Chargers roll past Packers 26-11

Getty Images

There were a lot of Packers fans in the stands for Sunday’s game against the Chargers in Los Angeles, but that advantage didn’t help swing things in their team’s favor.

Green Bay got shut out in the first half of the game while picking up 50 net yards of offense and the Chargers never saw their lead drop below two scores on their way to a 26-11 win. That makes two wins in a row for the Chargers, who are now 4-5 and headed to Oakland for a meeting with the Raiders in Week 10.

Bringing the kind of rushing attack they had with them on Sunday would improve their chances of a road win. The Chargers had struggled on the ground in Melvin Gordon‘s first four games back from his holdout, but Gordon had 80 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries on Sunday. Austin Ekeler chipped in 70 yards on 12 carries to give the team its best rushing output of the season.

Philip Rivers was also on his game and ended the day 21-of-28 for 294 yards. His two biggest completions came to Mike Williams, who put up 111 yards on three catches.

The Packers offense didn’t generate any numbers that look quite so nice. They padded their stats a bit after going down 26-3 in the fourth quarter, but the end result was still just 184 yards. All in all, it was a performance that looked like their Week One snoozer and not any of their stronger performances in recent weeks.

They’ll be back in action against the Panthers for a true home game next Sunday and the hope will be that this was just a blip rather than a sign that things have gotten off track for Green Bay.

    Did the Vikings give up 400 yards of offense and the longest run in this NFL season to a Matt Moore led offense?
    _____________________________

    Did your Packers put up a total of three points prior to garbage time and lose by over two touchdowns to a 3-5 team? Did your “world class defense” (actually ranked 24th out of 32 NFL teams going into today) give up 443 yards to said 3-5 team?

  2. I thought the Packers were the best team in the league. I thought Erin Rodgers was the best QB ever.

  3. Great job by the chargers they started great, that new OC clearly made positive impact, The GB defense spent WAY too much time on the field, the LA pass rush caused havoc, which led to many of those penalties early which didnt allow them to get any rhythm. Hope this wakes up the Packers, and play better next week and get into the bye for much deserved break it stinks the Packers didnt add to their lead in the division, but fortunately they didnt lose any ground either.

    People can nitpick about which division team “lost worse” they all count the same, but I like GBs bounce back the best, I am interested to see how they will try to stop McCaffery next week.

  4. Phillip Rivers is the most up and down ,week to week ,back and forth ,quarterback in the history of the league !

  5. I don’t know why every team from here on out doesn’t run every play against the Packer’s d. Calling the Packer’s D soft is an insult to soft. (I k now their pass D is nothing special either)

    What happened to the green & mustard yellow juggernaut? No help from the refs today?

  7. The Packers were terrible on defense but they made up for that by being terrible on offense. I thought they’d win this game.

  8. At least they didn’t lose to a third string QB. 🤷‍♂️

    Still leading the NFC North.

  9. Its too bad the Packers were not able to pull off that trade for le’veon bell. They are now stuck with Aaron Jones and they know it. It more likely they will get play like today from him than not

  10. Viking fans gotta be happy with the out come of this game and I guess when your favorite team is 6-3 with two losses coming to back up QBs you feel the need to find some sort of silver lining, and just like their QB, they’re trying.

  11. give it up to the chargers they kicked butt today in all aspects .. funny seeing viking fans on here refs handed you the game and you still lost go away queens

    But all the packer fans said they were going to win this game

    But all the Vikings fans said they were going today

  13. Remember at the beginning of the season when Packer fans thought they had a good D. They were puffing out their chest like it was their accomplishment. LOL
    That D will be lucky to finish out of the bottom 5.

  14. Packers apparently thought they were taking a bye week trip to Disneyland. Soundly beaten in every way possible on a day where they could have opened up a huge division lead.
    Congrats to the Chargers.

  15. Wait a second Aaron is the BEST QUARTERBACK that’s ever put a uniform on he can’t lose can he? Only 11 points from the greatest of the greatest? Come on man this has to be a mistake

  16. Enjoyed watching every minute of this game. Damn the packers get away with blatant holding on every play. They’re the only entitled team in the league but the refs couldn’t hand them the game today. Erin and the ‘ref assisted’ offense generated a whole 3 points until they got the garbage touchdown in the end. I noticed the stupid look on his face after the game wasn’t quite as smug as normal. Glad I set the DVR. I think I’m going to watch it again.

  17. Let’s see,
    Scheduled to play a 3-5 team- check
    Airline reservations done-check
    Bus ride to hotel-check
    Food/accommodations-check
    What did we forget? ????
    Scheduling the correct officiating crew for the advantageous calls-doh!

    Packers catch a break as entire North Division lost today.

    YUP,but the 2 best games VIKES/CHIEFS , LIONS/RAIDERS at least they scored points and kept it close.
    not get there kiesters steam rolled .

  19. Its nice to see that delay of game penalties do not apply to Green Bay. Sit down sometime and watch just how often Rodgers is snapping the ball with zero seconds on the playclock.

  20. Best part of game was Romo up and down broadcast of the game. First GB did not have a chance to come back then well the game is not over bla bla bla. SD outplayed GB all day get that ROMO.

  21. Yawner! You all see what happens when you take the Lamblow out of the Packers. No officials to give them a cake wall.
    PS….got all out lucky against the Chiefs last week.
    Erin, all he did was throw it to a back pylon last week and everyone thought it was so cute.
    Lions and Vikings got handed embarrassing losses by the zebras in Lamblow. Wow take them out of their environment and you see what happens.
    Sorry ROMO how embarrassing when Erin ran that 2pnt. Conversion in you started to Pony up again.
    Good Gravy! This guy aint even in the top 25 of all time. Sooooo overrated it is sick!

  22. Well, that was a stinker. With all the new stuff and the accompanying uncertainties at the beginning of the season, if somebody had told me the Packers would be 7-2, alone in first place in the division, and 3-0 within the division, I’d have loved it.

    Well, I still love it.

  23. Not sure who’s more delusional those just wait till next year Cowboys fans or the cottage cheese lovers in Green Bay. Their defense is just like their cheese – Full of holes

    At the end of the night…the majority of you know you secretly wish you had Rodgers as your QB and the Packs’ 7-2 record. Truth…lol!
    __
    Yeah sure, everyone wants to be you. Wow the arrogance. No wonder every other nfl fan base hates Packer fans.

  26. Look, the Vikings didn’t play well today. But the Packer fans really need to zip it and stay silent. Their team was absolutely brutal against a 3-5 team today. That score doesn’t do justice to how bad Rodgers and the Packers played today. Worst of the day.

    I just saw there was an amber alert for the packers offense.
    ______________

    They should have used the defenses aggression like the Vikings do and called 20-30 screen passes.

  28. Congrats to Chargers and their fans. Bosa and Engram were a two-man wrecking crew. Pack’s offense was manhandled for well into the second half. The defense, while opportunistic, wasn’t so today and their need in next year’s draft includes a run stuffing tackle and middle LB. But that is then and this is now. Still a great opportunity to right the ship, win the division and get to the playoffs. That scenario would be a big plus for first year head coach, LaFleur and the team. Go Pack!

    Opportunity exists just as well for the Vikings.
    See you all at the end of the year, at the best stadium in the world. #nosplinters

    Thinking they would go 12-4 or 11-5…..ya that what their fans were saying.

    So Packer fans didn’t say they would got 15-1? Apparently I am missing your point of this post.

  31. How many Packer fans does it take to replace a light bulb? Answer: 100…one to actually replace the bulb and 99 to sit around and reminisce about how great the old bulb was.

  32. Opportunity exists just as well for the Vikings.
    See you all at the end of the year, at the best stadium in the world. #nosplinters

    True that, Chris. I expect that game to decide the division winner. But Lambeau doesn't give up splinters to the backside….just frostbite.

    13-0, 21-16, 7–2

    These are fun numbers.

    The best one is 0-59.
    —————————————

    Typical Packer fan when they lose. All teary eyed with their blanket staring at their Erin Rodgers life size poster.

  34. Packer haters come out in droves when they lose. So far it’s only been twice this year … your team should be so lucky. Not a huge issue today as Packers, Vikings, Lions, Bears all lose. Nothing changes from last week no harm no foul.

  35. You all are like those Queen fans a few years back. Spewed so much hatred at the Pack and Favre for years until he jumped ship. See how quickly they changed their tune…pretty pathetic really. You all are just bitter cause you’re team ain’t relevant…lol!

    Yes GB laid an egg, and while the Chargers are 4-5 after today, they haven’t lost a game by more than 7 points this season, they have been in the thick of them, and have pro bowlers ALL over the field, and new OC calling plays so maybe what they were looking at on film vs. what was seen today were two COMPLETELY different things… so the Packers played like crap and know they did EVERYTHING wrong from penalties to pass protection to not blocking on special teams, while the Vikings grinded it out and lose a close against a good team with a back up QB, hoping Cousins earns his money one of these days… who do you feel is more likely to bounce back moving forward?

  37. I should be more upset Minnesota blew a chance to close on the division lead, but I’m too busy laughing. I’ve actually grown to admire the toughness displayed by this previously wimpy GB squad, but the their non-stop, obsessed, fight picking trolls make this embarrassing loss a treat.

    Saints and Niners the class of the NFC right now. Other than Seattle,. not sure who can beat either of them.

  38. Was a bad time for the Chargers to change their offensive coordinator…for GB. GB defense had no answer for them all day. The offense shot itself in the foot way too much early on and never really got comfortable till garbage time.

    I was afraid that the offense would lose its mojo trying to reintegrate Davante Adams into the lineup. Not sure if that was the case here or not but credit to LAs defense for shutting the offense down.

    Tough game, glad it’s over. If they stink it up again next week against the Panthers then maybe it’s time to start worrying.

    I’m hoping it was a combination of factors like a new OC for the Chargers, the change in the game start time and possible jet lag. Guess we will find out what it all means next week and beyond.

  39. Oh, by the way, the Chargers won the game, I think. Yet we’re debating GB and Minn. Good grief, are Charger victories that common that nothing more be said about them?

  40. LAC has some powerful weapons on offense, not surprised at all. What I am surprised with is how poor GB played. I’ll admit, I’m totally happy they lost, but they should have put up a fight. Chargers were not a well-rounded, solid team. So this is as bad as watching my Pats get smashed tonight.

    Oh well. On to #7.

  41. It’s quite funny to see GB fans fumbling their words… you guys had it coming. Some advice… talk after not before your team plays. You get a much better perspective that way.

  42. Rodgers had a great game last week and everyone said to watch out because Rodgers is back. You can’t take one game and d that…but media is media and they need to talk about something. Packers are always a dangerous team but this year you never know what you’re going to get.

  43. Was that the worse loss of any team this season? If not I am had pressed to think of another
    ————————————————————————————————————————–
    Pats over Dolphins 43-0 I think was the worst of this season so far
