The Chargers are coming off a tough Monday night loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers giving up a 1-yard TD run in the last play of the game. They are now behind the 8-ball, big time, in the AFC West since the Broncos are sitting at 5-0 in the division.
Can the Packers be beat? They are 5-0 and they beat the Rams last week and in their last 4 games they have won by double-digits.
No wonder, they are a 10-point betting favorite at home facing the Chargers, who have lost 3 of their last 4 games.
Not only are the Packers 5-0 this season, but they have covered the spread in every game.
San Diego Chargers
Phillip Rivers is having another big season and he leads the NFL in passing yards. He has a great WR corps led by emerging star Keenan Allen and Antonio Games is back, but the QB is not getting much help from the rushing offense.
They failed to rush for over 70 yards in the loss to the Steelers and lead RB Melvin Gordon has 270 yards through 5 games and he is only averaging 3.8 yards per carry.
This match up on defense is a good one for the Packers, as they rank 6th in the league in pass defense and only 29th in rushing defense.
If Gordon cannot help Rivers out he will have to have a HUGE game and get some help from his defense, which is a tall task facing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Lambeau Field.
Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers passed for 241 yards in the Packers last game a 24-10 win over the Rams and while he did have 2 TD he was picked off twice, which snapped his streak of 587 passes without an INT. He has a great WR corps, even without Jordy Nelson, and will be facing a San Diego pass defense 13th in the league.
Getting to Rodgers will be key for the Chargers’ pass rush, but they only have 8 sacks through 5 games.
Where the Chargers have struggled this season on defense is against the run, as their rushing D only ranks 30th in the league. Packers’ RB Eddie Lacy struggled in the Rams win, but you can bet the Chargers will get a heavy dose of him in this game, as they really struggled against the run in the loss to Pittsburgh.
The Chargers have failed to cover the spread in their last 4 games facing a team that has a winning record.
