In what has to have been the wildest fourth quarter that anyone has seen in years, the LA Chargers and Cleveland Browns combined for six touchdowns. Overall, both offenses combined for over 1,000 yards throughout Sunday’s game.
In the end, however, it was the Chargers that prevailed 47-42 thanks to the arm of Justin Herbert and the incredible late-game decision-making by Austin Ekeler.
Herbert ended the game without a turnover for the third week in a row and finished with 398 yards, four passing touchdowns, 29 yards rushing, and one score on the ground. Ekeler came alive in the second half with two touchdowns to go with 66 rushing yards. He also chipped in 53 yards through the air with another score.
Mike Williams also exploded for 165 yards and two long touchdowns on a game-high 16 targets.
Derwin James recorded a career-high 17 tackles and a sack of Mayfield. Drue Tranquill also recorded double-digit tackles with 11.
The Chargers travel to Baltimore next week to face the 3-1 Ravens (pending their Monday Night Football game against the Colts).
