After giving the Raiders 10 points on two interceptions, Philip Rivers finally threw a touchdown pass. His 2-yard toss to Hunter Henry has cut Oakland’s lead to 10-7 with 8:24 remaining until halftime.
It came on the Chargers’ longest drive of the season.
The Chargers drove 77 yards on 16 plays and in 8:14.
It included a fourth-and-one conversion from midfield on a 1-yard run by fullback Derek Watt.
The Chargers have outgained the Raiders 135 to 26, but Erik Harris has 115 yards in interception return yardage, including a 56-yard pick-six.
Rivers’ 12 career interceptions at the Oakland Coliseum are the most by a visiting player at the stadium, according to Josh Dubow of the Associated Press.
Rivers is 7-of-12 for 57 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
