Chargers QB Philip Rivers scuffles in tough road loss to Raiders

10 November 2019

Derek Carr handles business - The stats alone weren't overly impressive for DC Thursday night in primetime - he completed 21 of his 31 attempts for 218 yards and a touchdown - but when the pressure was on, Carr was at his best. "Some nights are just tougher than others". This time the late-game heroics came after Philip Rivers threw a 6-yard pass to Austin Ekeler that gave the Chargers (4-6) a 24-20 lead with 4:02 remaining. You see our team with the resilience.

"Sack totals are driving me nuts", coach Jon Gruden said after the Raiders' 26-24 win over the Chargers. But we'll be a hard out to get.

But he fell short at the end.

The Raiders' rookie class has gained notice for improving throughout the season. The defensive back picked off Rivers again on the following possession and ran 56 yards for a score, putting the Raiders up 10-0 in the first quarter.
