Justin Herbert has nine completions. Six different receivers have receptions. Three of those have touchdowns.
Los Angeles leads the Saints 20-10 at halftime.
Herbert had three touchdowns in last week’s loss to the Buccaneers after tossing one in each of his first two starts. He went 9-of-13 for 109 yards in the first half Monday, outplaying Drew Brees.
New Orleans trailed 20-3 before Brees reached the ball over the plane for a 1-yard touchdown with 14 seconds remaining and the Saints out of timeouts. It got the home team closer heading into the locker room.
The Chargers ruled out Allen, who has a back injury.
