--The Chargers passing game was fully intact as QB Philip Rivers threw 214 yards and three touchdowns. San Diego marked an impressive 9.7-yard average per pass compared to Oakland's 3.3-yard average.
--WR Vincent Jackson led the team by setting a new career-high of 148 receiving yards on five catches. Jackson scored his sixth touchdown of the season, which ties his career-best.
RB LaDainian Tomlinson
--The Chargers held an 8:26 advantage in time of possession, which aided in the Bolts collecting twice as many first downs as the Raiders (18-9). Making the most of its possessions, San Diego nearly doubled Oakland in total net yards, 372 to 163.
--Scoring on their first four possessions, the Chargers recorded their longest touchdown drive of the season in the second quarter. San Diego marched 15 plays and 96 yards in 8:29, capping things off with an 8-yard TD pass to Darren Sproles.
--For the third time in his career, Sproles scored two touchdowns in a game. However, this was the first time the damage came through the air. The previous multi-score games came in 2007, as Sproles returned two kicks for scores against the Indianapolis Colts and ran in a pair of touchdowns against the Detroit Lions.
--The Chargers pass rush cranked up the pressure, regardless of which Raiders QB was under center. LB Shaun Phillips set a new career-high with 2.5 sacks, sharing one with Jyles Tucker. The heavy pressure helped Stephen Cooper to a career night of his own, grabbing a pair of interceptions.
What Didn't Work
--The Raiders collected an impressive 189 kickoff return yards to the Chargers' 38. Granted, the Raiders had five more attempts to work with, but Oakland's return average was still 8.5 yards better than San Diego's. KR Justin Miller skewed the numbers with a 92-yard return for a touchdown, accounting for the Raiders' only points of the evening.
--Once again, penalties were an issue for the Chargers. San Diego was penalized nine times for 51 yards, with one of those penalties wiping out an apparent 86-yard punt return TD by Sproles.
The Chargers pack their bags for their final divisional road game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs. With a 1-10 record, the Chiefs are standing in last place in the AFC West.
However, before the Chargers and Chiefs become enemies on Dec. 14, the Chargers will don their red and yellow and cheer for the Chiefs on Sunday. If Kansas City can upset the first-place Denver Broncos at Invesco Field, it could open the door for the Chargers to sneak back into the division race.
