I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Raiders have a championship caliber defense when they stay fresh and get help from their offense.
They held the Chargers red hot offense to only 13 points and 286 yards. This was a total team effort.
The Black Hole, which is what I call the Raiders defensive line, manhandled the Chargers offensive line.
The Raiders were all over Phillip Rivers all game. They sacked him four times and hit him a total of seven times.
Rivers was only 23-of-39 with one touchdown pass and an interception. His quarterback rating was under 80 for only the second time this season.
Mike Tolbert who has had nine touchdowns in the last 10 games and has run for over 100 yards in the last two was held to 16 yards on seven carries.
The Raiders played a solid overall game as they defeated the Chargers 28-13. Up next for the Raiders is Jacksonville. Another must win game for Oakland.
