It was close to 100 degrees Sunday in San Diego, and the Seahawks crumbled under the heat.
Philip Rivers picked apart Seattle’s secondary and the Chargers upset the Seahawks, 30-21, in a match-up of former AFC West rivals.
Seattle’s defense struggled on third downs. The Seahawks offense was explosive, but the Chargers dominated time of possession. A key fumble by Percy Harvin on a kick return also shifted momentum in San Diego’s favor.
It was an unexpected early loss for the defending Super Bowl champions, and it won’t get any easier next week with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos coming to town.
