Final Score

Oakland Raiders 26, Los Angeles Chargers 24

Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr didn’t push the ball down the field much against the Chargers, as most of his targets went to running backs and tight end Darren Waller instead of the Raiders’ wide receivers. Alec Ingold had a very productive second quarter, as he had a tackle on a punt return, converted a key fourth down on a fullback dive and then caught a flare pass out of the backfield for a touchdown.

Josh Jacobs continued to generate yards on his own by making tacklers miss both as a rusher and a receiver. Jacobs saved his best for last as his final run of the night resulted in an 18-yard go-ahead touchdown for the Raiders.

Erik Harris had a career day against Los Angeles. He officially recorded two interceptions, including a pick-six, in the contest and had a third interception in the red zone that was called back due to a questionable offsides penalty.

Los Angeles Chargers

Melvin Ingram slid inside of Gabe Jackson and got a first-quarter sack of Carr that forced a field goal attempt. Ingram also batted down a third-quarter pass. Ingram added a second sack when he beat Kolton Miller outside in the third quarter.

Uchenna Nwosu grabbed a fourth-quarter sack after getting by Gabe Jackson on a stunt. Michael Davis had a nice breakup of a pass intended for Waller in the fourth-quarter.

While Melvin Gordon turned in a strong performance on the ground, poor showings from Philip Rivers and Dan Feeney cost the Chargers the game. Rivers missed more throws than we've come to expect from the veteran signal-caller, and Feeney was a punching bag for Raiders' P.J. Hall all game long.
