SEATTLE (AP) — Jahleel Addae saw Russell Wilson’s pass coming in his direction. He didn’t see David Moore running open behind him in the back of the end zone [url=http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/josh-oliver-jersey-cheap]Josh Oliver Jersey[/url] , and as the pass floated past, Addae reached out his right arm as far as he could.“I got my last fingernail on it,” Addae said. “I barely snipped it.”Another last-second challenge for the Los Angeles Chargers defense. Another victory for the surging Chargers, holding off Wilson’s late rally for a 25-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.Article continues below ...The Chargers won their fifth straight, putting a capper on Philip Rivers‘ 200th consecutive start with another clutch defensive stand. Rivers threw two touchdowns, Melvin Gordon ran for 113 yards, yet those two were standing on the sideline watching after a pass interference call against Michael Davis on the final play of regulation gave Seattle an untimed down and a chance to force overtime.And just like they did in London when the Chargers denied Tennessee’s 2-point conversion attempt to preserve a 20-19 win, the defense came through again.“It shouldn’t have come down to that but it did,” Rivers said. “We found a way to win. These kinds of wins are huge.”Rivers threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyrell Williams and 30 yards to Mike Williams, and let the Chargers defense stymie Wilson until the final minutes. Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start.Desmond King provided the deciding points for Los Angeles (6-2) by stepping in front of Wilson’s pass for Moore and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown with 6:44 remaining to give the Chargers a 25-10 lead.Wilson managed to make the final minutes nervous for Los Angeles.“We had a chance to win a game that’s right there for us,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “It was going to be dramatic, but we’re OK about that.”Wilson hit Nick Vannett on a 6-yard TD with 1:50 remaining to cut the Chargers’ lead to one score. Seattle got the ball back with 1:24 left at its own 22 and after two completions and a roughing the passer penalty on Melvin Ingram, the Seahawks were at the Chargers 44 with 50 seconds left. Wilson scrambled for 16 yards to the Chargers 28 and [url=http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey-cheap]http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey-cheap[/url ] , after a spike, Seattle had 30 seconds left.Seattle (4-4) got a break when Davis was called for pass interference in the end zone on the final play of regulation against Tyler Lockett, putting the ball at the 1 for an untimed down. Seattle’s J.R. Sweezy was called for false start backing the play up to the 6, and Wilson’s final attempt for Moore in the back of the end zone was partially tipped by Addae and fell incomplete.“It’s like winning a playoff game,” Chargers defensive lineman Brandon Mebane said. “That was like a playoff game.”Wilson was 26 of 39 for 235 yards, and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Jaron Brown on Seattle’s opening drive.Rivers became the fourth quarterback in league history to start 200 straight games, joining Brett Favre, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning. Favre started an NFL-record 297 straight times in the regular season. This wasn’t like his 2010 performance in Seattle when Rivers threw for 455 yards, but he made key throws at important times, especially in the first half. The Chargers averaged 10 yards per play in the first half and scored touchdowns on three of their five possessions, the last one taking just 55 seconds to find the end zone on a 30-yard catch-and-run by Mike Williams.Gordon averaged 7.1 yards per carry and ran through huge holes in the second half. His 34-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter gave him 34 TDs in his past 36 games after going scoreless in his first 14 games.Seattle also didn’t have answers for Keenan Allen, who had 124 yards on six receptions.“It’s great, any time we can go on the road [url=http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/ryquell-armstead-jersey-cheap]Ryquell Armstead Jersey[/url] , loudest place in the league and get a win the way we did,” Allen said. “I thought it was dominating, outside the points we missed, but pretty great.”INJURIESCarson didn’t play much after the first quarter, spending most of the time on the sideline with a wrap on his upper left leg due to a hip injury. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench. … Seattle played the second half without starting strong safety Bradley McDougald due to a knee injury. He had been questionable on the final injury report. … Guard D.J. Fluker injured a leg in the fourth quarter.REMEMBERING PAULSeattle played a lengthy tribute video honoring owner Paul Allen who died on Oct. 15 due to complications from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. They also had a moment of silence for Allen and had the “12 Flag” that’s raised before every game lowered to half-staff.Seattle also had logos added to the field reading “PGA” similar to the patches the team had added to its uniforms.“We love the spirit that he stood for,” Carroll said. “He affected all of us… his wisdom and his charity and his love for this area.”KICKING WOESChargers kicker Caleb Sturgis might be looking for a new job after missing two extra points and a 42-yard field goal attempt. Sturgis is the first kicker with a missed extra point and missed field goal in three straight games since Raiders kicker Jim Breech in 1979.UP NEXTChargers: Travel to Oakland to face the Raiders.Seahawks: At NFC West foe Los Angeles Rams. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are sticking with Blake Bortles as their starting quarterback.Coach Doug Marrone made the announcement Monday, one day after benching Bortles early in the third quarter of a 20-7 loss to Houston.“I spoke to both quarterbacks this afternoon and told them Blake will be our team’s starting quarterback,” Marrone said in a statement. “I believe this gives us the best opportunity to win.”Bortles fumbled on Jacksonville’s third play in each half, leading to 10 points for the Texans and prompting Marrone to switch to Cody Kessler. Marrone said after the game he would open up the QB job for the second time in as many years. He also benched Bortles in the 2017 preseason, only to give him back the job nine days later.Marrone took less than 24 hours to go back to Bortles this time, saying he will start Sunday’s game against Philadelphia (3-4) in London.The Jaguars (3-4) have lost three in a row and four of five, derailing a season that started with Super Bowl aspirations.Jacksonville seemingly reached a low point Sunday when the locker room erupted in fiery emotion following a third consecutive lopsided loss in which the offense failed to score in the first half. Calais Campbell was seen holding back fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue when the locker room briefly opened to the media. It was the final scene of frustration that also included screaming [url=http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/gardner-minshew-ii-jersey-cheap]http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/gardner-minshew-ii-jersey-cheap[/url ] , shouting and finger pointing.Campbell, an 11-year veteran and one of six team captains, called a players-only meetings Monday to “talk about some issues.”“Will it help?” defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “Hopefully so. Hopefully guys will speak up and not be silent, hopefully talk about some issues that they feel are bothering them.”The Jaguars have been mostly inept on both sides of the ball during the losing streak, trailing 23-0 at Kansas City, 24-0 at Dallas and 20-0 at home against the Texans.The injury-riddled offense can’t do what it’s built to do — run the football — and has a lackluster receiving corps dropping balls at inopportune times. The high-profile defense can’t stop the run and has allowed too many big plays.“People are strained,” Jackson said. “This is a business about producing, about winning, and we’re not producing or winning right now. This locker room is not going to tear apart for a few losses. Hell, we went 3-13 our first year here.”The expectations were much higher after advancing to the AFC title game in January, which is why the locker room started to crack and crumble.“You can’t have little groups or little indecision of what is the right way or the proper way. You have to get everyone in the same boat,” Marrone said, pointing out the team is minus-12 in turnover differential. “We have done this to ourselves [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/nick-bosa-jersey-cheap]Nick Bosa Jersey[/url] , and the only people going to be able to dig us out of it is ourselves. But we all have to have the same vision on how to do it.“My thing to the team is we can go in all of these different directions, but if these two things do not change, those two things do not change, those directions aren’t going to matter.”Bortles was the scapegoat Sunday, with Marrone making the move to “put everyone on notice.”Bortles completed 6 of 12 passes for 61 yards, fumbling twice on third-down scrambles.Kessler came off the bench and had a short touchdown pass to T.J. Yeldon, but he was sacked four times in five drives, plus threw an interception and fumbled.It’s really not that surprising Marrone stuck with Bortles. The team signed him to a three-year, $54 million contract in February with the belief he was good enough to lead the defensive-minded team back to the playoffs.Bortles played turnover-free football in the postseason, gaining top executive Tom Coughlin’s confidence and landing the new contract. He’s played with far less efficiency lately, managing two TD passes and eight turnovers in the three straight losses.NOTES: The Jaguars released veteran running back Jamaal Charles three days after acquiring Carlos Hyde from Cleveland. Hyde is expected to play a significant role against the Eagles. … Marrone said injured RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) will travel to London.
