Packers streak snapped against Chargers

The Green Bay Packers' defense and offense never got rhythm despite playing in front of a virtual home crowd Sunday afternoon in its 26-11 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

 

The Packers' "bend but don't break" defense simply bent too much, giving up over 440 yards but was able to force the Chargers to kick field goals early. The Packers did not even get close enough to score until the closing moments of the third quarter when Mason Crosby drilled a 45-yard field goal. Former Badger Melvin Gordon scored a pair of touchdowns, including a one-yard score in the fourth quarter to put the game on ice. Aaron Rodgers was able to find Jamal Williams from 10 yards out in the fourth quarter for the Packers' only touchdown.

 

The Packers return home next Sunday to face the Carolina Panthers.
