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

The Chargers (6-2) prevailed to extend their winning streak to five, defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 25-17, after the Seahawks' last-second touchdown attempt failed.

Russell Wilson missed a wide-open Jaron Brown for a potential touchdown.

"We've found ourselves in most of the games we didn't win right there at the end, so close to getting it done", Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. But so far this season, when Seattle's ground game grinds to a halt, Wilson stops being as decisive and starts taking more sacks. That makes it eight straight good games in a row from Rivers. 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.

Gordon averaged 7.1 yards per carry and ran through huge holes in the second half.

Moore, meanwhile, ran down and in across the back of the end zone, covered first by Michael Davis who then passed him off in coverage to safety Derwin James. Carson was deemed questionable heading into the Chargers game due to a hip issue, but was ultimately given the green light to play moments before the contest.

McDougald didn't play in the second half with a knee injury that Carroll said was "pretty sore" on Monday.

Seattle played a lengthy tribute video honoring owner Paul Allen who died on October 15 due to complications from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Seattle also had logos added to the field reading "PGA" similar to the patches the team had added to its uniforms. "He affected all of us. his wisdom and his charity and his love for this area".

The Chargers next face the Raiders on Sunday.

The Los Angeles Chargers will welcome back Melvin Gordon on Sunday after the star running back missed the team's previous game with a hamstring injury. If Sturgis even hit the one field goal attempt or one of his extra point tries, the game would've been out of reach and the Seahawks final drive wouldn't have mattered.
