GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers will be out to prove Sunday that their 2-0 start is the real deal - while the San Diego Chargers want to show their 1-1 uninspiring start isn't.

The Chargers were a fashionable Super Bowl pick heading into the season, but have stumbled out of the gate under new coach Norv Turner.

The Packers are trying to keep their early success in perspective.

Quarterback Brett Favre says although the Packers are 2-0, there are 14 games left and no one should be making any reservations anywhere.

He says 2-0 means a good start - that's it, nothing more.

Even with the Chargers struggling, stopping running back LaDainian Tomlinson and tight end Antonio Gates will provide the best test yet for the Packers.

Linebacker Nick Barnett says the team's looking forward to playing the Chargers to see how the Packers can stack up.
