KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Chiefs counterpart Alex Smith struggled behind their unsettled offensive lines in Kansas City’s 14-13 preseason victory over Seattle on Friday night.
Wilson was 9 of 15 for 78 yards, though most of those completions came on his final drive, when tight end Jimmy Graham finally got involved in the game. Otherwise, Wilson spent his half of work running away from Chiefs pass rushers Justin Houston and Dee Ford.
At least he wasn’t throwing to the wrong team.
Smith was pressured so much in the first half that he began rushing his throws, and one of them was picked off by Bobby Wagner. The Seattle linebacker returned it untouched 25 yards for a touchdown that gave the Seahawks a 10-7 halftime lead.
Smith finished 11 of 18 for 81 yards with a touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin.
