It was an entertaining contest from start to finish, with the Raiders jumping out to a 10-0 lead, but the Chargers slowly chipping away, and eventually getting ahead with roughly four minutes remaining.

The Chargers took a 24-20 lead when Rivers hit Austin Ekeler with a 6-yard touchdown toss with 4:08 remaining. The Raiders rookie took a handoff on a 3rd-and-1 play from the Chargers' 18-yard line during the sequence. They did just that as safety Karl Joseph picked off Rivers with 20 seconds to go to seal the win.

Unfortunately, Rivers had one of his worst outings of the season, and passed for 207 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in the 26-24 loss.
