Chargers: Reason they lose

The Chargers simply cannot give the ball away on Sunday. Do it once, and the momentum can swing way too far in favor of the visiting team.

Rivers has turned the ball over in six out of eight games to open the season, with a total of nine turnovers from fumbles and interceptions.

Rodgers has four interceptions in his last 24 games. Odds are, he’s not going to lose the game for the Packers. Rivers, Melvin Gordon, and Austin Ekeler can’t be the reason they lose this game.

The Chargers can absolutely afford to be aggressive, and at 3-5 facing their most important test of the season, they should try everything they can to attack and push the ball down the field…within reason. Attack with purpose and precision, and they may just pull off the win.

Chargers: Reason they win

Joey Bosa is head hunting after the loss to the Tennessee Titans, and he’s got his eyes on taking down one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in football this Sunday.

Bosa has 14 pressures, four sacks, and nine run stops over his past two games, according to Pro Football Focus. If the Chargers want to take down Rodgers and the Packers, they will literally need Bosa to take down Rodgers and the Packers. Go get that money No. 97.
