NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Chargers fans!

Happy #VictoryMonday to you all!

The Chargers pulled out a 34-24 victory over the Texans in Houston in what was finally the big breakout game we’ve all been waiting for from Austin Ekeler. Justin Herbert looked about as normal as ever since his initial rib injury happened over 18 days ago as he threw for 340 yards and a pair of scores.

The defense was incredibly stout (for a half) and came up big when the Chargers needed to finally shut down the Texans offense at the end.

No matter how it looked, let’s enjoy this victory. The Bolts are 2-2 before heading to Cleveland in week five.
