Rivers, Gordon leads Chargers past Seahawks 25-17

Most costly, he misread coverage and threw a pass that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.

The Chargers brought a three-game winning streak into their game against Tennessee two weeks ago; they left with a four-game streak.

Carson didn't play much after the first quarter, spending most of the time on the sideline with a wrap on his upper left leg due to a hip injury. A completed pass here or a properly executed block there could have made the difference.

The Seahawks allowed 11 explosive plays on defense in their loss to the Chargers.

He'll be lauded for giving Seattle a chance to force overtime on the final, untimed play of regulation following a pass interference penalty against Tyler Lockett in the end zone. That makes it eight straight good games in a row from Rivers. The Chargers averaged 10 yards per play in the first half and scored touchdowns on three of their five possessions, the last one taking just 55 seconds to find the end zone on a 30-yard catch-and-run by Mike Williams.

NOTES: Carroll said G D.J. Fluker (calf) appeared to be OK. They also had a moment of silence for Allen and had the "12 Flag" that's raised before every game lowered to half-staff.

Seattle might well have run it from the 1 - coach Pete Carroll wouldn't say for certain afterward what the Seahawks would have done.

The Los Angeles Chargers will welcome back Melvin Gordon on Sunday after the star running back missed the team's previous game with a hamstring injury.

The Chargers are slated to visit the Raiders at 4:05 p.m. ET in Week 10 action. If Sturgis even hit the one field goal attempt or one of his extra point tries, the game would've been out of reach and the Seahawks final drive wouldn't have mattered.
