Chargers 41 Packers 14
The Chargers, the laughingstock of the league last year, continue their hot start to the new season.
The Packers had a good start as Garrard hit former Charger Greg Jennings for a 30 yard td to take the early lead. Matt Ryan led his group down the field vs a blitz heavy Packer D, and hit Boutte for a 12 yard td pass.
The Charger D forced the Packers to punt on their second possession, and Ryan went back to work. He led them inside the redzone, where Boutte scored again, this time on an 11 yard run. After another Packer punt, Ryan found Hester deep for a 57 yard td to take a 21-7 lead at half.
The 3rd quarter opened with a bang, as Brandon Boutte ran 73 yards for his 2nd rushing td of the day. After a pair of Nate Kaeding field goals, Garrard got back on track and found Dustin Keller for a 58 yard td. The Chargers responded on their first play of the ensuing drive, as it was Boutte again taking it to the house, courtesy of a 72 yard run. That would finish out the scoring in this one, and the Chargers jump out to a 3-0 start.
Former Packer Jeremy Ware had a big game vs his former club, with 3 tackles, 1 sack, 1 int, and 1 forced fumble. The Charger D in general did a great job, racking up 6 sacks and 3 picks.
