L, 26-11 @ Chargers
Don’t get us wrong, the Packers are still one of the NFL’s elite teams in the league right now. One loss in the afternoon slate of games on the West Coast won’t change that.

But, boy. It was ugly for Green Bay.
The Chargers pass rush flustered Aaron Rodgers for most of the afternoon, limiting him to a pedestrian line of 161 yards, a touchdown and a passer rating of 85.5. In total, the Packers managed only 184 yards of total offense and went just 2-of-10 on third downs.
Those numbers are uncharacteristic, for sure.
Meanwhile, Green Bay’s usually stout defense allowed Mike Williams a huge game, while Philip Rivers enjoyed some excellent numbers through the air: 21-of-28 for 294 yards and a 108.3 passer rating.
The Packers will figure out how to right the ship before what could be an exciting Week 10 contest against the visiting Panthers.
