Seahawks opponent this week: San Diego Chargers

Published on September 23, 2010 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

1:15 P.M., SUNDAY, QWEST FIELD

AGAINST THE SEAHAWKS: The Seahawks face another former AFC West rival for a second straight week in San Diego. The game is the 49th meeting between the teams, with Seattle holding a 25-23 advantage. They played twice a year from 1978-2001, and San Diego is the only former AFC West opponent against which Seattle owns a winning record. In the last meeting on Dec. 24, 2006, at Qwest Field, Philip Rivers threw a 37-yard touchdown to Vincent Jackson with 29 seconds left to win the game, 20-17.

STATS AND STUFF: Ex-Charger Dan Fouts, who will be calling the game on Sunday for CBS, is the all-time series leader in passing yards between the two teams with a 440-yard performance on 29 of 43 passing with four touchdowns and one interception in a 49-35 Chargers loss on September 15, 1985, in San Diego. … San Diego quarterback Rivers is fourth in the league in passing yards (632), tied for second in touchdowns (5) and third in passer rating (107). … Two games into his brief career, rookie Ryan Mathews has 101 rushing yards on 24 carries and three catches for 31 yards. Mathews also has two fumbles and no touchdowns. The two fumbles have likely cost the Chargers 10 points. … The Chargers forced six turnovers in Sunday’s 38-13 win over Jacksonville.

QUOTABLE: “When you’re young, guys go after you and they want to pull the ball away from you. He just has to continue to work to protect it.” – San Diego head coach Norv Turner on Mathews’ early season fumbling issues.
