INGLEWOOD (Calif.) -- Los Angeles Chargers fans waited for quarterback Justin Herbert's arm to air out and wide receiver Mike Williams, to bring it in. Just under 12 minutes remained in the second quarter. Herbert stepped back and let the ball fly into the arms wide open of Williams, who scored easily with a 72-yard touchdown.
After a missed extra point, the touchdown pass tied Herbert's longest career play. It put the Chargers up 13-10. Williams received his fifth touchdown reception of the season. This was equal to his total last year.
Herbert completed five of the 10 passes for 58 yards before the touchdown pass. Donald Parham Jr. was also a touchdown passer.
Williams and Herbert reunited again in the fourth quarter, when Herbert completed a 42-yard touchdown pass that gave the Chargers a 28 to 27 lead with 11 minutes remaining. The Chargers led 27-13 at one time, but it was the fifth lead change in the game. They scored 15 consecutive points.
