Rivers, Gordon leads Chargers past Seahawks 25-17

Rivers, Gordon leads Chargers past Seahawks 25-17”

He averaged just over six yards per attempt and threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown.

After successfully resetting its roster and figuring out a style and method for winning in the first half of the season, Seattle took a major step backward in a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Carson was deemed questionable heading into the Chargers game due to a hip issue, but was ultimately given the green light to play moments before the contest. Seattle got the ball back with 1:24 left at its own 22 and after two completions and a roughing the passer penalty on Melvin Ingram, the Seahawks were at the Chargers 44 with 50 seconds left. This play design is great versus Cover 3 defenses with three deep defenders, and since the Chargers primarily play. Wilson scrambled for 16 yards to the Chargers 28 and, after a spike, Seattle had 30 seconds left. The success made it back-to-back wins for Seattle. Defensively, the Seahawks allowed the Chargers to average 10 yards per play in the first half, and rush for 7.3 yards per carry for the game. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench.

Seattle also had logos added to the field reading "PGA" similar to the patches the team had added to its uniforms. "We had a chance but it didn't work", Wilson said.

The Los Angeles Chargers will welcome back Melvin Gordon on Sunday after the star running back missed the team's previous game with a hamstring injury.

The Chargers victory on Sunday left them at 6-2 for the season in the AFC West division, trailing the pace-setting Kansas City Chiefs, who are 8-1 for the year. If Sturgis even hit the one field goal attempt or one of his extra point tries, the game would've been out of reach and the Seahawks final drive wouldn't have mattered.
