The storyline
Does this seem like an abnormally easy start to the season for a 13-win team? Yeah, I thought so, too.

Why you should watch
The Seahawks already pulled one upset at home, but this is probably asking too much. Especially since the Chargers already blew a game at Kansas City.

Did you know?
The Chargers have won five in a row against NFC opponents. ... San Diego is 11-1 when Antonio Gates has two or more receiving touchdowns in a game. ... Since 2005, Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck is 28-10 at home. ... Seattle RB Justin Forsett has a 5.5 yard per carry average in his career.
