Recap: San Diego vs. Oakland

San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Diego Chargers snapped their three-game losing streak, but it wasn't pretty on offense.

Fortunately for the Chargers, they faced an Oakland Raiders offense that was even more inept.

Philip Rivers threw a touchdown pass, Nick Novak kicked two field goals and the Chargers posted a 13-6 home win on Sunday.

A banged-up Rivers completed 22-of-34 passes for 193 yards, and Ryan Mathews rushed for 70 yards in his first action for San Diego (6-4) since suffering a right knee injury against Seattle on Sept. 14.

Oakland rookie Derek Carr was 16-of-34 for 172 yards. His final completion, a 28-yarder to James Jones, converted a 4th-and-9 from the Oakland 13. After spiking the ball to stop the clock with 11 seconds remaining in the game, he threw a Hail Mary pass that was five yards short of the end zone.

The Raiders (0-10) registered only nine first downs in their 16th consecutive loss, and they couldn't have gotten off to a worse start.

Miscommuntion on the game's first play from scrimmage resulted in a botched snap and a fumble. Donald Butler made the recovery for San Diego at the Oakland 22, and Rivers quickly connected with Malcom Floyd for a touchdown.

Later in the first quarter, the Raiders had a drive stall just outside the red zone and Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 42-yard field goal.

After a series of punts by both teams, San Diego was able to march deep into Oakland territory and went up 10-3 on Novak's 23-yarder with 4:12 to play in the second quarter.

Novak missed a 48-yard try to end the first half, snapping his franchise record for consecutive made attempts at 32. He nailed a 52-yarder in the third quarter.

The Raiders made it a one-score game when Janikowski was good from 25 yards out with 4:06 left in the fourth quarter.

Game Notes

San Diego's Mike Scifres and Oakland's Marquette King both punted nine times ... Floyd played in his 100th career game ... Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught eight passes for 63 yards.
