Chiefs Emerge as Team With Trade Interest in Earl Thomas

But containing running back Ezekiel Elliott is easier said than done, and anytime he did manage to elude defenders, Thomas was there to stop him in his tracks. That's just 1.4 yards a target. The biggest issue remains their passing game as they once again had a hard time getting things going in this regard.

Elliott led the team in targets with 8, but just 3 receptions for 11 yards. He chased down Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett following a game a year ago, telling the head coach "come get me", and engaged in an offseason holdout this past summer.


Elliott finished with 127 yards on 16 carries, but he was flagged for an illegal touch of a forward pass that negated what would have been a 31-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, and he fumbled in the fourth quarter with Dallas attempting a comeback. "I'm just speaking on our go-to concepts or go-to beaters or whatever it may be that we didn't get to".

"When you've got that ball in your hand, that's the team in our hand", Elliott said. "But I don't want that to be taken the wrong way - I know I'll get fined". It ended with Thomas telling reporters that he doesn't plan to practice for the Seahawks if he doesn't feel like it. Heath departed with a left ankle injury earlier in the drive and Wilson found Lockett streaking up the sideline. The 6-foot-5, 342-pound guard paved the way for Seattle's first rushing touchdown since October 2017 and helped Chris Carson rush for 102 yards - the first Seahawk to eclipse 100 yards since 2016.
