Chargers vs. Seahawks: By The Numbers

Let’s take a look at this matchup on paper.

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks have been one of the biggest surprises of the 2022 season and that’s mainly due to the resurgent play of quarterback Geno Smith. He’s got Seattle’s offense humming along to a much better tune than many would have ever expected and it’s kept the Seahawks at or above .500, something his predecessor hasn’t been able to do in Denver.

Both of these offense can put up points when it all clicks. Both of these defense can allow points when they don’t.

It’s sure to be an exciting matchup and one that any football fan should enjoy. So let’s take a look at this matchup on paper and see what’s on tap for Sunday.
