In a game that will likely determine if there is anything to this season for the Los Angeles Chargers, the Green Bay Packers come into Dignity Health Sports Complex for a Week 9 clash.

The Chargers improved their record to 3-5 with a win over the Chicago Bears last week, but it was far from a great performance. They will need to play much better football if they are to defeat the 7-1 Green Bay Packers, one of the best teams in the league.

Aaron Rodgers is playing at an MVP level and thus far, new head coach Matt LaFleur seems to be a great fit. The Chargers will have their work cut out for them.

Top storylines 

  • The biggest thing to keep an eye on in this game is new offensive coordinator Shane Steichen and how things will look on offense following the dismissal of Ken Whisenhunt.
  • The Chargers have beaten the Packers just one time ever. That was 35 years ago.
  • Michael Badgley will kick for the first time this year. How will he do following a tough groin injury?

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:25 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on CBS. Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will have the call.
