Instant analysis of Chargers' 26-11 victory over Packers

Report Packers didn't put in claim for WR Josh Gordon

Instead, even with an early departure to Southern California on Friday, the Packers put together their worst offensive performance of the season in a 26-11 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, whose fans were outnumbered in their building.

Well, maybe the Green Bay Packers should dissect what went wrong and then throw the tape in the trash. "We'll regroup, go back home and play another good team [Carolina] before the bye".

Rodgers was 23 of 35 for 161 yards as the Packers (7-2) had their four-game winning streak snapped.

"This was a good slice of humble pie for us".

The Packers were able to finally get into the end zone in the fourth quarter but it was much too little and far too late.

This result should give Chargers fans plenty to be excited about as the team improves to 4-5 on the season. Los Angeles didn't have a three-and-out on any of its nine possessions and only had to punt once. He has been helped immensely by an excellent season from running back Aaron Jones, who leads a Packers backfield that is averaging over 101 yards rushing per game. Gordon, who came in averaging only 2.5 yards per carry, had 80 yards on 20 carries and Austin Ekeler added 12 carries for 70 yards.

"We established the run and committed to it". "Shane did an outstanding job".

"I don't think it was complacency at all", Rodgers said. "Everyone stepped up and did what they had to do". "We got a chance to actually try to seal the game with the run, so I was definitely excited about that".

Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram sacks Packers quarter Aaron Rodgers. Bosa has 5 1/2 sacks in his past three games. "We've got to get back to protecting and throwing the ball out in time and being accurate", said Rodgers, who completed 23 of 35 passes. Through three quarters, he had managed just 61 passing yards. For the game, the Packers had just 184 yards of total offense and were just 2-for-10 on third-down conversions.

Badgley, in his first game of the season after sitting out eight weeks because of a groin injury, converted field goals of 29, 40 and 34 yards. The Chargers gained 250 yards in the first half and had a pair of scoring drives that started inside their 10.

"Offensively, there was no rhythm whatsoever", Packers coach Matt LaFleur said.

The kick got the Packers on the scoreboard, but accounted for little else as the Chargers dominated both sides of the ball in one of the most surprising scores of the National Football League season.

In other games on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts were left with a potential quarterback crisis after Jacoby Brissett suffered a knee injury in a 26-24 defeat at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Chargers are averaging 19.6 points a game, and they're giving up over 340 yards a game on defense. So let's take a look at how everyone has the Green Bay Packers faring and how the game will play out.

A Chargers pass rush led by Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa set the tone for the game that saw Rodgers under regular pressure and the Packers playing in long down-and-distance situations.
