No one expected this to be an easy game for Seattle. The Los Angeles Chargers have been playing fantastic football this season, and quarterback Philip Rivers is, well… Philip Rivers.
While the Seahawks have also been playing well, most knew this game was very important for both teams, and they would come out swinging.
The first drive of the game showed how improved the Seattle offense has been in the last few games. Taking over 8 minutes off the clock, and going 75 yards down the field, the Seahawks drive was capped by a beautiful touchdown catch by wide receiver Jaron Brown.
Wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow is no stranger to many in Seattle, but a name not well known in the NFL. He is working hard to change that during the preseason.
Stringfellow’s football career didn’t start off on the best foot. After playing for the University of Washington, he was suspended from the team for fighting with Seahawks fans after the Seattle Super Bowl win. He then transferred to Ole Miss where he played for 2 seasons. In his final season there, he caught 46 passes, for 716 yards and 6 touchdowns.
He went undrafted in 2017, but was picked up by the Miami Dolphins. He was waived by the Dolphins prior to the season starting but was signed by the New York Jets. He spent the season on the practice squad.
Seattle signed him to a contract a few months ago, and Stringfellow has been impressing people ever since. With there being a lot of competition at the WR position in Seattle, most didn’t have him making it to the 53 man roster. However, after the first preseason game, and the way he has shown up in practice, minds are being changed.
