Gates still a slam dunk for Chargers at age 34

SAN DIEGO (AP) Go ahead and question Antonio Gates because he's 34. Feel free to wonder whether he's lost a step.

Gates' first TD was an over-the-shoulder...

Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin fined for boneheaded late hit on Philip Rivers

There were plenty of plays in the Seattle Seahawks’ loss to the Chargers on Sunday that Seahawks fans would like to forget. All three of Antonio Gates touchdown catches, the big sacks on Russell Wilson, and so on.

It was a crazy weekend for the NFL both on the field and off. The San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks game was no exception.

Road Worriers – The Seattle Seahawks Have Yet To Master Away Games
