Why doesn't everyone do this against the Seahawks? Control the ball and the clock. Make fewer turnovers and more third downs. Pressure the quarterback. Stop the run.
The Chargers took copious notes on the Seattle methodology and shoved the notebook in the face of the Seahawks Sunday afternoon in San Diego, 30-21. Abetted by 110-degree-plus field temperatures and eight Seattle penalties, some acutely foolish, it was remarkable the Seahawks had the ball with three minutes left and a chance to win.
