The Line: Seattle Seahawks -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks will square off Friday night in a preseason game at CenturyLink Field.
The Chargers dominated the Dallas Cowboys in their first preseason game winning, 27-7. The Chargers scored 27 unanswered points and ran the ball 42 times for 152 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Phillip Rivers played very little, completing four of four passes for 61 yards, while Kellen Clemens completed five of his five pass attempts for 134 yards and a touchdown. Overall, the Chargers completed 14 of 16 pass attempts for 243 yards. Really one of the more complete offensive performances of the preseason, the Chargers will clicking on all cylinders. Defensively, the Chargers allowed only 274 yards and came away with three sacks. The lone touchdown the Chargers gave up was in the first quarter.
The Seahawks lost to the Denver Broncos, 21-16, in their first preseason game. Russell Wilson completed four of six pass attempts for 37 yards, as backup Terrelle Pryor got the bulk of the touches, throwing 16 passes for 137 yards and an interception. Pryor was also the Seahawks leading rusher with 28 yards, while the team managed just 3.2 yards per carry on 29 touches overall. The Seahawks managed just one touchdown all game and racked up 298 yards. Really not the best offensive performance from the Seahawks, but Russell Wilson played very little and Marshawn Lynch didn’t play at all. Defensively, the Seahawks allowed 274 yards and allowed a touchdown in three of the four quarters. Cassius Marsh was the only Seahawks defender to come away with a sack.
Let's be honest, preseason games are nothing but a coin flip and probably the toughest thing you'll have to cap all season. So, when I see how well the Chargers played in their first game and the fact they're getting nearly a touchdown, I have no choice but to take the Chargers. This line is insane.
