The Chargers were defeated by the Packers, 23-20.
To recap the Week 11 loss, here is everything to know.
The Chargers failed to score on the final drive. Quentin Johnston’s drop down the sideline would’ve at least gotten them in the field goal range, but it looked like he had room to score a touchdown to win the game.
- The Chargers had seven dropped passes.
- Jordan Love threw for a career-high 322 passing yards.
- The Packers were 7-of-14 on third down.
- The Chargers were 1-of-4 in the red zone.
- Keenan Allen surpassed 1,000 receiving yards on the season.
