Huard’s Chalk Talk: Seahawks will need Kam Chancellor at his best against Carolina

Jan 12, 2016, 4:46 PM | Updated: Jan 13, 2016, 7:39 am

The upshot of this week’s “Chalk Talk” is that the Seahawks will need strong safety Kam Chancellor to be at this best Sunday against the Panthers and tight end Greg Olsen, who’s the focal point of Carolina’s passing game.

In the video above, Brock Huard breaks down the fourth-quarter play from Seattle’s win over Minnesota on which Chancellor was flagged for pass interference against tight end Kyle Rudolph. He says the Seahawks will have to stop that play Sunday against Carolina, noting how Minnesota’s formation was the same one out of which Olsen caught the game-winning touchdown when the Panthers beat Seattle in Week 6.

Note: You can watch the Minnesota play at the 5:43 mark of his highlight package. Here’s another look at Olsen’s touchdown.
