Cannot stop quick release throws of Phillip Rivers
Rivers set numerous Chargers records with his performance against the Packers.
He was 43 of 65 for 503 yards and two touchdowns with NO INTs. Rivers was able to control the game and the clock, possessing the ball 38:00. San Diego had an unheard of 32 first downs.
However, the Packers were able to get to and sack Rivers three times late in the game and held the Chargers to only two TDs on six Red Zone opportunities.
The Packers had no answer for Kennan Allen for Danny Woodhead but seemed to keep Antonio Gates in check.
Phillip Rivers may lead the NFL in passing yards but the Packers are undefeated and have the best record in the NFL at 6-0.
