LEON WASHINGTON LIFTS SEAHAWKS TO 27-20 WIN OVER CHARGERS
by Chuck Carroll on September 26, 2010 a 7:48 PM

From FootballNewsNow.com --

Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates would not be denied. Neither would Rivers and Legedu Naanee.

Rivers hit Gates on a touchdown pass with six minutes left in the game to draw within two. The touchdown was called back on a holding call. So, the pair just connected in the end zone again on the following play.

On the subsequent two-point conversion Rivers found Naanee in the back of the end zone. That too was negated by penalty–an illegal touch. So, in a carbon copy of the touchdown, the pair connected on the very next play to draw the score even.

And then Leon Washington took the wind out of San Diego’s sails. Washington took the kickoff 99 yards to pay dirt to give the Seahawks the lead once again. Only this time they wouldn’t relinquish and would hold off the Bolts for a 27-20 win.

It was Washington’s second kick return for a touchdown of the day.

Much like Kyle Orton in Denver, Rivers’ big day was spoiled by the loss. The Chargers quarterback was 29-of-53 passing for an impressive 455 yards and two scores.

He also had two picks to cool him off a bit.

Antonio Gates proved he is still among the top tight ends in the game with seven catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.

Malcom Floyd had six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown of his own.

The Chargers’ ground game struggled a bit without Ryan Mathews as Mike Tolbert carried the ball 17 times for 73 yards, but did not score.

For Seattle, Matt Hasselbeck was 19-of-32 passing for 220 yards, one score and a pick.

Tight end John Carlson led the Seahawks in receiving with five catches for 61 yards and a touchdown.

Deion Branch was a yard behind with his own five grabs for 60 yards.

Justin Forsett carried the ball 17 times for 63 yards.

If special teams gave the Seahawks the win, their defense sealed it.

In addition to two interceptions, the Seahawks forced–and recovered–three fumbles.
