Chargers convert game-winning FG to get by Eagles

Dustin Hopkins made a 29-yard field goal with two seconds remaining to give the visiting Los Angeles Chargers a 27-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Hopkins’ game-winner completed a 15-play, 64-yard drive. Justin Herbert threw for 356 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed for Los Angeles’ other touchdown. Keenan Allen caught 12 passes for 104 yards while Austin Ekeler rushed for 59 yards and also caught three passes for the Chargers (5-3).

Jalen Hurts threw for 162 yards and a touchdown for the Eagles (3-6). Hurts also rushed for 62 yards and Jordan Howard had 71 rushing yards and a touchdown. DeVonta Smith hauled in five passes for 116 yards and a touchdown.

The Eagles led 10-7 at halftime.

The Chargers drove 98 yards on their first possession but came up empty. Starting from their own 1-yard line, they ran off 15 plays but turned the ball over on downs at Philadelphia’s 1.

After forcing a three-and-out, Los Angeles found the end zone. Jared Cook’s 23-yard reception set up Herbert’s 2-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Anderson.

Philadelphia tied it with a 75-yard drive, which Howard finished off with a 4-yard run. Smith’s 27-yard reception was the longest play during that possession.

The Eagles had a 68-yard drive late in the half but settled for Jake Elliott’s 24-yard field goal.

Hopkins’ 30-yard field goal early in the third tied the game. Herbert’s 8-yard scoring pass to Donald Parham gave the Chargers a 16-10 lead but the extra point was missed.

Philadelphia regained the lead on an 85-yard drive that Kenneth Gainwell completed with a 1-yard run. Hurts completed three passes of 19 yards or more during that span.

Los Angeles regained the lead with 11:32 remaining on Herbert’s 8-yard run. He also tossed a two-point conversion to Cook for a 24-17 lead.

Hurts’ 28-yard pass to Smith with 6:07 remaining tied it up. Hurts picked up first downs with his legs twice during the drive.
