The Chargers coaching staff struggled with clock management once again, but clutch interceptions by safety Jahleel Addae and cornerback Michael Davis helped spur the Chargers to a 20-17 victory over the Falcons on Sunday afternoon inside SoFi Stadium.

Justin Herbert led the final drive, marching 49 yards in five plays before Michael Badgley kicked a game-winning 43-yard field goal. The rookie completed 36-of-44 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns with a single interception.

Running back Austin Ekeler finished with a team-high 79 yards on 15 carries while also leading the team with 67 receiving yards on nine receptions. Keenan Allen also collected nine catches that went for 52 yards and his eighth touchdown of the season.

Safety Rayshawn Jenkins joined Addae and Davis with an interception of Matt Ryan on the day. Defensive tackle Justin Jones and edge rusher Uchenna Nwosu had the Chargers’ two sacks and Kyzir White led the Bolts with seven total tackles.
