Recap: Oakland vs. San Diego

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Terrelle Pryor threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns in the Oakland Raiders' 27-17 victory over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night.

Pryor, who missed last week's 24-14 loss to Washington with a concussion, completed 18-of-23 passes for the Raiders (2-3), who snapped a two-game skid. He also carried the ball 11 times for 31 yards.

Denarius Moore caught five passes for 84 yards and a touchdown for Oakland, which saw Rod Streater catch three passes for 56 yards and a score.

Rashad Jennings, filling in for an injured Darren McFadden, carried the ball 10 times for 41 yards.

"It was a great team win. All three phases contributed," Oakland coach Dennis Allen said.

Philip Rivers connected on 36-of-49 passes for 411 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions for the Chargers (2-3), who turned the ball over five times.

Keenan Allen hauled in six passes for 115 yards and a score, while Vincent Brown caught eight passes for 117 yards.

San Diego running back Ryan Mathews left the game in the second quarter with a concussion. The Chargers finished the game with just 32 yards on the ground.

The game was moved to an 8:35 p.m. PT start to allow the O.Co Coliseum workers time to transform the stadium from baseball to football following the Athletics' playoff game on Saturday night.

Rivers was intercepted by Usama Young on the third play of the game. It took Pryor just one pass to hook up with Streater for a 44-yard score.

Pryor, who completed his first 10 passes, stayed hot on Oakland's next possession. Moore caught three passes during the 13-play drive, including a 2- yard TD catch.

"I thought he started the game out about as good as you can start out," Allen said of Pryor.

Oakland's defense came up with a big goal line stand early in the second quarter. San Diego was faced with a decision after Rivers' pass fell incomplete on 3rd-and-goal from the one. The Chargers went for it on fourth down and Danny Woodhead was stuffed at the line.

The Raiders got a 47-yard field goal from Sebastian Janikowski after Eddie Royal muffed a punt.

San Diego's first possession of the second half had some drama. Kicker Nick Novak actually made two appearances during the drive. The first time around, his 37-yard field goal was blocked. However, Ladarius Green picked up the ball and ran for 10 yards to give the Chargers a first down.

Just two plays later, Allen appeared to make an 11-yard TD catch in the left corner of the end zone. Upon further review, it was determined that Allen didn't get both feet down. The visitors eventually settled for a 35-yard field goal from Novak.

After Oakland went three-and-out, Woodhead lost control of the football. Charles Woodson picked up the ball and raced 25 yards the other way to make it 24-3. In the process, Woodson tied an NFL record for the most defensive touchdowns with 13.

San Diego responded with an 80-yard scoring drive. Vincent Brown and Ronnie Brown caught passes of 51 and 14 yards, respectively, to put the ball at the Oakland two. On the first play of the fourth period, Woodhead caught a shovel pass and made his way into the end zone.

The Chargers took over at their own 46 following another three-and-out by the Raiders. A defensive pass interference penalty on DJ Hayden moved the ball to the 30-yard line. Vincent Brown had a touchdown called back due to an illegal formation penalty. Oakland was called for a personal foul on the same play. Two plays later, Allen caught a 7-yard TD pass to get the visitors within 24-17 with 10:17 to play.

The Raiders finally got some offense going on the ensuing possession. Brice Butler's 20-yard catch moved the ball to the San Diego 39. The home team picked up just seven more yards before Janikowski made a 50-yard field goal.

Hayden and Woodson each picked off Rivers in the final two minutes to seal the victory for Oakland.
