On facing the Chargers…

“Well, it was a big matchup today against a really good team. We’ve been doing really well. We gave them all the respect, thinking that they could play good football, and they did. … We gave them too much against a good team. And when we give them the turnover for the touchdown, that really winds up being the difference in the game. … It was going to be dramatic, but we’re OK about that.” – Head Coach Pete Carroll

“That’s a great football team and we fought back. We fought back and we played in it and we kind of hurt ourselves a bit. … We went back out there and went all the way down there until the last play of the game against a championship caliber football team. We believe we’re a championship caliber football team too. We knew it was going to be a long, hard fight. They’ve been playing great, we’ve been playing great. We didn’t expect it to be easy.” – QB Russell Wilson

“Close battle. It’s heartbreaking, especially at home. We’ve got to do better. … I think that’s an excellent football team we just went up against so there’s nothing for us to be down about.” – WR Doug Baldwin

“Well, we went against these guys in the preseason so we kind of knew what they were about, what kind of matchups we were going to get. Like I said, you’ve got to give them credit. They’ve got a good defense too…” – WR Jaron Brown

“They did a good job of mixing things up and kind of keeping us on our heels a bit. That’s a great team we played – defensively, offensively.” – TE Nick Vannett

“I feel like we’ve been tested, that is a good team over there. We knew it was going to be a hard-fought game. We knew we were really going to have to be on our game to stop them.” – LB Bobby Wagner

On Philip Rivers…

“He’s a good quarterback. He’s very, very smart and talks a lot of trash. He came out and having (Defensive Coordinator) Gus (Bradley) over there definitely helps him to understand what we have going.” – LB Bobby Wagner

On Desmond King’s interception…

“(Wilson) just thought he had it. He was right on rhythm and went for it and it was a really good play by their guy.” – Head Coach Pete Carroll

“He made a good play. I made a bad read. He bolted underneath of it and made a good play.” – QB Russell Wilson

On the final play…

“It was really close. We had a chance but it didn’t work. … I knew it was a tight window and we tried to get it in there. I think it maybe got tipped a hair a little bit. It was tough.” – QB Russell Wilson
