Los Angeles Chargers release kicker Caleb Sturgis

That's because the Chargers were able to roll to 19 unanswered points in the first half while Rivers rarely felt the heat from the Seahawks' defense.

Richards has had stints on Los Angeles' practice squad the past two seasons. This play design is great versus Cover 3 defenses with three deep defenders, and since the Chargers primarily play. Rivers completed just 50% of his passes for 228 yards, but he didn't turn the ball over and threw a pair of touchdowns along the way. "If our defense keeps playing like that, we'll be OK". He got all the first-team reps and (was) really focused and was really in on it, and he played the game exactly like he practiced. Seattle allowed a 34-yard touchdown run by Gordon, a 28-yard run by Keenan Allen, a 54-yard pass to Allen and a 30-yard TD toss to Mike Williams. Melvin Gordon ran for 113 yards on just 16 carries, averaging 7.1 yards per rush. "When you look at the past few weeks, you look at how much we improved from where we started, it's obvious". But at the end of the day, we didn't come to show that today. That makes it eight straight good games in a row from Rivers. Seattle's intended style worked to perfection on the opening drive when Wilson used up more than half of the first quarter and capped the 13-play drive with a 10-yard TD pass to Brown. You can't sit back and feel like we've got the whole world in our hands.

"We love the spirit that he stood for", Carroll said.

"The defense did a flawless job of taking the ball off of them, " Carroll said. "The coaches did a nice job adjusting".

The injury kept McDougald out for most of the second half, leaving second-year Delano Hill to take over the reins. "We're a young team, we're climbing".

Sturgis, 29, was released after he missed two extra points and a field goal during the Chargers' hard-fought 25-17 victory in Seattle on Sunday. That said, I am going to go ahead and be the bad sport and grade the refs with an F.
