Raiders bury Chargers under avalanche of first-half points

LAS VEGAS -- What a difference four days makes.

A little more than 96 hours after losing 3-0 in the lowest-scoring indoor game in NFL history, the Las Vegas Raiders blasted the Los Angeles Chargers 63-21 in a game in which they led by as many as 56 points.

Quarterback Aidan O'Connell threw for four touchdown passes and receiver Jakobi Meyers caught and threw for a score for the Raiders (6-8), who led 42-0 at halftime. This result will not help embattled Chargers coach Brandon Staley, as Los Angeles (5-9) committed five turnovers, three of which the Raiders' offense turned into touchdowns and two of which the Raiders defense returned for scores.
