The Seahawks suffered a few injuries during the outing, particularly to safety Bradley McDougald, running back Chris Carson and guard D.J. Fluker, requiring changes in personnel. Wilson was sacked three times and while he was 15 of 20 passing for 148 yards during that stretch, many of those completions came with Seattle facing long down-and-distance situations. Melvin Gordon has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the past two weeks since the team played in London and then entered their bye in hopes of getting healthy but that has proven not to be the case.
I don't want to undersell the defensive shortcomings of Sunday's game, but I don't want to exaggerate the flaws, either.
The Chargers's offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 19 points in the first half.
Gordon missed the Chargers' last game on October 21 in London against Tennessee due to a hamstring injury. This play design is great versus Cover 3 defenses with three deep defenders, and since the Chargers primarily play.
Schiff condemns Trump wildfire remarks as 'punitive' toward 'devastated' state
Wildfires continued to rage on both ends of the state, with gusty winds expected overnight which will challenge firefighters. The number of people killed in that fire alone, at least 23, made it the third-deadliest on record in the state.
‘EU should pay more for defence’
President Donald Trump attends a press conference at the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on November 7, 2018. But he also made clear that the USA was not disengaging, declaring "we want to help".
Timberwolves trade Jimmy Butler to 76ers
Butler and the Sixers "fully expect" to come to terms on a long-term contract this summer, Wojnarowski added . The Timberwolves and 76ers play twice this season: January 15 in Philadelphia and March 30 in Minnesota.
Wilson also missed on a couple of throws - he underthrew Jaron Brown in the third quarter on a play that might have resulted in a touchdown - and threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown by Desmond King II with 6:44 to play, and widened the Chargers' lead to 25-10. Irvin spent his first four seasons in Seattle and the Seahawks could use a boost in the pass rush. Brown said later it was a broken play and he just tried to make himself open once he saw Wilson scrambling.
The running back depth of both teams may be tested this game with the lead backs of both teams going into Sunday's game listed as questionable. That said, I am going to go ahead and be the bad sport and grade the refs with an F.
That wasn't the case in the first half. Sturgis would miss another later in the game, as well as a 42-yard field goal and might well have lost his job.
