SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers have to move on quickly from their latest loss because the rival Oakland Raiders are coming in Thursday night.
It’ll be the quite the showdown, with the Chargers having lost three straight games and the Raiders losing two straight. The teams are tied with Kansas City at 4-4 atop the AFC West, with Denver right behind at 3-5.
The Chargers lost 45-38 to the undefeated Green Bay Packers, their final shot at tying the game cut short in the closing seconds by Philip Rivers’ third interception.
Rivers leads the NFL with 14 interceptions. He did match his career high with four TD passes against the Packers, three to Vincent Jackson.
The Raiders swept the Chargers last year.
