Chargers Answer Back With Rivers Passing TD and Gordon Rushing TD

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is undefeated at home against AFC teams

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is undefeated at home against AFC teams

Rivers completed just 50% of his passes for 228 yards, but he didn't turn the ball over and threw a pair of touchdowns along the way. Fluker didn't play late in the game due to the injury and was replaced by C Joey Hunt playing out of position. In other moments, Wilson looked uncertain - especially with Seattle's run game working only in spurts because of a hip injury to starter Chris Carson.

White was selected by the Chargers in the fourth round in last April's draft and played in the first three games.

Gordon is officially questionable on the injury report.


The 25-17 loss to the Chargers revealed how quickly the Seahawks can lose the style of play that led them to win four of the previous five games. Seattle had just 53 yards rushing in the second and third quarters combined after running for 45 yards on the opening drive of the game.

With their most recent loss the Seahawks are now 4-4 and are back at a.500 winning percentage. His production has been off the charts and coming off the first flawless quarterback rating of his career, Wilson looks to continue to benefit off of a dominant running game in front of his home crowd. Opposing Russell is the gunslinger in the west, Philip Rivers, who rolls into Seattle ranked third in yards per attempt and sixth in completion percentage, meaning he can get the ball down field often and effectively.

Cornerback Desmond King was the game-changer for Los Angeles by reading and stepping in front of Wilson's pass intended for wide receiver David Moore for an interception and taking it back to the house for 42-yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. While Seattle's secondary is touted and hungry, Seattle's ability to rush the passer will prove the deciding factor.


Yet for all those issues, Wilson was a slightly deflected pass away from leading a remarkable comeback and getting the Seattle Seahawks into overtime against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

In a contract year, the 6-foot-3, 265-pound defensive end has racked up 7.5 sacks in the Seahawks' eight games.
