The Seahawks are 4-3 playing the 5-2 Chargers on Sunday. Both teams are second in the respective divisions. And both teams needs wins.
The Seahawks have Russell Wilson. The Chargers have Philip Rivers. Both teams have great quarterbacks. But this game most likely come down to which team can run the ball better and, therefore, keep the other offense off the field.
That advantage could easily go towards Seattle since Seattle has a renewed ability to run the ball effectively, even against good defenses like the Rams. The Chargers may have a decent defense but they have mostly played bad teams so it is a little difficult to tell.
Against the Rams, the Chargers allowed 171 yards rushing. In their last game before their bye week, Los Angeles allowed the Titans to run for 164 yards. Los Angeles can be run on. And that is how Seattle can win on Sunday and move to 5-3.
