Brees, Lutz Lift Saints Past Hard-luck Chargers, 30-27 in OT
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Wil Lutz kicked a 36-yard field goal with 5:08 left in overtime and New Orleans’ defense preserved a 30-27 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. Los Angeles kicker Michael Badgley missed his first career point-after kick wide right in the first quarter but had a chance to redeem himself when he lined up for a potential game-winner from 50 yards in the final seconds of regulation. His kick bounced off the right upright. Drew Brees rushed for a 1-yard touchdown and hit tight end Jared Cook for a 41-yard score. Chargers rookie Justin Herbert passed for four touchdowns.
