Five Lessons from the Packers Game - Ricky Henne
What Rivers did from an individual standpoint Sunday was unlike anything ever seen before from a Chargers quarterback as he set franchise records in completions (43), attempts (65) and passing yards (503).

SD-GB Grades: Career days from Rivers and Allen not enough - Michael Renner
The Chargers front seven continues to be completely ineffective against both the run and pass. On the defensive line, not a single player had a pass rush grade of +1.0 or higher. One has to wonder how much more will they need to see from Donald Butler (-3.8) until they decide to go with someone else at inside linebacker. On Sunday, he was a complete non-factor, collecting just one stop in 56 snaps. He has graded negatively overall in every single game this year.

Mike McCoy's Message to Melvin Gordon - Ricky Henne
"We’ve got to eliminate (the fumbles).  We told him today (and) we told him yesterday during the game what he’s got to do.  He can’t put the ball on the ground."

Philip Rivers' quick release stuns, amazes Packers - Bob McGinn (h/t RubenJay)
"People say Aaron's got a quick release," guard T.J. Lang said. "I don't think anybody has a quicker release than that guy. He played a hell of a game."

Audibles at the Line: Week 6 - Andrew Potter
Great move by Mike McCoy, who has the Chargers go for it on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line with 2 seconds left in the second quarter, down 17-3. You aren't going to beat the Packers with field goals, especially on the road. The gambit works with a touchdown pass to Dontrelle Inman.
