VIDEO: Chargers Jump Ahead on 6-Yard TD From Philip Rivers to Austin Ekeler

Austin Ekeler scores go-ahead touchdown for Chargers on Thursday vs. Raiders.

After trailing the Oakland Raiders 10-0 in the early goings of Thursday Night Football, the Los Angeles Chargers are back in the lead. In the fourth quarter, the Bolts capped off a long drive with a dump-off pass from quarterback Philip Rivers to running back Austin Ekeler, who took it six yards into the end zone to help give the visitors a late 24-20 lead.

Fellow running back Melvin Gordon found the end zone in the first half, and Ekeler joined the party when it matter most.
