1. Rodgers goes for third straight game with 300 yards, 3 TDs

Despite what some might call a slow start, Aaron Rodgers has been on fire this season as a whole. Through eight games, the veteran signal-caller has put up MVP-caliber numbers with 2,324 yards, 16 touchdowns and only two interceptions on the year. On top of that, Rodgers also has a rushing touchdown. But even his numbers in total don’t do how dominant he’s been over the last two weeks justice.

Two weeks ago against the Raiders, Rodgers was magnificent as he went 25-of-31 for 429 yards and five touchdowns through the air, adding his lone rushing score of the year as well. He followed that up against the Chiefs last week with a 23-of-33 for 305 yards and three touchdowns showing. Oh, and he hasn’t thrown an interception over the past two weeks either.

Of the things that the Chargers have actually done well this season, their passing defense has been solid. That won’t matter against Rodgers, however. He’s clearly locked in right now, is getting his No. 1 receiver back and has started to gel with Matt LaFleur. That’s all bad news for the Bolts on Sunday.

Rodgers is going to stay on his MVP tear on Sunday in Carson, dicing up the Chargers secondary — specifically with Adams and his running backs out of the backfield. After 60 minutes and in a resounding victory, the star quarterback will have his third consecutive game with at least 300 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
