Ekeler scores 3 touchdowns, Chargers hold off Texans 34-24

HOUSTON (AP) Austin Ekeler was off to a slow start following a 20-touchdown season, and the Chargers believed he was due for a breakout game.

He had it Sunday, scoring his first three touchdowns of the year to lead Los Angeles to a 34-24 win over the Houston Texans.

"To get him going today was big," Los Angeles coach Brandon Staley said. "He played like a captain today beyond his performance on the field. He really led our football team on offense and just played with the energy that he's known for and just a complete performance by him."
