Their first two goalline plays went to Derek Watt and Lance Kendricks.

Here's my thing with officiating: The NFL has so many dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb rules. But the most important thing is calling them consistently, even if they're dumb.
There is no way you can overturn Ekeler's TD and have that one stand. That is a blatant lack of consistency.
Keenan Allen watching Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler catch TDs.
Ekeler in the slot and too fast for a LB on a crossing route. There's no penalty for stealing plays... https://t.co/4puNFRF8jc
Austin Ekeler now has six receiving TDs, tops in the NFL among running backs.
Austin Ekeler #playmaker.
#Chargers take the lead!

How do you not love Austin Ekeler? Probably the best RB on the roster and the best at creating on his own.
Andre Patton has 4 targets tonight
Mike Williams has 3
Austin Ekeler has 2
Melvin Gordon has 1 https://t.co/UVtY3yXJP3
#Chargers Week 10 RB Usage:
- Melvin Gordon, 65% snaps, 22 carries, 1 target
- Austin Ekeler, 44% snaps, 6 carries, 2 targets
Hunter Henry and Ekeler wide-open for checkdowns every play, three timeouts, and Rivers is throwing lollipops 40 yards down the field that weren’t even close
If only Melvin Gordon would have scored that TD at the end rather than Ekeler, we might be looking at a takedown! At that point in time I was 3 points away from 1st, sitting in 33rd. 55/130718... I'll take it! DFI crushing the NFL war rooms! @dfinsider @JustinMacMahan https://t.co/NU7oRUI4XN
I don’t wanna hear shit from rivers tonight if he’s not ready to accountability on that last drive. Ekeler wide open on the flat. Defender on Williams went down and rivers just closed his eyes and threw.
Sucks being an Ekeler owner :/
I want to give a shout out to the Chargers play calling to end the game.. needed a FG to win with 3 TOs & dropped back & went for it all nearly every play. You have Ekeler & didn’t use him in the pass game? Appreciate it! #RaiderNation
Zero Austin Ekeler targets on the drive made for Austin Ekeler 9 yard check downs.
Este partido lo perdió Philip Rivers... DOS DE SUS TRES INTERCEPCIONES FUERON MUY ESTÚPIDAS... 1:04 AL RELOJ, TIENES A ALLEN, HENRY, EKELER Y WILLIAMS E INSISTES IR LARGO? EL CAPITÁN YA FUE
And ekeler and henry open short. When u have THREE timeouts and 1:00. And only needed to go 30 yards. Arghhhhhh
@410EastCoast @Tha_Frederation @angry_nfl
I just rewatched all 8 plays. Can confirm pocket collapsed both times before Ekeler got open; he either blocked or was covered every other time including final play. Only one play (Hunter Henry underneath route) did Rivers have time and went deep instead. You guys gotta rewatch.
niggas have Austin Ekeler and threw absolutely no checks downs on that last drive. But yet calling for deep throws with multiple timeouts left, a bad o line and no real speed at WR, send the Chargers to Beijing already
Solid game tonight. Josh Jacobs and Melvin Gordon balled out, Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry had decent games, and Austin Ekeler bailed out his owners (somewhat) with a receiving touchdown. Only let-down was Darren Waller, who has now failed to score over 10 in his last 3 games
1. Darren Waller tgt share: pre bye 27%, post bye 19%
2. Snaps: Melvin Gordon 65%📈, Austin Ekeler 44%
2a.⚡️Gordon gets 7 RZ touches (only 1 inside 5 tho), b2b productive wks
3. Phillip Rivers 1/7 w 2 INTs on throws >20 yd
4. Josh Jacobs ~19.8 FP/g since wk5 https://t.co/EXYWYwhQK3
People out there really think Ekeler is better than @Melvingordon25
@AmyTrask @Raiders @Chargers
I agree Amy. Got Ekeler in the backfield on each play, where were the screens and underneath stuff? Had 3 timeouts! PRiv seemed determined to go deep to #16 all night. Oh, AND HI!
I’m very curious to see the average yards per play by the Chargers offense when Ekeler is on the field vs. when Gordon is on the field.
There were so many times when it could’ve been dumped off to Ekeler and he had at least 10 to 15 yards of running room. Didn’t even look his way. They are grossly underutilizing Ekeler. Let him go make a difference on another team.
