Raiders Stun Chargers To Complete The Sweep
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jason Campbell ran for one touchdown and threw for another, Darren McFadden ran for 97 yards and a TD, and the Oakland Raiders took advantage of more mistakes by San Diego to stun the Chargers 28-13 on Sunday.
The loss puts a serious crimp in the playoff hopes for the four-time defending AFC West champion Chargers (6-6), who trail the Kansas City Chiefs by two games with four to play.
Oakland (6-6) revived a running game that had been stopped cold in two straight losses, ripping through the Chargers for 251 yards.
Michael Bush ran for 95 yards.
The Raiders swept the season series for the first time since 2001.
The Chargers’ streak of 18 straight December victories — which tied an NFL record for most victories in any month — came to a thudding end.
