The Green Bay Packers defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 23-20 on Sunday, with Jordan Love throwing for 322 yards. He found Romeo Doubs for a 24-yard touchdown with 2:33 remaining. It was his first win as a starter in place of Aaron Rodgers, who was sidelined with COVID-19. Love became the first Packer to throw for more than 300 yards since Rodgers on Dec. 12, 2021. Love’s other touchdown pass was a 11-yarder to Christian Watson in the third quarter.
The win came with major blows for both teams: Joey Bosa was carted off the field with a foot injury for the Chargers and Aaron Jones was carted off with a shoulder injury for the Packers.
Justin Herbert threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Keenan Allen to give the Chargers a 20-16 lead with 5:24 remaining. Love found Dontayvion Wicks for a 35-yard gain two plays later, and then hit Doubs for the game-winning touchdown. The Chargers had a final chance, but Kenny Clark batted down a pass by Herbert on fourth-and-1 from the Los Angeles 35 to seal the game.
Herbert was 21 of 36 for 260 yards with two touchdowns: he connected with Stone Smartt for a 51-yard score in the second quarter.
