Chargers 30, Seahawks 21: First impressions

Bob Condotta: The Seahawks just could never keep San Diego’s offense off the field. Maybe it was the heat, or maybe the Chargers were simply the more desperate team. But this was a rare time an opposing offense seemed to be more aggressive than Seattle’s defense.

Jayson Jenks: The Seahawks lost this game because of costly mistakes: Bruce Irvin’s late hit, J.R. Sweezy’s false start in the fourth quarter, Percy Harvin’s fumbled kickoff. Those mistakes were far too common for the Seahawks to overcome a stellar day from San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers.

Larry Stone: The Seahawks were out of sorts all day. Russell Wilson was often under heavy pressure, and Phillip Rivers picked apart Seattle’s defense with a deft short passing game. If we had forgotten, or started to believe otherwise, this game was a pointed reminder: They’re human.
