Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers pulled off one of the biggest shockers of the NFL season, defeating the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium to make a statement in the AFC West. Justin Herbert’s 4-yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams with 32 seconds left gave Los Angeles a stunning 30-24 victory.
Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense had opportunities to win the game in the fourth quarter. In a tied game at 24-24, Mahomes threw an interception with 1:42 left to give Herbert and the Chargers the ball with an opportunity to win the game. Herbert took advantage thanks to a DeAndre Baker pass interference penalty on fourth-and-9 at the Chiefs’ 35-yard line to extend the drive. A gutsy fourth-down call by Chargers head coach Brandon Staley paid off, which led to the winning touchdown three plays later. Mahomes heaved a ball into the end zone with no time left, but the Hail Mary pass was short.
