I know the San Diego Chargers are supposed to focus on the Arizona Cardinals game on Monday Night, but that doesn’t stop all the fans from looking ahead at the week 2 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks opened up the season on Thursday against the Green Bay Packers and they looked like they were already in mid-season form.

The Seahawks defense was flying around the field and making big hits on ball carriers. I can’t help but think about Ryan Mathews and the other injury prone players on the roster. They are about to take some big hits. That is what the Seahawks do. They won’t play that soft game and they are always looking for that knockout hit.
The Packers have a legit offense, but I think the Chargers have a different type of offense that still will be able to move the ball against the Seahawks. I think the Chargers will be able to move the ball on all teams this year. The theory will be put to the test in the early season though. The Cardinals have a tough defense and the Seahawks have the best defense in the league.
The Chargers marched the ball down the field against the defense in the preseason with the first team. Will they be able to make it happen when it counts? I think they will.
