Coming off a stunning "walk-off" loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the San Diego Chargers will have their hands full on Sunday as they face the undefeated Green Bay Packers.

Philip Rivers knows that they must look forward and forget the loss on Monday night, telling reporters that the Packers will bury them if they aren’t ready Sunday.

Meanwhile, on the Packers’ end, being undefeated means nothing. Green Bay is trying to improve after a rough offensive week, despite a 24-10 win over the Rams and a 5-0 start. Though the offense is always a threat with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, Philip Rivers will face a tough Packers secondary that has been thriving this season.

Antonio Gates returned from his four-game suspension Monday night and was able to reach a career milestone only eight other players have ever achieved. Gates became the ninth player in NFL history, and only the second tight end, to reach 100 career receiving touchdowns. Congrats, Antonio!

For some odd reason, Twitter thought Philip Rivers sucker punched a bird in the middle of the Steelers-Chargers game on Monday night. We’re happy to report it was just a glove.

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is having a homecoming on Sunday, playing in Wisconsin as a visitor for the first time in his career.

Keenan Allen’s having a good year, but his mouth is having a better one…
