At 1-2 after getting rolled by the Jaguars last week in Los Angeles, the Chargers needed a get-right game against the Texans.
It certainly looks like they’re getting it.
The Chargers lead the Texans 27-7 at halftime.
Los Angeles built a 21-0 lead before Houston even got on the board. Running back Austin Ekeler scored two of the first three touchdowns. After tight end Gerald Everett opened the scoring with an 18-yard touchdown reception, Ekeler took in a 10-yard run to make it 14-0. Then he had a 20-yard score a drive later.
Rookie Dameon Pierce darted in for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play of Houston’s ensuing drive. But that has been about the extent of his team’s offense.
On the other side, Mills is 13-of-16 for 76 yards with an interception. Tight end O.J. Howard leads with a pair of catches for 27 yards.
