Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (groin), who did not play on Sunday, was limited in a light practice on Monday.

Any given Sunday…. but this Sunday proved a predictable loss for the San Diego Chargers against the undefeated Green Bay Packers with the unflappable Aaron Rodgers at the helm. Despite a respectable rally; San Diego still could not close the deal and the struggling Philip Rivers threw his 3rd interception; clinching the win for Green Bay.

Chargers cornerback Antoine Cason was overmatched in the red zone against 6-foot-5 wide receiver Plaxico Burress of the New York Jets. He gave up three touchdowns inside the 10-yard line. He also missed an open-field tackle early in the game on a screen catch.
