Big plays in all three phases have given the Raiders a 17-0 halftime lead against the Chargers.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has continued to build on the potential he has shown early this season, completing 13-of-18 passes for 141 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including a 44-yarder to Rod Streater on Oakland’s first snap on offense.

The Raiders’ defense did its part, too, stuffing Chargers running back Danny Woodhead on a 4th-and-1 play at the Oakland 1 in the second quarter. The Chargers, who were trailing 14-0, passed on the field goal go for seven, but the Raiders turned them away.

Later, the Raiders’ special teams would make a key contribution, recovering a fumble by the Chargers’ Eddie Royal on a punt. The Raiders would capitalize with a field goal, putting them up 17.

    I have to admit that I am shocked by his 65% completion percentage.

    I always thought he would be as accurate as Brady Quinn (53%).

    I’m kinda liking the idea of a late night game from the west coast. The college game does it. And even with a Sunday night “national” game, like the idea of an nfl network game late. Probably just me, though…
