Chargers Upset Seahawks 25-17
The Seattle Seahawks have lost just two of their last six games. Unfortunately, both of those losses have been two teams from Los Angeles as they fell to the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend, 25-17. Seattle would score first, but would give up 19 unanswered points and would trail by nine heading into the half. Each team would add a touchdown of the fourth quarter, but Seattle could get no closer in the eight-point loss.
Russell Wilson completed 26 of 39 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. The running attack continues to struggle for Seattle, as Mike Davis had 62 yards rushing on 15 carries. Doug Baldwin had four catches for 77 yards.
The Seahawks are averaging 23.5 points per game while giving up 19.5 on average. Russell Wilson is averaging only about 220 yards passing per game, throwing for 1791 yards and 18 touchdowns this season.

The Winner Prediction
Los Angeles is favored by 10 in this game and there are a lot of reasons to believe they can hold serve on that. They are 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams in Los Angeles and are a team averaging 33 points per game. However, this is still a good Seattle defense and although the Rams are going to win, they are not going to win by 10. Take Seattle and the points.
The Pick: Seattle Seahawks (+10.0)
These two teams are averaging better than 55 points per game but they are only giving up 42 per contest. These are two good offenses, but they are two exceptional defenses and that should keep the scoring down.
The Pick: Under 51.0
