Seahawks at Patriots: 5 takeaways from Seattle unexpected win
By Keith Myers
4. Welcome back Kam Chancellor
Seattle’s All-Pro strong safety missed four games games with a groin injury. This was his first game back, and the rust was apparent early. Kam made two big mistakes on New England’s opening drive that lead to a New England touchdown.
After that, Kam settled in and made his presence felt in a big way for the Seahawks. He was a big part of stopping New England’s offense throughout he game.
Then, in the fourth quarter he really took over. Kam forced a fumble at midfield that Richard Sherman recovered and the Seahawks turned into a touchdown.
On New England’s next possession, that turned out to be their final possession, Chancellor was came up big again. He made the stop on the 1-foot line when Blount tried to jump over the line, and then was matched up one-on-one with Gronkowski on fourth and goal.
Kelcie McCray played extremely well during Chancellor’s absence, but tonight Kam showed why he’s the All-Pro.
