Raiders lead Chargers 24-17 in 3rd quarter
Question of the Day
Hester scored three plays after the Chargers had an apparent touchdown overruled. Rivers hit Brown in the left corner of the end zone with Lito Sheppard covering him tightly. But the referees ruled there was no catch because Sheppard had his hand on the ball when he landed out of bounds.
Hester then caught a 7-yard pass to make it 24-17 as the period ended.
On the previous possession, San Diego had recovered the ball after Carson Palmer was sacked at the 43-yard line and he fumbled when Antwan Barnes went to wrap his arms around Palmer. He hit the quarterback’s arm and Corey Liuget recovered. The Raiders were unsuccessful in challenging the call.
Chargers kicker Nick Novak missed a 46-yard field goal wide right, his second miss of the season after going 17 of 18.
Oakland extended its lead to 24-10 on Denarius Moore’s 26-yard TD catch with Quentin Jammer in close pursuit at 9:01.
After getting sacked to end the first half, Rivers found Brown on a 30-yard TD pass that Brown hauled in with two defenders grabbing at his right arm before they all collapsed in the end zone. Rivers had five completions on the drive after having just four in the first half. He was 12 for 18 for 145 yards in the third.
San Diego inside linebacker Takeo Spikes sustained a concussion late in the first half and didn’t return. Chargers guard Louis Vasquez injured his ankle and was doubtful to return.
The bumbling Chargers managed just three first downs in the half. Rivers was 4 for 11 with 44 yards and got sacked three times. They had four consecutive three-and-out drives before Rivers was sacked on San Diego’s final possession of the half.
Michael Bush scored Oakland’s first TD on a 2-yard plunge in the first quarter, giving them a 7-3 lead. He had 17 carries for 86 yards in the half. Moore had three catches for 86 yards.
Novak kicked a 20-yard field goal for the Chargers.
Oakland wide receiver Jacoby Ford sustained a foot injury on the Raiders‘ first TD drive. He was helped off the field and was questionable to return.
Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill, who already had a neck injury, sustained a stinger on San Diego’s second possession. He was carted off and was doubtful to return.
Both teams were playing on short rest, each having lost Sunday.
