Chargers open up as underdogs against Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks opened their game against the Los Angeles Chargers with a touchdown drive. Another victory for the surging Chargers, holding off Wilson's late rally for a 25-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. "He had a really good week of practice with the onus on him that he may be starting in the game".

Badgley is the team's sixth placekicker since the start of last season. This wasn't like his 2010 performance in Seattle when Rivers threw for 455 yards, but he made key throws at important times, especially in the first half. Running back Melvin Gordon added 113 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

The best thing I have to say is, the game only ended up being a one-score difference and even came down to the last play of the game, even though it seemed like the Chargers dominated. It was his first game back since a strained quad sidelined him in Week 5. "I thought it was dominating, outside the points we missed, but pretty great".

Carson had been listed as questionable on the injury report with a groin problem, but wasn't on the inactive list the Seahawks released before the game. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench.

But even the policy debates have played out as much as cultural identity battles as they have nuanced debates over policy details. The contest has turned bitter as Abrams and Kemp traded charges of shenanigans.

NOTES: Carroll said G D.J. Fluker (calf) appeared to be OK. They looked like a legitimate playoff team and the Seahawks didn't, even though the game was so close. "Let's wait and see what happens", Carroll said.

Sturgis is the first kicker with missed a PAT and field goal in three consecutive games since 1979.
