Houshmandzadeh Appears To Be Hasselbeck's Go To Guy

houshmanzadeh against chiefsMatt Hasselbeck threw two touchdowns for Seattle, but Kansas City endured a scare as quarterback Matt Cassel exited on the game’s opening series with a leg injury in the Seahawks’ 14-10 preseason win.

On the third play of the game, Cassel, who signed a lucrative contract after being acquired in an offseason trade with New England, was sacked by defensive tackle Brandon Mebane and walked off the field unassisted favoring his left leg. He was taken in for x-rays, which came back negative.

Cassel was replaced by Tyler Thigpen, who completed 8-of-15 passes for 56 yards. Matt Gutierrez was 10-of-13 for 113 yards and two interceptions.

Larry Johnson rushed for 36 yards on eight carries, while Ashley Lelie accumulated 52 yards on four receptions.

Hasselbeck’s first pass attempt was picked off by Brandon Flowers, who rumbled 28 yards to the end zone. The veteran quarterback finished 19-of-25 for 216 yards, while backup Seneca Wallace threw for 84 yards on 8-of-11 passing.

Seattle tied the game late in the second quarter when T.J. Houshmandzadeh hauled in an eight-yard TD pass from Hasselbeck. John Carlson and Hasselbeck hooked up for a 28-yard score in the third quarter.

Kansas City’s Ryan Succop kicked a 35-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to account for the final margin.
