SEATTLE (AP) — Russell Wilson threw for 121 yards and ran for two touchdowns, leading Seattle to scores on all four of his possessions and the Seahawks beat the San Diego Chargers 41-14 on Friday night.
Wilson did a little of everything. He was pressured on the first snap of the game and avoided it to complete a pass. He scrambled when the pressure created clear running lanes. He threw sharp passes to open receivers and he operated Seattle’s offense with an efficiency missing in its preseason opener at Denver.
Wilson completed 11 of 13 passes, and connected on his first eight attempts in Seattle’s first appearance at home since winning the Super Bowl. He ran for another 31 yards as Seattle finished the first half with 260 yards of offense, 255 of those with Wilson at quarterback.
