Have you seen the Chargers' injury list? Only six days removed from a painful loss to the Chiefs, they are one beaten-up team. The Packers, meanwhile, couldn't be more well-rested coming off their bye. And at the end of the afternoon Sunday, I see their healthier bodies making a big difference in what I suspect could be a high-scoring affair that will keep both defenses breathing heavily.

I can't figure out Philip Rivers this year. He looks like a different guy. Something tells me he will come up with a good game matched up against Aaron Rodgers. But the Packers just seem to have a few more live bullets at their disposal. I could see it being Jordy Nelson's turn for a big game among the Green Bay receivers. I am also predicting Packers CB Tramon Williams makes his first interception of the year at a key moment.

Prediction: Packers 35, Chargers 30
