From penalties to red-zone issues to dropped touchdowns, Dennis Allen’s team did a little bit of everything while suffering their seventh loss in eight games.
The 26-13 final score wasn’t truly indicative of how poorly things went for the Raiders. That they still had a chance late in the fourth quarter spoke more to the Chargers’ inability to put opponents away than it did anything else.
The game did serve to clear up a few issues for Oakland. Running back Darren McFadden, for example, effectively cemented his way out of town with another poor performance. Pat Sims and the defensive line, on the other hand, were stellar against the run most of the afternoon in what was one of their most dominant efforts of the season.
