Since 2020, the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers have played seven times. Six of those games were one-score games. This was no different as the Chargers won 24-17.
Let’s take a look at the key aspects of the game:
What it means:
The Raiders have lost three straight games and are 1-3 for the second straight season. They are 1-1 in the AFC West.
The Chargers led 24-7 at halftime and the Raiders made it close, because that won’t the Chargers do. They Charger. But late plays by cornerback Asante Samuel and quarterback Justin Herbert saved the Chargers from themselves in a game the Raiders committed three turnovers.
Raiders star wide receiver Davante Adams appeared to hurt his shoulder in the second quarter and he went to the locker room for evaluation. He returned later in the quarter. Later in the second quarter, rookie defensive tackle Nesta Jade Silvera, playing his first game, went down. Cornerback David Long hurt his ankle in the third quarter. He did not return.
