The Raiders initiated 27 first downs. Their thirst to score made them delegate their defensive line to the back seat. The Raiders limited their opponents to a 59% completion rate and 22 rush attacks.

Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers directed their ferocity against the Minnesota Vikings. However, they didn’t anticipate that the Vikings would fight back. As a result, the Chargers were defeated with an overwhelming 39-10 scoreboard. QB Philip Rivers was going for 28/39 with 307 air yards. He was able to complete a thrown TD. Melvin Gordon tried to gun for the elusive rushing TD. He was repulsed by the good enemy defense. However, he settled for 7 carries at a measly 28 yards.
The Chargers tried to match their opponent’s tactics. However, they were weighed down heavily by the staunch defense. The Chargers only set 19 first downs. They used the rush attack for 19 out of 61 plays only. Like other beleaguered teams facing a superior opponent with unbreakable defense, the Chargers switched to a mixed-offense tactic. They couldn’t make it fly though. The Chargers covered 345 yards, while their opponent gathered 344.
Even with the same yardage gain, the Chargers were at a sore disadvantage. They couldn’t score nor defend because of their opponent’s consistent pressure. In the end, they lacked the extra bit of steam needed for them to equalize or surmount the opponent’s score.
