More from Seattle Seahawks

Last Week


The Chargers were idle last week. Two weeks ago Philip Rivers threw for 306 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 20-19 L.A.C. home win over the Tennessee Titans.


In Detroit, the Seattle Seahawks won their fourth out of the last five games with a 28-14 win over the Lions. Seattle’s 21 second-quarter points were enough to win, especially since their defense held Detroit scoreless for over 37 minutes between the opening and closing quarters.

  • QB Russell Wilson – 14/17, 248 yards, 3 TDs, 0 Int, 2 rushes for 15 yards.
  • RB Chris Carson – 25 carries for 105 yards and 1 TD, 2 carries for 19 yards.
  • WR David Moore – 4 catches for 97 yards, 1 TD.
  • LB Bobby Wagner – 8 tackles, 1 pass defended.
  • DE Frank Clark – 1 sack, 1 tackle for loss, 1 QB hit.
  • P Michael Dickson – 4 punts, 49.5-yard-average, 2 punts inside the 20.

This Week

It’s strength on strength this week. The L.A. Chargers gain the sixth most yards per game (402.7), while Seattle gives up the fifth fewest yards per game (327.3). There is no doubt L.A. signal-caller Philip Rivers can effectively throw the ball as he has 2008 yards and 17 touchdown passes in seven games this year.

L.A.C.’s mid-level defense may be their undoing this week. They don’t play the run very well and you can bet the Seahawks will be determined to take the ball right at them with Chris Carson. The key for Seattle is the same as it has been the past five games. Keep control of the ball and keep Rivers off the field. It’s a mission they can accomplish at home.
