PREDICTION: SEATTLE , LA CHARGERS

Oddsmakers currently have the SEATTLE listed as -1 point favorites versus the LA CHARGERS, while the game’s total is sitting at 48.

Philip Rivers will make his 200th consecutive regular-season start when he leads the Los Angeles Chargers into battle against the host Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Rivers will become only the fourth quarterback to reach the milestone, joining Brett Favre (297), Eli Manning (210) and Peyton Manning (208).

Rivers, who turns 37 next month, has been Mr. Reliable since becoming the Chargers’ starter in 2006 and takes pride in his ability to answer the bell on game days. “I think there is a small element of toughness involved, but then again, shoot, lots of prayers for me from many people on Sundays and guys’ protection that allows me to be out there each and every week, whether dealing with minor things or big things,” Rivers told reporters. “Then just that competitiveness to want to be out there and play every week, and I have that same passion in this 200th one that I had in the first one. That’s what excites me for the next handful of years.” Seattle is on a hot streak with four victories in five games after getting off to a slow start. Russell Wilson is performing well with three touchdown passes in each of his past three contests.

ABOUT THE CHARGERS (5-2): Rivers has passed for 2,008 yards and 17 touchdowns against three interceptions this season while helping the offense average 27.9 points. The Chargers are hoping to have running back Melvin Gordon (466 yards, six touchdowns) back on the field after he missed a win over Tennessee due to a hamstring injury and also had a bye week to recuperate. Defensive end Joey Bosa (foot) still isn’t ready to make his season debut for a unit that is allowing 23.3 points per game.

ABOUT THE SEAHAWKS (4-3): Wilson, who has thrown for 1,556 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions, earned a perfect quarterback rating (158.3) in last week’s 28-14 win over Detroit as he completed 14-of-17 passes for 248 yards. The running game ranks third in the NFL with an average of 137.4 yards as Chris Carson (457 yards) has stepped up as the primary ball carrier by topping 100 yards in three of his last four games. Defensive end Frank Clark has registered six sacks to help a unit that ranks fifth in total defense (327.3 yards per game) and is tied for third in takeaways (16).

EXTRA POINTS

1. Rivers passed for 455 yards in his last visit to Seattle in 2010 – a 27-20 loss.

2. Seattle DE Rasheem Green (ankle) is expected to play after missing the last four games.

3. Chargers WR Keenan Allen (41 receptions) has made just one touchdown catch, with his longest gain being for 25 yards.

PREDICTION: Seahawks 27, Chargers 24
