Seattle Seahawks sit at .500 after step back from winning formula

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.

Desmond King provided the deciding points for Los Angeles (6-2) by stepping in front of Wilson's pass for Moore and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown with 6:44 remaining to give the Chargers a 25-10 lead. Over the last four games, the Chargers have given up 10, 14, 19 and 17 points. 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.

With their most recent loss the Seahawks are now 4-4 and are back at a.500 winning percentage.

Sunday's Week 9 contest was not a good game for the Seattle Seahawks. At times, he showed the same brilliance as a week ago against Detroit when he posted the first ideal passer rating in team history. The last player to do that was the Raiders' Jim Breech.

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. In other moments, Wilson looked uncertain - especially with Seattle's run game working only in spurts because of a hip injury to starter Chris Carson. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench. Guard D.J. Fluker injured a leg in the fourth quarter.

Seattle might well have run it from the 1 - coach Pete Carroll wouldn't say for certain afterward what the Seahawks would have done. If I'm being honest, the Chargers were the real story on Sunday. 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.
