This is your spot to talk about the Los Angeles Chargers stomping on the Seattle Seahawks.

I have been SUCKING at getting posts up and I apologize! It has been crazy and our team has been playing amazing. I even forgot getting the open thread up last game against the Tennessee Titans. It was a little early though and I even slept through the first half of the game.

Anyway, we get some extra sleep with daylight savings time! We are coming off of the BYE week and we are ready to take on the second half of the season. It starts off with a good matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. This should be a good test to see where we stack up in the league. Everyone believes that the Chargers should be competing in the playoffs at the end of the year. The Seahawks need to keep pace for a wild card spot, so this will be a big win for them at home.

The Chargers offense is too strong and should come out quick against the Seahawks. Philip Rivers has been playing like an MVP this season. Hopefully Melvin Gordon will get on the field. He is a difference maker this season. Gordon has been dominating in the run game and has been a huge threat in the passing game. Look for him to continue his amazing season as soon as he gets back.

Which receiver is going to have the big play this week? Tyrell Williams has been the hottest threat lately and Mike Williams continues to blossom. Keenan Allen is consistent. Philip Rivers just spreads it around.

On defense, the team will need to get to Russell Wilson. Melvin Ingram and Derwin James will be the keys. Can they make some big plays to force some turnovers?

Who do you expect to step up this week?
