In their first game at home for nearly a month...the seattle seahawks' were almost looking themselves in the mirror facing the los angeles chargers...both teams have figured it out as of late...both finding countless weapons on offense ....the chargers on a four game winning streakthe first game in century link since the passing of late owner paul allen...fans remember one of the greatest icons in seattle...----a few runs by chris carson had the hawks knocking on their first drive...russell wilson goes 10 yards to jahron brown...not an easy catch to make...hawks up 7 ----but melvin gordon's 34 yard td run puts l.a.
On top and phillip rivers...finds mike williams on the sideline...tip-toe spin move...stays on his feet...stays in bounds and the hawks are down 9 at halftime ----with no chris carson for the second half..sidelined with a hip injury....---- wilson...trying to captain a comeback...looking for david moore but desmond king smells it from a mile away...and he takes it 42 yards the other way...chargers with their largest lead of the game----2 minute drill time....wilson laces this in between defenders to nick vannet!
It's a 6 yard score..and a one possession game!----seattle gets a few penalties in their favor in their final drive...but commit a false start...so 6 yards away wilson....finds david moore does not come down with the seahawks fall 8 points short...certainly not russell wilson's best day...the pick six and sacked four tiems for 33 yards...whether they were his not...pete carroll recognizing they still had a chance pete carroll: "all in all, we had a chance.
You know we were right there.
A fantastic job by the offense at the end of the game, get down the field twice, put us in a chance to tie the game and go into overtime.
Give them some credit, we need to clean it up, we gave them too much."
The seahawks don't lose ground in the nfc west...the undefeated rams no longer...former eagle cooper kupp did return from injury...and ripped off a 41 yard touchdown run butdrew brees threw four touchdwon passes tonight including a 72 yard pass to michael.
