The Chargers' Caleb Sturgis missed two extra points and a field goal in the team's 25-17 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. With these back-to-back game-saving efforts, the confidence in the defense is growing. "I don't want to speak for Melvin, but if he's feeling well I know he wants to play".

Gordon is officially questionable on the injury report.

Chris Carson started off well, but he left the game midway through the second quarter with an aggravated hip injury.

The Seattle Seahawks figured out just how easy it is to get off track. And the final blow came after a Desmond King 42-yard pick-6 with 6:44 to play that would have put the Chargers up by 16.

After Earl Thomas was lost for the season and every single member of the Legion of Boom was gone, everyone expected Seattle's once historic defense to fall all the way off the edge but these young bucks are playing with their hair on fire. Rivers completed just 50% of his passes for 228 yards, but he didn't turn the ball over and threw a pair of touchdowns along the way. The loss dropped Seattle back to even at 4-4. The run defense was bad too as the Chargers averaged 7.3 yards per carry. Seattle are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it the size of the fight that determines this one. While that ball is floating in the air, be ready to see some major fighting to get position back down on the ground and hopefully the officials will let them play. Philip Rivers was the offensive standout of the match for the Chargers, as he passed for 306 yards and 2 touchdowns. While Seattle's secondary is touted and hungry, Seattle's ability to rush the passer will prove the deciding factor. Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start.
