Chargers vs Seahawks Game Preview

The deadly at-home Seattle Seahawks got manhandled by the Broncos. The Seahawks did not score a touchdown, and they scored a field goal in the third quarter. Sean Mannion played mediocre, and Alex McGough had a rough night. McGough threw two interceptions.
Seattle’s running backs were better than the Chargers, but the highest rusher had 30 yards, Josh Jonshon. The receiver core also didn’t do anything worth note. Unlike the Chargers, the Seahawks’ defense did not play well.

Chargers vs Seahawks Prediction
Both of the team’s offenses have not been playing well this preseason. Either team has not had a twenty-point game. The Chargers’ defense has looked really good, only giving up 22 points total in their two games. Seattle’s defense has played much worse.
They have given up 50 points total in their two games. This will be the perfect chance for Seattle’s defense to get some experience with a bad offense. Expect a low-scoring game, and both teams have not shown they can move and score the ball consistently.
Both offenses really are not playing football, but the CHargers have been a little better. For example, Seattle has scored only ten points this preseason, but Los Angeles has scored 22 points. For that reason, The Chargers will win the game 16-7.
- Los Angeles will start no starters this preseason.
- No starter will start for Seattle for rest for the regular season.
- The game is set for kickoff at 7:10 PM PT and is on August 28.
Best Bet: Total Score – Under 35.5 (-115)
