Chargers’ comeback falls short in 27-20 loss to Packers
GREEN BAY, Wisc. — Despite career days from Philip Rivers and Keenan Allen, the Chargers fell 27-20 to the Packers on the road Sunday afternoon.
The Chargers had first-and-goal on the 3-yard line with 33 seconds remaining, but the Green Bay defense held firm to preserve the win. San Diego fell to 2-4 with the loss, while the Packers moved to 6-0, keeping their perfect season alive.
Rivers threw for a career-high 503 yards in the loss, including 77 on the final drive. He also tossed a pair of touchdowns with no interceptions.
Keenan Allen hauled in 14 catches — one off the franchise’s single-game record he already shares with Kellen Winslow — for 157 yards before leaving the game with an injury in the third quarter.
Next week the Chargers host the Oakland Raiders (2-3). Kickoff is slated for 1:05 p.m.
