Carson Palmer was a big question mark heading into the season, but he completed 70 percent of his passes and didn't turn the ball over once.
The Raiders also did a solid job of cutting back on penalties. They only committed six on Monday night, but defensive tackle Tommy Kelly was flagged for being offsides twice on third down which helped keep the Chargers' drives alive.
Oakland only scored 14 points all game, and it took the team 59 minutes to get its first touchdown. With a matchup against the Miami Dolphins awaiting in Week 2, there are still questions surrounding the Raiders that must be answered if they want to make the playoffs.
