Open Thread: San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders, 2nd Half

The San Diego Chargers are playing terribly on offense and defense, and trail the Oakland Raiders 17-0 at halftime.

That was horrendous. The San Diego Chargers can't cover anybody, can't sack Terrelle Pryor, can't stop the run, and can't get anything going on offense. The Oakland Raiders are winning the line of scrimmage and dominating the game in all facets.

The Chargers have turned the ball over twice, once on special teams and once on a Philip Rivers interception. They're going to need at least one defensive turnover in the second half to come back and win this game against a division rival. They're also going to need to change something to start winning the the line of scrimmage battles.

Danny Woodhead has been the centerpiece of the San Diego offense, for some reason. He's been targeted, or given the ball on a run play, on 11 of the Chargers 31 total offensive plays. The next highest on that list would be Antonio Gates or Eddie Royal, both of whom have been targeted 4 times.

Ryan Mathews has left the game with a concussion and will not return.
