While he completed 66.7% of his throws, he only averaged 9.0 yards per completion. Melvin Gordon has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the past two weeks since the team played in London and then entered their bye in hopes of getting healthy but that has proven not to be the case.
Chris Carson started off well, but he left the game midway through the second quarter with an aggravated hip injury. Seattle had just 53 yards rushing in the second and third quarters combined after running for 45 yards on the opening drive of the game. The loss dropped Seattle back to even at 4-4.More news: Amazon plans to split HQ2 evenly between two cities
Sturgis, 29, was released after he missed two extra points and a field goal during the Chargers' hard-fought 25-17 victory in Seattle on Sunday. Wilson was sacked three times and while he was 15 of 20 passing for 148 yards during that stretch, many of those completions came with Seattle facing long down-and-distance situations. Of the Chargers' 50 offensive plays during the game, 16 of them - including all three touchdowns - chewed up more than 10 yards. 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. 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. While Seattle's secondary is touted and hungry, Seattle's ability to rush the passer will prove the deciding factor. The Chargers (5-2) have won four straight going into Sunday's game at Seattle (4-3). 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.
