Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Slow Start Put Bolts Behind the Eight Ball - Nick Toney
From the opening kickoff, the Raiders capitalized on the Bolts slow start.  They quickly forced a Philip Riversinterception, scored two first quarter touchdowns, and rode that early momentum to a 17-0 lead heading into halftime.

Mistakes, Lack of Execution Doom Chargers - Ricky Henne
After a clutch stop by the defense it appeared the Chargers had a jolt of life.  Unfortunately, two plays into the series, Woodhead fumbled and the Raiders returned it for a touchdown, all but sealing the win.  With less than two minutes remaining in the game and the team down by 10, Rivers tossed two more interceptions while trying desperately to force his team into making a play.

Rapid Reaction: San Diego Chargers - Eric Williams
The Chargers were shut out in the first half for the first time this season. They finished with more than 400 yards of offense but just 32 rushing yards. The Chargers played most of the contest without their leading rusher, Ryan Mathews, who left the game in the first half with a concussion.

Locker Room Buzz: San Diego Chargers - Eric Williams

"He didn’t make many mistakes," Chargers safety Eric Weddle said. "There were a few times where I could have baited him, and he never forced it in there. He’s shown that he’s gotten better in those situations. But when you turn the ball over five times and give up two easy scores like we did, you’re not going to win many games."
