Seattle Seahawks Looked Good In Preaseason Win Over Chargers

Published on August 15, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Colin Cole Sacks Chargers Phillip RiversJim Mora had said his defense would play it “vanilla” in the preseason opener. But the Seahawks also played it aggressively on the Chargers’ first possession, as defensive end Cory Redding got to QB Philip Rivers for a sack on the first down and a big hit from middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu broke up Rivers’ third-down pass to wide receiver Malcom Floyd.

The Chargers drove from their own 20-yard line to the Seahawks’ 42 on their second possession, as Philips fed the ball to LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates. Tomlinson, playing in his first preseason game since 2005, carried four times for 19 yards; and Gates, a Pro Bowl tight end, caught three passes for 17 yards. But the drive stalled when Philips’ third-down pass to Gates was incomplete, and covered forcefully by strong safety Deon Grant.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks’ offense came up inches short on its first two possessions. T.J. Duckett failed to pick up the needed yard on a third-down carry to end the first series, while QB Matt Hasselbeck was just wide on a third-down throw to tight end John Carlson on the second.
