Antonio Gates had three touchdown catches and the San Diego Chargers controlled the tempo to keep Seattle’s offense off the field and upset the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks 30-21 Sunday.
The defending Super Bowl champions looked in 2013 form when they took apart the Packers last week, something many around the NFL (especially the San Francisco 49ers can’t be happy about).

In addition to working on memorizing new plays, making improvements and focusing on their skill sets – these guys are also taking in nature. From the mountains to the sea, these teams weren’t just getting their workout on, they’re training in some of the most scenic places in the U.S.
