Raiders roll with many eyes on L.A.
SAN DIEGO — For three quarters, the Raiders embarrassed their possible future stadium mates.
Not only did Oakland practically run San Diego out of its own stadium, but there were enough Raiders fans to make it feel almost like a home game.
Derek Carr threw for three touchdowns, including a nifty 52-yarder to Amari Cooper, and Oakland turned two interceptions of Philip Rivers into 10 points in beating the Chargers. It was the first meeting of the longtime AFC West rivals since their owners announced plans to build a $1.7 billion stadium in suburban Los Angeles if they can't get new stadiums in their home markets.
But veteran safety Charles Woodson, 39, said allowing 23 points in the fourth quarter "was almost like a blueprint for how not to finish games."
