SEATTLE -- Russell Wilsons first appearance at home since hoisting the Lombardi Trophy looked very similar to Seattles Super Bowl domination, even in a limited performance. Custom Nike Boston Red Sox Jerseys . Wilson threw for 121 yards and ran for two touchdowns, leading Seattle to scores on all four of his possessions as the Seahawks beat the San Diego Chargers 41-14 on Friday night. "I definitely believe we can be that explosive," Wilson said. "It starts first of all with the offensive line and how well theyre doing ... but then you think about our receivers and we have so many talented receivers." Wilson did a little of everything. He was pressured on the first snap of the game and avoided it to complete a pass. He scrambled when the pressure created clear running lanes. He threw sharp passes to open receivers and he operated Seattles offence with an efficiency missing in its preseason opener at Denver. Wilson completed 11 of 13 passes, and connected on his first eight attempts. He ran for another 31 yards as Seattle finished the first half with 260 yards of offence, 255 of those with Wilson at quarterback. Wilson was the first act. Terrelle Pryor and B.J. Daniels added their own chapters on a night Seattles quarterbacks combined for four touchdowns rushing. Pryor got an extended look in the competition to back up Wilson and showed why Seattle is so enticed. Pryor was 1 of 4 passing, but ran away from San Diegos defence on a 44-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. Daniels added a 6-yard TD run. Marshawn Lynch made his preseason debut for all of two plays before giving way to backups Robert Turbin and Christine Michael. Lynch held out of the first week of training camp and did not touch the ball in his two snaps. Seattle did get some of its other stars involved, including Percy Harvin, who had four receptions for 31 yards after catching five passes all of last season. Turbin finished with 81 yards on 12 carries. He showed open-field speed cutting back on the defence and racing for 47 yards on one carry, and displayed power bulling in for a 1-yard touchdown. "The offence as a whole probably made some mistakes but I think overall we did well," Turbin said. "It was continuing to get better and continuing to be disciplined as a runner. Its not always going to be daylight. Sometimes you have to create some." San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers played just one series before handing off to Kellen Clemens. San Diego kept most of its starting offence on the field with Clemens, but the Chargers could manage only 42 yards against Seattles defensive starters, 37 of those coming on the one drive Rivers led. "There are some run-game things Im still working through, some checks, that I know are going to come out today. Still some things that we can improve on in the pass game, me specifically," Clemens said. Just when it seemed Wilsons night should be done, he took one more series as the Seahawks worked on their hurry-up offence. Harvin said that wasnt the plan. Seattles starters were supposed to be done early in the second quarter. The result: Wilson took Seattle 67 yards in under 4 minutes, capping the drive with a 5-yard touchdown scramble. "We told Coach we were in a rhythm and wanted to stay in there," Harvin said. The drive provided the only moment of apprehension for Seattle when Doug Baldwin was knocked out of the back of the end zone on a big hit from San Diego safety Darrell Stuckey. Baldwin was slow to get up, but was laughing on the sideline when Wilson scrambled for the TD and a 24-0 Seattle lead. Seattle also cleaned up its penalty problems from the preseason opener, when it was flagged 13 times, and was better on third down. The Seahawks were called for three penalties in the first half and were 5 of 6 on third downs. "That was about as much as we could hope for," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. NOTES: Seattle DE Michael Bennett did not play because of a tight hamstring. ... San Diego DT Sean Lissemore left in the first quarter with an ankle injury, but walked off the field without help. S Jahleel Addae also left with a hamstring injury. ... Seattle K Steven Hauschka made both his attempts including a 55-yarder in the third quarter. Custom Nike Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys .

As each game passes (each has played close with the exception of last night) it becomes clearer just how evenly matched these two teams are and how one mistake, or one bad inning, is likely to sway the result.TORONTO - Jermain Defoe is back in Toronto, but the question remains for how long. Is he here for the duration of his lucrative MLS contract with Toronto FC or is this just a stopover until the international transfer window reopens in January? The star striker flew in Monday after nursing a groin injury back home in England. He was met by club officials and will likely have a soft re-entry into club ranks with the team having a scheduled off day Tuesday. The 31-year-old England forward has missed 12 games this season through injury or suspension but still leads the team in scoring with 11 goals in 16 MLS contests. He has played 150 minutes with appearances in two of TFCs 11 league games since July 19. Toronto (10-11-7) hosts the Portland Timbers on Saturday but Defoe may be held back until the following weekend for an Oct. 4 game against the Galaxy in Los Angeles. Manager Greg Vanney has said he wont know how fit Defoe is until he sees him on the training pitch. Vanney has said Defoe is anxious to be back but the long-term forecast remains cloudy. Stories have swirled about Defoes future since manager Ryan Nelsen was fired Aug 31 and news that the club had turned down a franchise-record transfer fee for Defoe at the closing of the summer transfer window. Tim Leiweke, the outgoing CEOO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment who brought Defoe to Toronto, told a group of Ryerson MBA students recently that he does not expect Defoe to be back next season. Custom Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale. But no one has said anything concrete on the record. Back in England, the Daily Mirror reported on the weekend that West Ham and Queens Park Rangers both plan to go after Defoe when the transfer window reopens in January. A public poll on the English tabloids website had 85 per cent of respondents, as of late Monday afternoon, expecting Defoe to be back in January in the Premier League. Defoe is expected to talk publicly Wednesday for the first time since disappearing into an injury black hole. He has limited himself to two tweets in the interim, wishing his teammates good luck and saying he cant wait to get back to scoring goals. Defoe has missed the last five games since coming off in the 77rd minute of a 2-2 tie with the Chicago Fire on Aug 23. He was out the three games before the Chicago contest. Team officials said the injury problems were all related to the groin area, pointing to Defoes back-to back English and MLS campaigns. Should Defoe make his return in Los Angeles, he would have five regular-season games left to help Torontos playoff push. Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter ' ' '
