The Chargers released the veteran kicker after a lackluster performance through the first half of the season and signed Michael Badgley to the active roster, the team announced Monday. "As far as expectations, our expectations are higher and that's why we're disappointed that we're not in better shape than we are right now". Melvin Gordon ran for 113 yards on just 16 carries, averaging 7.1 yards per rush. We can't allow Phillip to have that much time to throw the ball. 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. While Wilson almost pulled it off, the Seahawks fell to 5-6 at home over the past two seasons and have lost the last five games when Wilson has attempted 30 or more passes dating to last season.
Gordon is officially questionable on the injury report. Seattle fans will recall that Carson missed the Seahawk's week four match up against the Arizona Cardinals with a hip injury so if he misses this game there may be deeper implications that he may need surgery to address the issue. This play design is great versus Cover 3 defenses with three deep defenders, and since the Chargers primarily play. He got all the first-team reps and (was) really focused and was really in on it, and he played the game exactly like he practiced. Seattle played the second half without starting strong safety Bradley McDougald due to a knee injury.
Despite all that, Wilson almost pulled off another fourth-quarter rally.

"We love the spirit that he stood for", Carroll said.
