The Seattle Seahawks returned to the Clink on Friday night to face off against the San Diego Chargers in pre-season battle. Their first home game since being crowned Super Bowl champions last year, the 12th man was out in full force as the Hawks went on to crush the Chargers 41 to 14. We’ve got our take-away rundown of the game, and don’t forget to check out the rest of the photos here.

3) Defense kept the pressure up. The Hawks put up 5 sacks, for 27 yards of loss.

They held the Chargers rush to only 78 yards.

San Diego still managed to put up two touchdowns, including this three yard pass to tight end Jake Byrne.

4) Penalties better than last week, but still costly.

The Hawks’ 7 penalties were better than last week’s 20-something, but it still cost them.

The biggest price? Having to forfeit Tharold Simon’s end-zone interception turned 100-yard return for touchdown in the third quarter thanks to Simon’s own illegal contact.

Overall a solid, promising game that puts Denver’s loss behind us…and this coming week’s game against the Bears ahead.

The Seahawks came back home to the Clink Friday night, looking to even up the preseason tally after a loss last week in Denver.

Yes, we’re excited too…the Seahawks are back in town!

And even it up they did. The Hawks crushed the Chargers 41-14. Here’s our game-day takeaways.

1) Hawks QBs got aggressive. Sure, Wilson threw for 105.4 on 11 completions.

But he really made his mark rushing for 31 yards, including two touchdowns.

Tyrelle Pryor got some quality time in the spotlight after Wilson’s departure as the competition for backup QB continues.

He only threw for 10 yards on one completion, but ran for an impression 59 on three carries.

Including a 44-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

Even QB BJ Daniels got in on the action, going 2 for 2 for 34 passing yards and 9 yards rushing including a 6-yard touchdown run in the closing minutes.

2) Turbin comes out big.

With Hawks hero Marshawn Lynch partaking in only a token performance…
