Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Raiders Recap DEC 17TH 2020

Josh Jacobs' 18-yard touchdown run with 1:02 left Thursday night lifted the Oakland Raiders to a 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers at RingCentral Coliseum in Oakland.

On third-and-1, Jacobs burst through a huge hole blown open by center Rodney Hudson and left guard Richie Incognito, then broke an arm tackle near the 10 for the score. Daniel Carlson missed the ensuing extra-point attempt, but the Raiders hung on to improve to 5-4. Los Angeles fell to 4-6, seriously damaging its playoff hopes.

Philip Rivers completed 17 of 31 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns, including a 6-yard pass to Austin Ekeler with 4:02 remaining in the game for a 24-20 lead. But the Chargers' final possession ended with Karl Joseph intercepting Rivers at the Oakland 35 on a fourth-and-10 heave with 20 seconds left, Rivers' third pick of the game.

Derek Carr hit on 21 of 31 passes for 218 yards with a touchdown for Oakland, which was outgained 315-278 and had the ball for only 25:50. But the Raiders sacked Rivers five times and played a turnover-free game.

Melvin Gordon rushed 22 times for 108 yards and a score for Los Angeles, his first 100-yard game of the year.

Rivers came out of the gate in shaky fashion. Erik Harris intercepted him twice in the first nine minutes, the first one leading to a field goal and the second becoming a 56-yard touchdown return for a 10-0 Oakland lead.

But Los Angeles finally found footing offensively with two second-quarter touchdowns in a 4:10 span. Rivers flipped a 2-yard scoring strike to tight end Hunter Henry, and Gordon gave the Chargers a 14-10 lead on a 3-yard run with 4:14 left in the half.

The Raiders' offense then put together its first good drive to close the half. Oakland marched 76 yards in 10 plays, taking a 17-14 halftime lead when Carr found Alec Ingold for a 9-yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds remaining.

The teams exchanged short field goals in the third quarter, setting the stage for a dramatic ending.

Justin Herbert scored on a 1-yard plunge with 1:29 remaining in overtime as the visiting Los Angeles Chargers dealt a severe blow to the host Las Vegas Raiders' playoff hopes with a 30-27 victory on Thursday night.

Herbert barely stretched the ball into the end zone on a third-and-goal dive off left tackle as the Chargers (5-9) snapped a nine-game division losing streak with their second consecutive victory.

Herbert, who hit Jalen Guyton with a 53-yard pass to help set up the winning score, completed 22 of 32 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns, tying Baker Mayfield's NFL rookie touchdown record of 27 in the process.

The winning touchdown came after Daniel Carlson had put Las Vegas (7-7) ahead with a 23-yard field goal with 3:18 left and spoiled a big night off the bench by Raiders quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Las Vegas, which lost for the fourth time in five-game, lost starting quarterback Derek Carr to a left groin injury suffered on a scramble late in the first quarter. But Mariota, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, was outstanding in his Raiders' debut, completing 17 of 28 passes for 226 yards, one touchdown and an interception while also rushing for a game-high 88 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.

Darren Waller had nine receptions for 150 yards and a touchdown and Josh Jacobs rushed for 76 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries for Las Vegas.

Guyton had four catches for 91 yards and Hunter Henry and Tyron Johnson each had touchdown catches for the Chargers. Keenan Allen, who saw limited action because of a hamstring injury, caught one pass to give hit the 100-catch mark for the third time in his career.

The Chargers took a 24-17 lead on a one-yard touchdown run by Kalen Ballage late in the third quarter. But the Raiders responded with a 19-play, 75-yard drive that chewed up 10:52 --- the team's longest since 2007 - with Mariota diving in from 2 yards out to make it 24-24.

Michael Badgley had two chances to win it in the final four minutes but his 47-yard field goal try missed as did his 51-yarder with 53 seconds left in regulation. Both were wide left.
