Preseason (Week 3): San Diego Chargers 18, Seattle Seahawks 17

Seattle running back Justin Forsett has been the shining star in each of the games he has played this preseason. But last night, another short one, this time 5-foot-6 Darren Sproles, was the star running back. Sproles did it for the San Diego Chargers against the Seahawks. He posted 101 yards while NFL rushing champ LaDainian Tomlinson watched from the sidelines. Sproles is battling rookie Jacob Hester for the No. 2 RB job. By the way, Forsett ended the game with nine yards on just four carries.

The Seattle Seahawks saw quarterback Charlie Frye goes most of the game. Frye was 19 of 29 for 219 yards and two touchdowns.

Kudos to Norv Turner for going for the win on a two-point conversion with 2:30 left in the game. This way you avoid overtime. Something New York Jets coach Eric Mangini didn't do when the Jets lost to the Redskins earlier in preseason action.
