With star running back Melvin Gordon holding out, Austin Ekeler came through in the clutch in Week 1 against for the Los Angeles Chargers against the Indianapolis Colts.

Thanks to the heroics of TY Hilton, the Colts sent the game into overtime. Ekeler, though, sent the Bolts home happy with a game-winning touchdown.

The touchdown, Ekeler’s third of the day was set up by another nice run from Ekeler.

Overall, Ekeler had more than 150 yards from scrimmage in the Week 1 win. We’d guess that a game ball may be coming his way.
