The Seattle Seahwaks will be bringing over their running game to San Diego and will be looking to march down the field with that stout attack. We all know about Marshawn Lynch and his ability to break tackles and make yards on the ground. They also use WR Percy Harvin in the backfield as well and he has the speed and quickness to break loose on long runs. Added to those threats are a pair of good young backs in their backfield and the ability of Russell Wilson to take off as well.

This will be a huge test on the Chargers run defense. The team was able to do a decent job against the Cardinals  attack. They were facing an injured Andre Ellington though and will get a much tougher test this weekend. How will John Pagano prepare for this attack.

Hopefully the team will get LB Kavell Conner involved in the game more in the run game. He is a big hitter and will be needed against this physical Seahawks team. It would be nice to see Jahleel Addae available for the game, but he still has not been able to join the team in practice with his hamstring injury. The players in the secondary will need to step up and make some tackles as well. The Chargers have some new playmakers on defense. We will see how they react against this Seahawks offense.

Who needs to step up on defense to stop this Seahawks ground attack?
