Chargers win fifth straight after dispatching Seahawks

Adjust Comment Print

Los Angeles piled up 249 of its 375 yards of offense in the first half, and moved the ball nearly effortlessly.

The Los Angeles Chargers axed kicker on Monday following his wayward performance in a victory over the Seattle Seahawks at the weekend. I feel like, us as a group, we just have to do better. The Chargers defense stepped up as well to lay out the quarterback four times. Frankly, neither of the Seahawks units rose to the challenge either, until the final minutes that is. Last Sunday versus the Chargers, things couldn't have been more different as Wilson put together one of his worst games of the season. With just two years starting experience between Thompson, Flowers, Griffin, and McDougald going into this season, Seattle is really flexing their ability to develop defensive backs, but their skills will be tested more than ever by a freakish receiving core for LA. This loss stings coming after a week when the Seahawks asserted themselves as serious postseason contenders, they were decimated by the Chargers. Let's dive into the top stories to keep an eye on as the Chargers and Seahawks try and keep their momentum going. After all, if the Seahawks aren't opening holes in the ground game it stands to reason they might be giving up overwhelming pass pressure as well.

Kicking was crucial down the stretch and it revealed that both teams had special teams deficiencies. He missed a 42-yard field goal wide left in the third quarter with the Chargers leading, 19-10. Fluker didn't play late in the game due to the injury and was replaced by C Joey Hunt playing out of position.

Ugh, but unfortunately the Chargers missed the two-point conversion, so it's a disgusting score of 12-7.

Sturgis was 9 of 15 this season on extra points and 9 of 13 on field goals.
