151014-mccoy-cc-950GREEN BAY — The Chargers are on a short week, coming off a heartbreaking defeat and preparing to play an undefeated Packers team. Times are tough for the team from San Diego.

“You have to have a short memory,” Chargers Head Coach Mike McCoy said. “Every loss is tough, but we’ve moved on and put it behind us. We’re playing against a very good football team, obviously, this week.

“I think we’ve handled it the right way. We had a great practice today. There’s one less day to think about it, so I guess it helps in that way.”

Making matters even more difficult for the Chargers is the Packers’ sharp focus on improving their offensive performance over last Sunday’s effort against the Rams. The Chargers aren’t likely to catch the Packers looking ahead to their bye week.

The Rams have a very good defense, great front and good secondary. The Packers offense speaks for itself. It’s not just one game. There’s a tradition there, a way they play the game there that’s very efficient both running and throwing the football,” McCoy told Packers media on Wednesday.

Green Bay’s defense is on a sacks frenzy. The Packers are second in the league in sacks with 20 and have recorded 16 in the last three games. San Diego lists five offensive linemen on its injury report.

“They play a number of different players. They’re very creative. Guys win their one-on-one matchups,” McCoy said of the Packers’ pass rush.
