Detroit Lions Win Shootout against Chargers In Thriller Contest

Detroit Lions Win Shootout against Chargers In Thriller Contest

The Detroit Lions returned to action Sunday on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers and won a 41-38 shootout in the last seconds. 

The game kicked off from SoFi Stadium at 4:05 p.m. The Lions were a 2½-point road favorite. 

The Lions were 3-0 up in the first quarter. Jared Goff got the drive started with a 46-yard completion to Amon-Ra St. Brown on a deep post. 

The Chargers replied with their own goal on the next possession. L.A. moved into Detroit territory on a 24-yard screen pass to Austin Ekeler. 

Detroit forced the offense off the field over the next three plays, leading to a 48-yard field goal from Cameron Dicker.

Jahmyr Gibbs had four carries for 52 yards on the drive and finished it with a one-yard plunge into the end zone off the left side of the line. It is the third consecutive week Gibbs has scored a touchdown, making him the first Lions rookie to do so since Kevin Smith in 2008. He also jones James Jones (1983) as the only Lions to produce 50+ scrimmage yards in each of their first seven career NFL games. The Lions were leading 10-3 at the end of the first quarter. 

Gibbs had 33 total yards on six touches on the drive in the second quarter. Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams also had catches for first downs to keep the drive moving. 

By halftime, Austin Ekeler scored a last-second TD and the Lions were leading by 24-17. Keeper scored with a one-yard touchdown on fourth down with 23 seconds left.

The Chargers tied the game in the fourth quarter with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Keenan Allen on fourth down to knot the game at 38. 

Riley Patterson won the game for the Lions with a 41-yard game-winning kick.
