Tight End Stephen Alexander set a career-high with 129 yards receiving today. It was his first career 100-yard receiving game. He also caught his first touchdown pass of the season.

Eric Parker caught his first career touchdown pass, a 31 yard reception, which was also his longest of the season.

The Chargers allowed a 300 yard passer for the eighth time this year.

Matt Hasselbeck threw for a personal and Seattle team record of 449 yards, completing 36 of 53 passes. The 36 completions were also a team record breaking the old mark of 33 by Dave Krieg against Atlanta in 1985. He broke his own club yardage record of 427 at San Francisco on Dec. 1st.
