The Seahawks and the Chargers clash in a battle of would be contenders if not for the inhuman performances from the Rams and Chiefs.

Unfortunately for the Chargers, Caleb Sturgis missed the extra point, so at that point it was 7-6.

The running back depth of both teams may be tested this game with the lead backs of both teams going into Sunday's game listed as questionable.

Badgley kicked in two games when Sturgis could not play due to a quadriceps injury. In other moments, Wilson looked uncertain - especially with Seattle's run game working only in spurts because of a hip injury to starter Chris Carson.

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. Most costly, he misread coverage and threw a pass that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. The success made it back-to-back wins for Seattle. With the ability to beat defenses over the top with each of these three receivers, all eyes will be on free safety Tedric Thompson, who will be making his fourth start since Earl Thomas was lost for the season. It should inspire you to want to do more, to want to make more plays.

After a slow start, Russell Wilson is lighting up defenses like a Christmas tree, and no it is not too early to start celebrating.

Clark's sack - he's now recorded at least one in each of the past three games - culminated in a 3-yard loss to set up a third-and-long. His production has been off the charts and coming off the first flawless quarterback rating of his career, Wilson looks to continue to benefit off of a dominant running game in front of his home crowd.

Rivers threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns on 13 of 26 attempts. While Seattle's secondary is touted and hungry, Seattle's ability to rush the passer will prove the deciding factor. Hard to call that a good game, especially when you consider that Seattle allowed 19 points in the first half, most of any game this season. They will square off against Seattle at 5:05 p.m. on Sunday.

Sturgis missed the PAT in the first quarter that would have tied the game, 7-7.
