Share

Sure enough, there was no quit in the Chargers who took a 24-20 lead with 4:02 to play. Then, Derek Carr got under center and went to work.

The Raiders hosted their final game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Thursday night, in an AFC West divisional showdown against the Chargers, and fans were fired up from whistle to whistle.

"We just found a way to win". But Thursday night was one the safety will remember for the rest of his life. You see our team with the resilience.

"It was pretty exciting and a special moment for this team, special moment for my teammates", Harris said. The Raiders' offense answered with a long drive that was capped by a Josh Jacobs 18-yard touchdown run to put them up 26-24 with a minute to go. "No one cared, No one flinched".

Carr completed 21 of 31 passes for 218 yards and a TD as the Raiders improved to 5-4.

The victory didn't come easy as Daniel Carlson missed the extra point, putting more pressure on the exhausted Raiders defense to stop Rivers.

Rivers almost escaped multiple interceptions on the Chargers' first drive, the initial one being wiped away by a questionable pass interference call. Over his past six ballgames, Carr has been stellar, throwing 10 touchdowns, and just a single interception. 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.

The Chargers settled for a field goal after getting inside the 10 later in the quarter.

Melvin Gordon had 22 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown for Los Angeles, and Rivers was intercepted three times.
