The Seattle Seahawks have a lot of weapons in the running game with Marshawn Lynch and Percy Harvin. Russell Wilson also can be a threat running the ball and the San Diego Chargers will have to keep their attention on all of these playmakers during the game.

Here are some of the key players on the Chargers defense to help slow down the Seahawks offense.

Eric Weddle

Weddle is always going to be a key player on the defense. In this game, he will likely be spying Russell Wilson on a number of plays. He will also be in the box looking to stop the run. He will be a key figure in slowing down the Seahawks offense.

Weddle is one of the best defenders on the field and we need to hear his name a few times during the day. He needs to get his hands on some passes and make some tackles on some tough runners. He should have a busy day on the field.
