Christmas is approaching and the cream is starting to rise to the top of the division. Without further ado…..
This team has turned into the ultimate shit show. They are finding new ways to lose. Derek Carr was 28 of 38 (73.6%) for 249 yards with 2 carries for 24 yards. Josh Jacobs had 13 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown with 9 receptions for 38 yards. Hunter Renfrow had 9 receptions for 102 yards. The defense had a sack and 5 tackles for loss with a interception. Daniel Carlson was 3 for 3 on fieldgoals. The Raiders are again in their end of the season fall apart mode, unreal.
The defense was decent, the offense was a different story. Teddy Bridgewater was 22 of 40 (55%) for 257 yards a touchdown and 2 interceptions with 4 carries for 17 yards. Javonte Williams had 23 carries for 102 yards with 6 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown. Jerry Jeudy had 4 receptions for 77 yards. The defense had a sack and 3 tackles for loss with a interception. Brandon McManus was 1 for 1 on fieldgoals. The lone bright spot was Williams and that is what led to this loss.
They won the game but is was a so-so performance. Patrick Mahomes was 15 of 29 (51.7%) for 184 yards and a interception with 4 carries for 12 yards and a touchdown. Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 14 carries for 54 yards with 3 receptions for 28 yards. Darrel Williams had 3 receptions for 60 yards with 5 carries for 20 yards. The defense had a sack and 2 tackles for loss with 2 interceptions with one returned for a touchdown. Harrison Butker was 3 for 3 on fieldgoals and 1 for 2 on extra points. Ugly wins count too.
The Chargers came out strong, slowed down but ultimately blew the doors off to record the win. Justin Herbert was 26 of 35 (74.2%) for 317 yards and 3 touchdown and a interception with 1 carry for 6 yards. Austin Ekeler had 14 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown with 5 receptions for 45 yards and 2 lost fumbles. Mike Williams had 5 receptions for 110 yards. The defense had 6 sacks with 5 tackles for loss with 2 interceptions and 2 fumble recoveries with 1 returned for a touchdown. Dustin Hopkins was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals and 3 for 4 on extra points. This was a great road win against a very good team.
