Seahawks Film Room: Wilson's missed opportunities, sacks contributed to loss vs. Chargers

Yet for all those issues, Wilson was a slightly deflected pass away from leading a remarkable comeback and getting the Seattle Seahawks into overtime against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. "There's always going to be some growing time and we saw that the first two weeks of the season".

Wilson's day mirrored Seattle's as a whole.

But don't worry, Melvin Gordon is completely healthy and running WILD! You can't sit back and feel like we've got the whole world in our hands.


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.

In the Seahawks' convincing Week 8 victory over the Lions, Russell Wilson had a "perfect" game in which he averaged over 14 yards per attempt.

From there is where Wilson and the Seahawks struggled. Seattle traditionally plays with a single high safety to keep a lid on the defense at all times and while they have been incredibly successful in preventing explosive plays in the passing game, LA's size and speed at the position gives them an advantage that can beat Seattle's scheme.


"We were going to have to stop them anyway, " Carroll said. Though he's only found the end zone once so far, Allen remains the top target for Rivers and he's still on pace for over 1,100 yards, making him a tough matchup for Seahawks cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin and Tre Flowers. Guard D.J. Fluker injured a leg in the fourth quarter. Wilson scrambled for 16 yards to the Chargers 28 and, after a spike, Seattle had 30 seconds left. "It was a flawless job of getting the ball off them with three timeouts". Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start.

"It was really close. Let's wait and see what happens", Carroll said.
