Raiders vs. Chargers: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IDecember 2, 2015

The San Diego Chargers held on at home to defeat the Oakland Raiders in Week 17, winning by a score of 24-21.

Philip Rivers only threw 17 passes, but he made the most of his opportunities, completing 13 of them for 151 yards and two touchdowns.

His rushing attack was held mostly in check, as the Chargers only managed 70 yards on 31 carries, but they pounded away enough to win the time of possession battle and the game.

Terrelle Pryor had his fair share of ups and downs in his first professional start. He only completed 13-of-28 passes for 150 yards, but he threw two late touchdowns and ran in another one to go along with one interception.

Both teams struggled on offense, and it was far from a pretty game to watch, but for Raiders fans, it's perhaps a glimpse of the future, as Pryor showed flashes of greatness.

Both teams entered the game without a chance of making the playoffs, and both teams will undergo some changes in the offseason, in one form or another.
