Seahawks’ sack master Frank Clark continues his hot streak against the Chargers

The Chargers are coming off of a competitive battle between the Seahawks that ultimately ended up going in Los Angeles' favor by the score of 25-17. At times, he showed the same brilliance as a week ago against Detroit when he posted the first ideal passer rating in team history.

Seattle did not stop the run, giving up 7.3 yards per carry to the Chargers and letting Melvin Gordon run for 113 yards and a touchdown. "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". The Chargers averaged 10 yards per play in the first half and scored touchdowns on three of their five possessions, the last one taking just 55 seconds to find the end zone on a 30-yard catch-and-run by Mike Williams.

Despite those issues on the defensive side, it comes back to the play of the quarterback as usual.

From there is where Wilson and the Seahawks struggled.

Unfortunately for the Chargers, Caleb Sturgis missed the extra point, so at that point it was 7-6. Seattle traditionally plays with a single high safety to keep a lid on the defense at all times and while they have been incredibly successful in preventing explosive plays in the passing game, LA's size and speed at the position gives them an advantage that can beat Seattle's scheme. We've got a lot to prove. "That's not the way we've been playing", Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.

The Seahawks and Chargers kick off at 1:05 p.m. "It was a flawless job of getting the ball off them with three timeouts". His passer rating of 105 was still stellar and, most importantly, his control of the ball ensured that his team won, but it was a shakier start than usual.

NOTES: Carroll said G D.J. Fluker (calf) appeared to be OK.

"It was really close".

"We can't allow the big plays, all of the explosive plays", Clark said.
