Trayvon Mullen was called for holding on a fourth-down pass to extend the drive, but Joseph then intercepted a fourth-down pass from Rivers to seal it.

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

With Rivers flunking in the first quarter against Oakland, NFL fans and media members tore into the quarterback.

Rivers threw back-to-back interceptions on the first two drives, both to safety Erik Harris, who returned the second one 56 yards for a touchdown. Los Angeles took a 14-10 edge when Melvin Gordon scored a 3-yard rushing touchdown 4:20 before halftime.

The Raiders lead 17-14 at intermission.

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Rivers now has 24 career pick-sixes, second most among active quarterbacks. No. 4 played all 58 offensive snaps against the Chargers, and on the final drive of the evening, he was a true maestro, completing five of his seven attempts for 53 yards. Chargers kicker Mike Badgley answered with another field goal at the end of the third quarter. 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.

Jacobs responded with the go-ahead score on the following possession.

Joseph broke up a fourth-down pass in the end zone in the final seconds of the Raiders' 31-24 win over Detroit on November 3. Harris totaled 115 yards on his interception returns, out-gaining every pass catcher in receiving yards and player in rushing yards.
