Rivers threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyrell Williams and 30 yards to Mike Williams, and let the Chargers defense stymie Wilson until the final minutes.
The move comes less than 24 hours after Sturgis received death glares from Rivers throughout a game in which the kicker missed two extra points and a field goal. Seattle's intended style worked to perfection on the opening drive when Wilson used up more than half of the first quarter and capped the 13-play drive with a 10-yard TD pass to Brown. The loss dropped Seattle back to even at 4-4. His passer rating of 105 was still stellar and, most importantly, his control of the ball ensured that his team won, but it was a shakier start than usual. "If our defense keeps playing like that, we'll be OK". 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. Last Sunday versus the Chargers, things couldn't have been more different as Wilson put together one of his worst games of the season. It was his first game back since a strained quad sidelined him in Week 5. 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. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench.
