The Los Angeles Chargers are winners in the regular-season opener.
It took overtime but the Chargers defeated a game Indianapolis Colts team 30-24 to get their first win of the season.
The win was in large part to Melvin Gordon’s replacement at running back, Austin Ekeler.
Ekeler was the featured back for the Chargers Sunday as Gordon is still holding out over a contract dispute.
Ekeler took full advantage of his opportunity in the spotlight as he scored three touchdowns.
He capped off his big day of 154 yards from scrimmage with a 7 yard TD run that proved to be the game winner in overtime.
