KANSAS CITY, MO., NOV. 11 -- Paul Skansi caught Dave Krieg's 25-yard touchdown pass as time expired today and Norm Johnson kicked the extra point to give the Seattle Seahawks a 17-16 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kansas City linebacker Derrick Thomas, who set an NFL record with seven sacks, appeared to have Krieg trapped on the last play. But he wriggled free and passed toward Skansi, who was surrounded by defenders but jumped high and pulled down the pass in the middle of the end zone.

Johnson's extra point gave the Seahawks (4-5) their first victory in Kansas City since 1980. The Chiefs had won all four home games this season.

After forcing the Chiefs to punt, the Seahawks went 66 yards in four plays, with Krieg hitting Tommy Kane for 25 yards to set up the tying pass.

Nick Lowery kicked three field goals for the Chiefs (5-4) and Dan Saleaumua recovered a fumble in the end zone for the Chiefs' only touchdown in three weeks.

Thomas, the AFC's defensive rookie of the year last season, broke the NFL sack record of six set by the 49ers' Fred Dean against the Saints in 1983. Lowery, who kicked three field goals the week before in a 9-7 squeaker over the Raiders, succeeded from 25, 30 and 24 yards.

Kreig passed to Jeff Chadwick for a 54-yard touchdown that put the Seahawks on top 10-6 with 12:33 left in the third quarter.
