On the final play of the game at the one-yard line, Wilson's final attempt for Moore in the back of the end zone was tipped by safety Jahleel Addae and fell incomplete to cap off the game.
The way Pete Carroll explained it, the Seahawks really didn't have a hard decision to make on what to do next after they scored late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's defeat to cut the Chargers' lead to 25-17 with 1:50 left.
After Earl Thomas was lost for the season and every single member of the Legion of Boom was gone, everyone expected Seattle's once historic defense to fall all the way off the edge but these young bucks are playing with their hair on fire. Over the last four games, the Chargers have given up 10, 14, 19 and 17 points. He averaged just over six yards per attempt and threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown. The loss dropped Seattle back to even at 4-4. But so far this season, when Seattle's ground game grinds to a halt, Wilson stops being as decisive and starts taking more sacks. They sit at 4-4, facing a challenging three-game stretch that starts this week with the Los Angeles Rams. McDougald will likely be a very limited participant in practice this week, but Carroll said he was pleased with the performance of backup Delano Hill stepping in for McDougald, who has been one of Seattle's top defensive players this season. His production has been off the charts and coming off the first ideal quarterback rating of his career, Wilson looks to continue to benefit off of a dominant running game in front of his home crowd. The Seahawks finished with 154 yards rushing, but starter Chris Carson didn't play the final 2 ½ quarters due to a lingering hip injury. While Seattle's secondary is touted and hungry, Seattle's ability to rush the passer will prove the deciding factor.More news: Ted Cruz, the supreme politician with eyes on the White House
Eight plays went for more than 20, including a game-long 54-yard pass Keenan Allen hauled in early in the second quarter.
ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing a source, reported that Gordon will face the Seattle Seahawks after the injury had kept him out of the team's Week 7 win against the Tennessee Titans in London. If, the now fully healthy, Frank Clark and company can get pressure on Rivers and keep him from planting his foot in the ground and letting the ball rip then Seattle will be walking away with a win.
