Lions and Chargers hope to learn how to maintain late leads

DETROIT (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers and Detroit Lions got off to solid starts in their openers, building double-digit leads in the second half before blowing them and going to overtime.

Los Angeles led Indianapolis by 15 points midway through the third quarter and salvaged a victory on Austin Ekeler's third touchdown with 5:01 left in the extra period.

"You won, but there's a still a feeling that we weren't at our best and that's a heavy feeling," Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. "In some ways it could be a good thing. I think our guys will be very focused this week."
