Chargers release Sturgis, promote Badgley — Kicker carousel

With these back-to-back game-saving efforts, the confidence in the defense is growing.

But from the 6, there was no real choice but to pass, and Seattle lined up in a pretty basic passing formation, what is commonly called "11 personnel" - three receivers, one tight end and one running back. The Seahawks finished with 154 yards rushing, but starter Chris Carson didn't play the final 2 ½ quarters due to a lingering hip injury. "I'm hoping the second half of the season will allow us to finish those games and get the wins that we want and turn this season into a really positive year for us".

The Chargers's offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 19 points in the first half. "If our defense keeps playing like that, we'll be OK".

Sturgis, 29, was released after he missed two extra points and a field goal during the Chargers' hard-fought 25-17 victory in Seattle on Sunday.

The end result was too much reliance on Wilson for a fourth-quarter rally.

Yet for all those issues, Wilson was a slightly deflected pass away from leading a remarkable comeback and getting the Seattle Seahawks into overtime against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Carroll indicated that this injury is different than what bothered him back in October, but given that Carson never carried more than 150 times in either college season at Oklahoma State, it's fair to wonder whether he can sustain the workload of a starting running back given his punishing, unrelentingly physical run style. Guard D.J. Fluker injured a leg in the fourth quarter. "We had a chance but it didn't work", Wilson said. Irvin spent his first four seasons in Seattle and the Seahawks could use a boost in the pass rush. "Let's wait and see what happens", Carroll said.
