Seahawks Faces 25-17 Loss Against Chargers
Seattle Seahawks faced another disappointing loss after Sunday’s game at the CenturyLink Field against the Los Angeles Chargers with a 25-17 result. Although Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expected a good turnout with three key starters rallied by running back Chris Garson, linebacker K.J. Wright, and safety Bradley McDougald, the team fell short after the Chargers earned their best start of 6-2 since 2006.
Pinning hopes over quarterback Russell Wilson after bringing eight points to the team with only 1:50 minutes remaining, Seahawks managed to reach five plays before barging into the L.A. 30-yard line. Seahawks also managed to take the lead during the initial round of the game, with 7-0 achieved by Wilson after his 10-yard strike to wide receiver Jaron Brown.
But just as the Seahawks aimed for victory, it was the Chargers who claimed it with running back Melvin Gordon’s 34-yard rushing touchdown and wide receiver Keenan Allen’s 54-yard reception from quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers also made his 200th consecutive start with his 13-of-26 for 228 yards.
The Seahawks is set to reclaim their glory as the team looks forward to their next game with L.A. Rams on the 11th this month at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
