Grant SmithNov 07, 2018

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Caleb Sturgis (6) gets a pat from teammate Michael Schofield after missing a field goal against the Seattle Seahawks during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, in Seattle.

"It throws off the trajectory of the pass, " Seattle receiver Jaron Brown said later when asked about the impact of even a slight tip.

But from the 6, there was no real choice but to pass, and Seattle lined up in a pretty basic passing formation, what is commonly called "11 personnel" - three receivers, one tight end and one running back. Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start. A completed pass here or a properly executed block there could have made the difference.

Rivers became the fourth quarterback in league history to start 200 straight games, joining Brett Favre, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning. "There's always going to be some growing time and we saw that the first two weeks of the season".

Seattle also didn't have answers for Keenan Allen, who had 124 yards on six receptions. Carson had just eight carries, leaving Mike Davis as the primary back.

Gordon is officially questionable on the injury report.

Listed as inactive were running back C.J. Prosise; cornerback Neiko Thorpe; safety Maurice Alexander; guard Jordan Simmons; offensive lineman Ethan Pocic; defensive tackle Naz Jones; and defensive tackle Poon Ford.

Seattle played a lengthy tribute video honoring owner Paul Allen who died on October 15 due to complications from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. "He affected all of us. his wisdom and his charity and his love for this area".

Sturgis, 29, was released after he missed two extra points and a field goal during the Chargers' hard-fought 25-17 victory in Seattle on Sunday.

It's the third consecutive game Sturgis missed a PAT and field goal, making him the first player since the Oakland Raiders' Jim Breech in 1979 to earn the unwanted feat.
