Packers shocked by the Chargers, lose second game of the season 26-11

In Davante Adam’s first game back after nursing a turf toe injury, the Packers offense failed to get any traction as the Chargers defense dominated in a 26 to 11 win.

After two consecutive weeks of offensive fireworks from the Packers, the Bolts defense held the Packers offense to just 184 total yards and a single touchdown.

A big reason for that was the Chargers consistent and relentless pass rush on Aaron Rodgers who put up his worst stat line of the season going 23/35 for 161 yards and a touchdown.

Both teams started the game slow, with the Chargers getting only slightly more productivity before the half as their kicker Michael Badgley converted on his three first half field goal attempts, (29,40 and 34), to put L.A. up 9-0 at the half.

The Chargers would continue the field goal assault with Badgley hitting his fourth attempt, from 43 yards away, early in the third quarter to go up 12-0.

The field goals stopped there though as Phillip Rivers, who finished 21 of 28 for 294 yards with no touchdowns, would lead two touchdown drives both culminating in Melvin Gordon one yard touchdown plunges.

The Packers would split the two scoring drives with a Mason Crosby 54 yard field goal, but still found themselves trailing 26-3 mid-way through the fourth.

Rodgers tried to work his magic, tossing his lone touchdown pass to Jamaal Williams from 10 yards out and converting on the ensuing two-point conversion.

However, it would prove to be too little too late as the Chargers hold on to win 26-11 handing the Packers their second loss of the season.

The Packers will try to rebound next week back home against the surging Carolina Panthers.
