NFL Preseason Preview - San Diego (1-0) at Seattle (0-1)



By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) - The reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks kick off the home portion of their preseason schedule by entertaining the San Diego Chargers on Friday.

Seattle began defense of the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy by coming up short against Denver last week in a rematch from Super Bowl XLVIII.

Brock Osweiler's 34-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Norwood in the fourth quarter lifted the Broncos to a 21-16 win just over six months after the Seahawks decimated Denver in the big game.

The game was delayed for 45 minutes because of lightning with 1:30 remaining in the first quarter after Ronnie Hillman's 1-yard touchdown gave the Broncos a 7-0 lead.

Terrelle Pryor, acquired from Oakland in April, passed for 137 yards for the Seahawks. Starter Russell Wilson completed four of his six passes for 37 yards and led Seattle to a touchdown on its second possession, Christine Michael's 1-yard score in the second quarter.

Steven Hauschka kicked three field goals for the Seahawks, including two of at least 40 yards.

Pryor led the Seahawks to the Denver 3-yard line in the final minutes of the game but was intercepted in the end zone by linebacker Steven Johnson.

The Chargers, meanwhile, got things started on the right foot, dominating Dallas, 27-7, in their preseason opener.

San Diego, which went 9-7 last season before losing to the Broncos in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, racked up 395 yards of total offense on Dallas.

Philip Rivers played one series and completed all four of his passes for 61 yards. Backup Kellen Clemens connected on all five of his passes for 134 yards and a touchdown and Brad Sorensen completed 5-of-7 passes for 48 yards.

Rookie running back Branden Oliver carried the ball seven times for 64 yards and a score San Diego, which had 152 yards on the ground. Dontrelle Inman caught three passes for 107 yards and a touchdown.
