3 units on Seattle PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
There is no doubt that San Diego was the most talented team not to make the playoffs a year ago, while Seattle was arguably the least talented team to make the postseason. The Chargers when they did win, they won big with six double-digit wins on the season. The problem was that this team made big mistakes, and lots of them - their special teams alone cost them three games! Seattle didn't play in many close games winning five by 10+ but losing nine by 10+. The Chargers’ emphasis in the preseason is going to be assembling a special teams unit that gives their talent a chance to win. Seattle has a new offensive coordinator in Darrell Bevell. The Seahawks are good against the run and that will help Seattle stay close. Philip Rivers will probably only play three series here, so the opportunity for the unsettled QB situation in Seattle will be the difference maker. The Seahawks QB hopefuls will challenge each other for playing time against second and third-team Chargers defensive units. Play on Seattle.
