Hail to the Chiefs

The AFC West leading Chiefs came into Seattle and dominated the Seahawks on Sunday 42-24. Dwayne Bowe had three touchdown receptions and Jamaal Charles rushed for 173 yards. The loss bumped the Seahawks back into a tie with St.Louis for first place in the NFC West. From a photography perspective, it was a great game to shoot because there was decent light and the red Chiefs uniforms really popped with all of the dark blue throughout Qwest Field.
