With bragging rights and the top spot in the AFC West on the line, the Chargers went to battle with the Raiders under the lights in primetime. As the clock ticked to zero, it was the Chargers who came out victorious behind a 21-point first half in which they turned into a 28-14 final score.
Justin Herbert was mistake-less for the second-straight week, throwing for three more touchdowns without a turnover of any kind. Austin Ekeler recorded his first 100-yard rushing game of the season with 117 yards on 15 carries with a score. He also caught a 14-yard touchdown on a perfectly-thrown pass in the second quarter.
Defensively, the Chargers held the NFL’s leader in total offense and passing yards to just 213 total yards, 196 of which came from quarterback Derek Carr.
Joey Bosa was one of four Chargers to record a sack and Derwin James recorded his first interception of the season to put away the Raiders for good in the fourth.
The Chargers will be back at home next week to host the Browns (3-1).
