Anybody who thought the Seattle Seahawks might be experiencing a little bit of a letdown after their Super Bowl victory were obviously turned the other way in the opening game of the 2014 NFL season, as they registered a 36-16 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Now they get ready to take a road trip, as they travel down the West Coast to face off against the San Diego Chargers, as pro football betting action commences at 4:05 PM ET at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
San Diego will have to get over the disappointment of blowing a 17-6 lead and losing 18-17 to the Arizona Cardinals in their opener. This game presents a very interesting scenario, in the respect that Seattle played in a Thursday night game, while San Diego was in action on Monday night, so Seattle has several more days to rest and prepare for this game.
It goes without saying that the Charger defense has to deal with a lot of speed on the Seattle side, with an additional weapon on display, as Percy Harvin is being used in a number of creative ways by the Seahawks.

If you watched event Thursday night game with Seattle and Green Bay, you noticed that Aaron Rogers did not for a once in the direction of Richard Sherman, the Seahawks’ All-Pro cornerback. If it is possible to take one of San Diego’s wide receivers out of play, as Sherman seemed to do against the Packers, it will make it much more difficult for Philip Rivers to operate. As you are undoubtedly aware, Rivers had perhaps the best season of his career in 2013, with 32 touchdown passes and only 11 interceptions. He was taken a long way by offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who has since moved on to take the head-coaching job with the Tennessee Titans. But San Diego’s head coach, Mike McCoy, who knows a little bit about offense himself, is still there, with Frank Reich, the former Buffalo Bills backup quarterback, moving up to the coordinator job after serving as the quarterback coach.

It is apparent to pro football bettors that San Diego seems to have more stability on the offensive line than they did a year ago, and they can spread the ball out to a number of different weapons. Of course, BetAnySports customers know that Seattle might be able to handle some of those weapons. For example, Kam Chancellor, one of the best strong safeties in the business, may have what it takes to slow down San Diego tight end Antonio Gates. This could put a lot of pressure on whichever Charger receiver is not being covered by Sherman. This will have to be a game where Rivers gets some help from his running attack, namely Ryan Matthews, who had 53 yards rushing against Arizona in the opening game. Top
