The San Diego Chargers were quickly humbled by the reigning Super Bowl champions on Friday night with a lopsided 41-14 defeat at CenturyLink Field.

Russell Wilson threw for 121 yards and had two rushing touchdowns as Seattle QBs combined to score four times on the ground. Robert Turbin took over for Marshawn Lynch early in the first quarter and finished the night with 12 carries for 81 yards and a score, and Terrelle Pryor added 59 yards rushing, including a 44-yard score in the fourth quarter.

Kellen Clemens carried San Diego's offense for much of the night and led the offense on two scoring drives. He finished the game with two TD throws and 149 yards through the air. 

The Seahawks scored on their first four drives of the game led by a supremely efficient Wilson, who looked in mid-season form by all accounts. Even without the services of Lynch, Seattle had no trouble moving the ball on the ground as they collected 243 rushing yards. 

The Chargers defense struggled to contain the mobility of Seattle's quarterbacks and seemed overmatched early in the contest. With a Week 2 matchup in the regular season looming, the Chargers have plenty to fix before the real deal.
