Los Angeles Chargers vs. Seattle Seahawks open thread

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers (5-2) travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks (4-3) in a matchup that will tell us a lot about the Chargers’ playoff chances. They are sitting in a good spot as far as their record and their only two losses came against two of the NFL’s three best teams in the Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. If they are able to win today, beating the Seahawks on the road will be by far their best victory.

Philip Rivers continues to play as well as if not better than he ever has before. Melvin Gordon will be back after sitting against the Tennessee Titans in England. The Bolts are still without Joey Bosa and Kyzir White, but they are otherwise quite healthy and should be able to contain the Seattle offense. The Legion of Boom is no more and the offense ought to be able to put up points, but this game is going to be a huge challenge.
