Endler was able to prevent Lloyd from another attempt at a hat trick when she tipped the US captain's shot over the net in the 72nd minute.
So will this be another USA blowout?
Lloyd became the first player to score in six consecutive World Cup matches when putting her team ahead in the 11th minute by smashing a half-volley into the net from just inside the box.
This is Yahoo Soccer's daily Women's World Cup recap.
Julie Ertz and Lloyd then both headed in from first-half corners, before Chile keeper Christiane Endler pulled off several stunning second-half saves to prevent the holders adding to their lead.
It's been a big year for Morgan, who's playing in her third World Cup.
Lloyd was the hero of the World Cup in Canada four years ago when she scored three goals in the final against Japan that gave the Americans their third World Cup title.
Lloyd had a chance to complete her hat trick in the second half when a VAR review led to the Americans being awarded a spot kick, but she put her penalty kick wide.

Combine that with the mass changes to the starting lineup and this result doesn't alter what we knew about the Americans coming in.
Chile lost its opener to Sweden 2-0 but goalkeeper Endler kept the Swedes out of the goal until 83rd minute. There's a chance that with Morgan, Rapinoe and Heath the USA could have defeated Chile by six goals, but having those stars even more rested for what the team hopes is a seven-game tournament run should be an advantage.
Becky Sauerbrunn, who sat out the match against Thailand because of a minor quad injury, returned and anchored a backline that included 20-year-old Tierna Davidson, who was making her World Cup debut. The second goal got past her in stoppage time.
Carli Lloyd is the first player to score in six consecutive Women's World Cup games, netting nine goals in those matches.
