Austin Ekeler gets Chargers started in second half with 84-yard TD reception

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler had his way with the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense Sunday.

Ekeler took a short pass from Philip Rivers on a bubble screen and scampered through the middle of Jacksonville's defense untouched for an 84-yard touchdown reception to open the third quarter.

The pitch and catch was the longest touchdown pass of Rivers' 16-year NFL career. Ekeler has 11 total touchdowns on the season and has 191 total yards from scrimmage against the Jaguars through three quarters.
