Raiders keep playoff hopes alive with win over Chargers 24-17

By  | 

CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Derek Carr threw for 291 yards and a touchdown as the Oakland Raiders kept their playoff hopes alive with a 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Raiders had slim postseason chances coming into the day but losses by Pittsburgh and Tennessee have given them renewed hope. They need a win over Denver next week and some help for only their second postseason trip since 2003. Carr also ran for a score as Oakland took control of the game with touchdowns late in the second quarter and midway through the third.
