Here are some of the numbers that helped define the Packers 26-11 road loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, November 3.
- The 26-11 score was only the second time that score had ended an NFL regular season game. The other time was on November 26, 2017 when the Jets defeated the Texans 26-11.
- The Packers scored exactly 11 points for only the second time in their history. The other time? A 35-11 loss to the Detroit Lions on December 31, 2017.
- Playing on the west coast has not been good for the Packers (they have an upcoming road game in California against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, Nov. 24) in the past few years. The Pack is 2-6 in games played in the Pacific Time Zone since 2012.
- This game against the Chargers was a 3:25 p.m. start. Green Bay is 6-6 in their last 12 games played with a mid-afternoon Sunday kickoff.
- Green Bay ended their matchups against the AFC West this season with a 3-1 record. They are 16-4 versus the AFC West since 2003. The only 4-0 record against the AFC West during that time was in 2007.
- Despite the loss to the Chargers, the Packers still hold a 10-2 record against the Chargers in their history. That 10-2 record (.833 winning percentage) is still the best against any of the other 31 current NFL franchises.
- The Packers won the coin toss. They are, however, only 6-14 (.300) in their last 20 road games when they win the opening coin toss, including losing eight of their last nine.
- The Chargers scored first in the game. The Packers are only 13-22 (.371) since 2015 in games where the opponents score first in the contest.

- With a win last week in Kansas City, the Packers were looking to win back-to-back road games. With the loss, Green Bay has not won road games in consecutive weeks since 2012 when they defeated the Texans and Rams in road games in consecutive weeks.
- The Chargers had a 19-3 lead going into the fourth quarter. Green Bay is now 9-83 (.098) since 1966 in games where they have three or fewer points going into the fourth quarter.
