Michael Badgley Gets To Kick At High Altitude Again

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Michael Badgley will be booting the ball a mile high this week when he faces the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.

Hunter Henry Should See Plenty Of Chances

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has been a strong option since he returned to the lineup, and he'll likely be one of the team's most important assets this Sunday.

Keenan Allen In For Another Rough Outing

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is expected to have his hands full once again when he faces Denver and Chris Harris Jr. on Sunday.

Austin Ekeler Could Be A Sleeper Against Denver

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler has been all over the map recently, but his performance last week should give owners hope that the LA coaching staff has figured out a better use for him.

Melvin Gordon Will Need To Carry The Team

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon has played very well over the last three games, but he's going to need to find a way to get it done against the strong Denver defense if LA has a chance of winning Sunday's game. With Philip Rivers struggling badly in the team's last two games, don't... Read More

Josh Gordon Barely Gets Looked At In Philly

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon was the focus of a lot of media speculation this week as everyone predicted big things for the ex-Patriot.

Jacob Hollister Overthrown On TD Chance

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister finally posted what appears to be a forgettable game by looking at the box score, but he was robbed by a horrific throw by Russell Wilson.

Malik Turner Gets His First NFL Touchdown

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Malik Turner got to celebrate for the first time as he hauled in his first NFL touchdown during Sunday's win over the Eagles.

D.K. Metcalf Drops TD Pass

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf only caught three of six passes on Sunday, posting one of his worst games as a pro.

Tyler Lockett Only Has One Catch In Philadelphia

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett was fully cleared by the doctors for his shin contusion before hitting the field on Sunday, but he didn't play a huge role as he only hauled in one pass on the day.

Chris Carson Shown Up Against Eagles

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has been a workhorse for Seattle this year, and discussions about his workload abounded this week. Sunday took care of managing that.

Russell Wilson Wins Again In Philly

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson certainly didn't have the best game of his career, but he did enough to bring home another W on the road.

Jacob Hollister Remains Red Zone Threat

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister has been propelled from an unknown to a serious red zone threat in a matter of two weeks.
