The team will likely go to Michael Badgley, who is back on the practice squad after filling in for Sturgis, according to Schefter. Now, Seattle has to prove it can beat a quality opponent when the script doesn't play out perfectly.
Clark's sack - he's now recorded at least one in each of the past three games - culminated in a 3-yard loss to set up a third-and-long.
"I've never looked at this like it's a rebuilding year". "There's always going to be some growing time and we saw that the first two weeks of the season. We were right there". In fact, the stand Sunday came with zero seconds remaining, the Seahawks awarded a final untimed down because of a defensive penalty. On the next play, Melvin Gordon rushed for a 34-yard touchdown that gave the Chargers a lead they never lost.
It did not avoid offensive mistakes. He also made a critical turnover, throwing an interception that was returned 42 yards for a touchdown by Desmond King in the fourth quarter. With the Chargers unable to manufacture much of a pass rush and ranking near the bottom of the league in yards per attempt, the stage seems set for Wilson to keep his streak alive and move the offense down the field when he does let it fly.
Seattle got a break on the pass interference call, putting the ball at the 1 for an untimed down. He had been questionable on the final injury report. Carroll said Carson's hip was a lingering problem coming out of last week's victory over Detroit, and a light week of practice wasn't enough for Carson to handle the load early against the Chargers. Davis had 15 carries for 62 yards. "We had to adjust a couple things from first half to second half, and they did a good job, and the players could take advantage of that". 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.
Despite all that, Wilson almost pulled off another fourth-quarter rally.
If the two kickers had converted on all their attempts, they would have added a combined extra eight points in the game.
That's also what the statistics say, as the Seahawks rank 18th in the National Football League with 21 sacks this season.
"We love the spirit that he stood for", Carroll said.
