Austin Ekeler rushed for a career-best 173 yards in Cleveland. He also has five touchdowns in the last two games. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said he felt early on against the Browns that Ekeler was about to erupt. “Man, this kid is on fire and ready to play today,” Lombardi said, recalling thinking. “I’m sure he felt it.” Denver sits in midfield against the run and is 15th overall. But the Broncos are fourth in points allowed, give up 16 per game and — watch out, Justin Herbert — have the NFL’s No. 1 defense against the pass. The Chargers’ Week 5 win in Cleveland included a late, failed fourth attempt. The Chargers are five to 11 in fourth place for the season, those 11 tries being Jacksonville’s most in the AFC to come in Week 6. Lombardi took the blame for the failure against the Browns, saying he specifically instructed Herbert to throw to Mike Williams, a pass the Browns defended well. “There’s a lot of discussion about analytics and I think it’s important and it’s wise to use it,” Lombardi said, speaking of the approach to Fourth Downs in general. “We all doubled down on 11 if the dealer shows a six [in blackjack] and lost a hand. But it’s still the right thing to do.”
