Raiders Beat Chargers to Put Pressure on Chiefs

Melvin Gordon

Derek Carr led the Raiders down the field on a 75-yard drive after Philip Rivers threw a 6-yard pass to Austin Ekeler that gave the Chargers a 24-20 lead with 4:02 remaining.

Playing for the final time at the Oakland Coliseum, Rivers threw three interceptions, including one to Oakland Raiders safety Karl Joseph on his team's final play of the game, leading to a 26-24 setback Thursday night. "Just disappointed we didn't play better and find a way to win". "Some nights are just tougher than others".

For a group of fans who will lose their team next year to Las Vegas, you take your hat off to them. But Thursday night was one the safety will remember for the rest of his life.


If Oakland wins, they will remain in second place in the AFC West, whereas if Los Angeles wins, they will jump over the Raiders and move into second place behind the Chiefs. "No one cared, No one flinched". Rivers completed 17 of 31 passes for 207 yards and two scores, in addition to his trio of turnovers. Trayvon Mullen was called for holding on a fourth-down pass to extend the drive, but Joseph then intercepted a fourth-down pass from Rivers to seal it.

The Chargers (4-6) finally got on the scoreboard midway through the second quarter, with Rivers finding Hunter Henry for a 2-yard touchdown. Chargers kicker Mike Badgley answered with another field goal at the end of the third quarter. In total, Jacobs played 30 snaps against Los Angeles (52 percent) finishing his evening with 16 carries for 71 yards, as well as three receptions for 30 yards, oh, and the game-winning touchdown as well.
