The Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans were locked in a defensive battle their entire game, and it was up to Justin Herbert to come through in the clutch.
Herbert led a six-play, 52-yard drive with 44 seconds left to get the team into field-goal range. He avoided the pressure and threw a 35-yard dart to wide receiver Mike Williams to get kicker Cameron Dicker into range. Herbert spiked the ball to stop the clock and then the team got a delay of game penalty before the attempt.
Dicker nailed the kick from 43 yards and Los Angeles would win the game, 17-14.
The teams combined for 17 points in the fourth quarter, which was the most scoring done throughout the game. Tennessee tied the game 7-7 in the second quarter on a 4-yard run from Derrick Henry. Neither team scored again until Austin Ekeler scored on a 3-yard run with 10:28 remaining in the game.
Ryan Tannehill tied the game with 48 seconds to play on a 1-yard rush. But it was Herbert who came through in the final seconds to help Los Angeles go to 8-6 and drop Tennessee to 7-7.
Herbert finished 28 for 42 with 313 passing yards. He didn’t throw a touchdown pass and instead tossed two interceptions. Ekeler had 12 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown while Joshua Kelley added 24 yards on 10 carries with a touchdown of his own.
Keenan Allen led Los Angeles with eight catches for 86 yards. Williams had four catches for 67 yards.
