Seahawks vs Chargers Preview
Seahawks starting quarterback Russell Wilson, like much of Seattle’s first-string offense, made his preseason debut on Sunday as the Seahawks lost to the Minnesota Vikings 25-19 and fell to 1-1.
Wilson went 6-of-9 for 82 yards over a pair of drives that resulted in a punt and a field goal.
“I thought we had a good, competitive first half in the game,” head coach Pete Carroll said, according to Seahawks.com. “I thought the Vikings did a nice job in the second half. They out-executed us. Third down-wise, that was a big difference in this game. They did really well. We didn’t.”
Carroll added: “Real anxious to see the film. I thought the first unit did a nice job. We did a nice job with tempo. Russell Wilson was moving pretty well. Missed a couple third down throws that would have made a big difference in their outing, but they did move the football well. First line protected well, did all the things we hoped to do just getting started. This is the first outing for those guys. That was a positive. We’ll see. We have things to fix.”
Seattle’s lone touchdown of the night came on defense. Defensive back DeShawn Shead, who played for the Seahawks from 2013 to 2018 before spending last season with the Detroit Lions, intercepted Minnesota’s Sean Mannion and went 88 yards for a score in the second quarter.
“As soon as I caught the ball, I looked up and there were just a couple of guys to my left,” the 30-year-old said, per Seahawks.com. “I knew then, that I was going to outrun them. My mindset was to score by getting the ball in the end zone for my team, then line up for the next play.”
The Chargers fell to 0-2 on the preseason with a 19-17 defeat to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
The contest marked Jaylen Watkins’ first game action since he tore an ACL one year earlier, to the day. The 27-year-old defensive back intercepted Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the first quarter and made a pair of solo tackles.
“The biggest step for me (Sunday) was play one that I got on the field,” Watkins said, according to Chargers.com. “Just seeing the process of re-thinking of all the rehab and all that and getting back out there. The first play I think I was out there with [Adrian Phillips] and all them, it just felt really good.”
