Green Bay Packers standout cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday, which is a great development for the Packers’ 11th-ranked defense. That defense will be tasked with slowing a potent Los Angeles Chargers offense.
While Green Bay can keep it interesting, it’s hard to envision the Packers completely shutting down Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, Austin Ekeler and Co. Last week, the Chargers racked up 38 points against a Detroit Lions defense that is pretty much on par with Green Bay’s.
Alexander, Rashan Gary (shoulder) and Quay Walker (groin) are all questionable, and if any miss time, L.A. could have an easier time offensively. Allen is dealing with an AC joint sprain but has stated that he will play.
We like the over at its current line because of Los Angeles’ lackluster pass defense. No team has allowed more passing yards per game this season.
While Packers quarterback Jordan Love has had his fair share of struggles this season, he seemed to form a real deep-ball connection with Jayden Reed and Romeo Doubs last week. If he can hit a few chunk plays against L.A.—and he should—this could turn into a fun offensive battle.
Regardless of how fun this one ultimately ends up being, a Chargers defense allowing an average of just under 24 points per game make the over the enticing play.
