Final Score

Seattle Seahawks 23, Los Angeles Chargers 15

Seattle Seahawks

Russel Wilson missed an open receiver early in the game, but later showed great accuracy on intermediate and deep passes setting up a couple of touchdowns for Seattle. His standout pass of the night was a 30-yard pass to Tyler Lockett early in the second quarter.

Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright both looked a little bit rusty coming out of the gates with some missed tackles and poor plays versus the run and the pass. With Seattle losing multiple defensive stalwarts this past offseason, the pressure on Wright and Wagner is going to be higher than it has ever been in the past.

Rookie Takeaways

Wide receiver John Ursua had a productive game, catching both of his targets for 52 yards and 36 yards after the catch.

Los Angeles Chargers

Rayshawn Jenkins had a nice night at the safety position. He had an especially nice play in the first quarter where he was able to recover on a deep pass down the left sideline to knock the ball away from Lockett.

On a night where Philip Rivers sat on the bench, Tyrod Taylor received the start and was unable to produce much offense as a passer. While he did create some yards with his legs early on, he also missed a number of throws that became a trend in his 2018 season with the Browns.

Rookie Takeaways

Linebacker Drue Tranquill had himself another productive game at linebacker for the Chargers, making an impact both against the run and in coverage.
