Chargers Capitalize On Raiders Errors, Win 22-14
The San Diego Chargers capitalized off of sloppy play by Oakland's special teams to score crucial field goals that made the difference. Oakland long-snapper Travis Goethel botched three snaps to Shane Lechler that prevented Oakland from pinning San Diego deep, and the Chargers took advantage of those long-snapping errors with three crucial second half field goals.
Nate Kaeding kicked five field goals of 23, 28, 19, 41 and 45 yards, and Philip Rivers threw the only touchdown of the game to Malcolm Floyd to put San Diego up for good in the second quarter. Despite the nonexistence of San Diego's rush attack, Rivers had an efficient game, completing over 70% of his passes for seven yards per pass attempt.
The Raiders managed a late touchdown drive in the 4th quarter, capped off by a Carson Palmer connection with Rod Streater.
