Inglewood-Running back Austin Eckler said this week that the Chargers need to make counterattacks adjustments to get rid of their offensive fear.

The Chargers made adjustments to the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Sunday night, allowing wide receiver Mike Williams to participate in advance, switching on the third fall, quarterback Justin Herbert extended the game with his legs .

These adjustments benefited Ekeler, who had a total of four touchdowns in a 41-37 victory over the Steelers at SoFi Stadium. Eckler has 50 yards in 11 rushes, two touchdowns and 6 catches, 65 yard catches and two touchdowns.

Eckler hit his 21st career touchdown with a 10-yard catch in the second quarter, and hit his 22nd touchdown with a 17-yard catch in the third quarter. Eckler recorded a 6-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter and a 5-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter.

"He is a complete player," Lightning coach Brandon Starley said of Eckler. "I think this is what I like about this person. He is a complete player. He is a threat in running games, a threat in passing games, passing protection. He has real resilience. This is what we are trying to build In the way of this procedure, people like him are tough players like Jesse. He is like this. He has four touchdowns in NFL games, which is really difficult to achieve. This will help his fantasy ( Football team) Wait. He likes that very much."

The Chargers had only three rounds in the first half, but they used two touchdowns and a field goal to make them count. In the two teams' offensive burst, the Chargers had eight offenses in the second half.

The Chargers' offense entered Sunday, disappointing performance in three of the first four games. They stalled in the games against the Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings due to passing errors, lack of yardage after contact, and difficulty maintaining long distance passes.
