Chargers beat Seattle Seahawks

The Los Angeles Chargers beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, with a most impressive & complete team win. Philip Rivers was a surgeon on the field, cutting & slicing up the Seattle defense with relatively easy chunk plays. But this was not Rivers best game of the season, as the Seahawks kept Rivers completion percentage to a season low, 50%. Rivers only had 13 completions, but had 228 pass yards, with a massive 17.5 yards average per completion and two touchdowns.
Running back Melvin Gordon was also fantastic & extremely efficient, rushing 16 times with 113 yards (7.1 rush yards per attempt), including a 10 yard reception and one rushing touchdown.
Keenan Allen also had 6 receptions for 124 yards and two rushes for 14 yards, but he also had two very important 3rd down drops (that were perfectly thrown passes by Rivers).
Seattle dominated the time of possession of the game, and had a decent late game comeback, but with 6:45 in the 4th quarter, Russell Wilson threw a pick-six to nickle-corner Desmond King, which looked like the knockout blow. The Seahawks still scrapped back with an impressive comeback attempt, but with the final play of the game, Chargers Safety Jaleel Addai tipped a potential TD completion, causing the final play to be a game ending incompletion. Charger 25 / Seahawks 17
**The most notable errors of the game were caused by Los Angeles kicker Caleb Sturgis, who missed two extra points and missed a 42 yard field goal, leaving 5 point on the field. Early in the first quarter, the Chargers also attempted a two point conversion, which also failed.
