With the ability to beat defenses over the top with each of these three receivers, all eyes will be on free safety Tedric Thompson, who will be making his fourth start since Earl Thomas was lost for the season. Melvin Gordon ran for 113 yards on just 16 carries, averaging 7.1 yards per rush.
Seattle still had a chance to force overtime against the Chargers until Russell Wilson's pass for David Moore at the back of the end zone was tipped slightly and fell incomplete on the final play. 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. While that ball is floating in the air, be ready to see some major fighting to get position back down on the ground and hopefully the officials will let them play.
Rivers became the fourth quarterback in league history to start 200 straight games, joining Brett Favre, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning. Seattle's intended style worked to perfection on the opening drive when Wilson used up more than half of the first quarter and capped the 13-play drive with a 10-yard TD pass to Brown. "We didn't show up and show out at the end of the day and that's what you've got to do in this league". "We had a chance but it didn't work", Wilson said.
Kicker Sebastian Janikowski #11 kicks a field goal in the first half against the Los Angeles Rams at CenturyLink Field on October 7, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. "The coaches did a nice job adjusting". "We're a young team, we're climbing".
The Seahawks have reached the midway point of a season that started with a two-week dip into the nether regions of the National Football League standings, rebounded with four wins in the span of five games, and now has been cast into doubt following a loss to the Chargers.
"I believe just that persistent effort and want to get better, and to keep on improving is the difference-maker, and what we're going to do for the rest of the season", Clark said.
