Seahawks' Chancellor takes step backward in OT loss to Bengals

Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor made an immediate impact upon returning to the lineup after sitting out the first two games due to a contract holding.

Once Chancellor returned, the Seahawks won both games while turning in a pair of sparkling defensive efforts, albeit against a pair of struggling opponents. Seattle blanked the Chicago Bears in Week 3 and limited the Detroit Lions to just a field goal on offense in a 13-10 victory the following week.

However, both the defense and Chancellor wilted in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss at Cincinnati, a game in which Seattle coughed up a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter.

Pro Football Focus graded Chancellor as the league's worst safety on Sunday, per the Seattle Times. Chancellor was target 11 times - the most among the Legion of Boom secondary - and allowed two touchdown receptions among nine completions for a league-high 102 yards surrendered.
