NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Chargers Crushed in Return to L.A. - Derek Togerson
The Chargers fans in attendance got very few things to cheer about but one was to be expected. Philip Rivers and the starting offense put together a very good opening drive. Against a Seattle defense that was not dipping too far in to its playbook Rivers five of six passes for 56 yards, finishing the drive with a 5-yard TD pass to Antonio Gates that put the Bolts on top 7-0.

LA Chargers Debut at Stubhub Center - Shahan Ahmed
LA's backup quarterback Kellen Clemens had a couple tipped passed picked off, one of which was returned for a touchdown, but the 34-year-old veteran also recorded a passing touchdown on a long bomb thrown to Travis Benjamin, good for 74 yards on the scoring play. Clemens left the game just before halftime with four completions on 10 passing attempts with one touchdown and two interceptions.

Seahawks run over Chargers in preseason opener, 48-17 - Dusty Lane
The starters were mostly non-factors, with most playing only one series. Russell Wilson was 3-for-4 for 41 yards passing, Eddie Lacy carried four times for 10 yards in his Seahawks debut and Earl Thomas didn’t put up any stats but did make his return to the field after last year’s brutal injury.
