LANDOVER, Md. — Justin Herbert threw for 337 yards and a touchdown to help the Los Angeles Chargers beat Washington 20-16 in an ugly Week 1 matchup full of turnovers and big penalties.
Herbert fumbled into the end zone and threw an interception, but connected with Mike Williams for the go-ahead score after Washington's Antonio Gibson lost a fumble of his own.
L.A.'s Austin Ekeler also ran for a touchdown after being listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was knocked out of his debut as Washington's starting quarterback with a right hip injury.
Taylor Heinicke replaced Fitzpatrick and could be the starter moving forward.
