Chargers release Sturgis, promote Badgley — Kicker carousel

He averaged just over six yards per attempt and threw a costly interception that was returned for a touchdown.

He'll be lauded for giving Seattle a chance to force overtime on the final, untimed play of regulation following a pass interference penalty against Tyler Lockett in the end zone. Over the last four games, the Chargers have given up 10, 14, 19 and 17 points.

Los Angeles Chargers kicker Caleb Sturgis (6) gets a pat from teammate Michael Schofield after missing a field goal against the Seattle Seahawks during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, in Seattle. Wilson was sacked three times and while he was 15 of 20 passing for 148 yards during that stretch, many of those completions came with Seattle facing long down-and-distance situations. "We saw the opportunities to fill the spots and we thought we could keep moving and going", Carroll said. Rivers has been a consistent playmaker for the Chargers as this was the 7th good game in a row from him. At times, he showed the same brilliance as a week ago against Detroit when he posted the first ideal passer rating in team history.

Badgley kicked in two games when Sturgis could not play due to a quadriceps injury. Carson had just eight carries, leaving Mike Davis as the primary back.

"We love the spirit that he stood for", Carroll said.

Despite all that, Wilson almost pulled off another fourth-quarter rally. If Sturgis even hit the one field goal attempt or one of his extra point tries, the game would've been out of reach and the Seahawks final drive wouldn't have mattered.

The Chargers victory on Sunday left them at 6-2 for the season in the AFC West division, trailing the pace-setting Kansas City Chiefs, who are 8-1 for the year.
