Raiders vs. Chargers rating, outcomes: Justin Herbert leads LA to victory in further time
Throughout the season, Chargers have found ways to get defeat from the jaws of victory. They almost made it back in week 15, but Justin Herbert found a way to lead LA to a 30:27 win over the Raiders on Thursday Night Football.
Herbert completed 22 of 32 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns and ran an additional 14 yards, including a 1-yard QB sneak-on-third-and-goal for the touchdown at the end of the game in OT. A few games earlier, Herbert set up the chargers at Las Vegas 2 with a 53 yard bomb against Jalen Guyton.
Much talked about the QB matchup, but Las Vegas starter Derek Carr left the game in the first quarter with a groin injury. Backup Marcus Mariota came on the occasion, completing 17 of 28 passes for 226 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also ran for a pitch of 88 yards and a touchdown to just nine carry (9.8 yards per carry).
The Chargers got off to a quick start when Herbert led a touchdown drive on their first possession, and Hunter met Henry for a 10 yard score and a 7-0 lead. Carr quoted a nice response from the Raiders to the ensuing possession before going paralyzed as he ran to the sideline in third and scorer. Las Vegas opted for a 23-yard field goal from Daniel Carlson and scored 7-3 towards the end of the first quarter.
After the Raiders defense forced a punt, Mariota had got off to a solid start by leading an 86-yard seven-game touchdown drive that ended with a 35-yard pass over the top to Darren Waller on the left sideline ended up giving Las Vegas a 10-7 lead with 9:19 in the second quarter.
LA responded with a strong end at halftime, scoring 10 points in the final two minutes on a 22-yard field goal from Michael Badgley and a 26-yard touchdown pass from Herbert to Ty Johnson to get a 17 -10 lead to achieve.
The key to Las Vegas in the second half was slowing down the pace. After forcing LA to stab to open halftime, the Raiders connected the game 17-17 with a 10-game 76-yard drive that lasted 5:23 and ended with a 1-yard TD from Josh Jacobs . After the Chargers responded with a 12 game, 75 yard touchdown ride to regain the lead, Mariota led a 19 game 75 yard ride that lasted 10:52 and with a 2 yard QB keeper TD ended up to reach 24 -24 with 6:16 remaining.
LA then had two chances to win the regular game. The first came on a 47-yard field goal attempt that Badgley hooked on the far left. Badgley then missed from 51 yards, again far to the left, after Herbert took an 8-yard sack in third place, which made the attempt more difficult.
Las Vegas kicker Daniel Carlson was hired to attempt a 65-yard field goal in second place four seconds from time, but the snap was fumbled and recovered with no time left.
The Raiders won the throw in OT and Mariota took them to LA 4, where they had a first-and-goal. But after runs 1 and minus 2 yards from Jacobs and an incomplete pass in third place, Las Vegas had to settle for another 23-yard field goal from Carlson to give them a 27-24 advantage at 3:18 achieve. That opened the door for Herbert and LA.
The Chargers (5-9) were already eliminated from the playoff competition and at least temporarily hurt their draft inventory with the win, but they will at least be happy to hurt their rivals' playoff chances. The Raiders (7-7) are now 1.5 games behind the Ravens and the Dolphins and with just two games they are last on the wildcard in the AFC.

11:15 p.m. – Raiders win the throw. You get the ball to start OT.
11:11 p.m. – RULE END: Raiders 24, Chargers 24. Las Vegas wanted to try a ridiculous 65-yarder but the snapshot was fiddled and restored by the owner with no time left so we'll be working overtime.

11:07 p.m. – timeout, chargers. Herbert took a bad sack in third place. It's the fourth and ten from the 33-yard line in Las Vegas, 58 seconds from the end.
10:59 p.m. – Interception. Mariotas Pass is behind Zay Jones and Chris Harris takes advantage of the election. Chargers take over on the 32-yard line from Las Vegas after the 52-yard return, another 1:54.

10:02 p.m. – TOUCHDOWN, RAIDERS. Josh Jacobs jumps over the pile for the 1 yard TD to tie it between 17-17, with 7:18 left in the third quarter.
Mariota looked solid in Carr's absence; He's done 6 of 8 passes for 105 yards and a TD, adding another dimension to the Las Vegas offensive with his legs. He showed that on that 26-yard run.
9:51 p.m. – chargers sting. Another LA trip to the Las Vegas area ends in a boat. Raiders take over at their 24-yard line at 12:41 in the third quarter after a 16-yard return from Hunter Renfrow. It looks like Renfrow was injured in the game.

Not a bad start for the former Heisman winner.
8:54 p.m. – Chargers sting. LA moves it to midfield but Jalen Guyton drops a potential first. This is Herbert's first incompleteness of the game and the Raiders get the ball back on their 14-yard line at 1:29 pm in the second quarter.
