Friday.
I think we just want to execute,“To me,Womens Braxton Miller Jersey,” Wagner said to Bell. “We want to fly around. We want to have fun. We want to execute the defense. We want to get off the field, do well on third downs.
you’re not going to tell me what I did in the preseason.”,,Authentic Benardrick McKinney Jersey,“But nobody cares about preseason. Ten years from now
The Seahawks defense is a well-oiled machine just trying to make it to week one against the Green Bay Packers healthy and in tune. But, since they'll roll a football out there on Friday,Womens Benardrick McKinney Jersey, they might as well get a tune up against an equally efficient Chiefs offense.
that's all that matters.,It may not mean anything in tens years but it certainly means something to the defense now. And at this point
