How to handle Raiders QB vs. Chargers

Three consecutive losses later, the some observers are wondering if the Raiders will earn a playoff berth when they face the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday (1:25 p.m. PT/4:25 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV). Los Angeles scored 10 of their 17 points in the fourth quarter, as the failure to convert an extra point earlier in the quarter ultimately made the difference for the silver and black.

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said he wasn't anxious when Novak lined up for his field goal with three seconds on the clock.

The Chargers would get deep into Raiders' territory inside of two minutes.

The Raiders, who began the season with Super Bowl hopes, have a different feeling about being 2-4, especially with a game against Kansas City on Thursday night looming. Rivers hasn't skipped a beat, ranking 5th in the National Football League in passing yards with 1,365 yards and nine passing touchdowns.

Melvin Gordon: Gordon had 25 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Here are some of the best tweets following Oakland's 17-16 defeat to Los Angeles (warning: the following is not the nicest of comments regarding the team's coaching staff). Carr threw an incomplete pass on second down and then came up 2 yards short on a third-down play.

But Carr didn't look anything like the quarterback who led the Raiders to 12 wins a year ago before going down with a season-ending broken leg in the second-to-last game. The Oakland linebackers and Safeties will have their hands full with the Chargers dynamic duo of Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry. Novak missed a 48-yard field goal in the first quarter, but delivered when it counted most. "Nick has been an accurate kicker for a long time".

After being informed of the blast, the security forces rushed to the site and cordoned off the area to launch operation. Pakistan's army says a roadside bomb near the Afghan border has killed four soldiers and wounded three others.

For the first time in almost a year - and for the first time since their relocation to the Los Angeles area - the Chargers (2-4) are riding back-to-back victories. He added six catches for 58 yards and two touchdowns and likely won some people cash money in Daily Fantasy. He had three catches for 42 yards and a score.

Cordarrelle Patterson has a knack for making big plays in versatile ways. "Guys that are responsible for that have to make the play".

Raiders fans are undoubtedly frustrated with the performances the team has put together recently. None of them led to any points.

Will Derek Carr make his return this Sunday? The Chargers failed to capitalize.

Much of the offense's struggles come from the offensive line's inability to protect the quarterback. Without deep passes to Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, the Oakland offense was left with few positives and just 274 yards of total offense and 13 first downs.

In the third, Pullard snatched a pass that bounced off of running back Marshawn Lynch. While EJ Manuel didn't play badly in his time stepping in for Carr, he still couldn't lead the Raiders to a win last week over the Baltimore Ravens.
