Philip Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd on the game’s third play from scrimmage, and the San Diego Chargers held on for a lackluster 13-6 victory against winless Oakland on Sunday, extending the Raiders’ losing streak to 16.
After dropping their season-opener 18-17 to the now 8-1 Arizona Cardinals, the Bolts reeled off five straight victories, even holding the lead in the AFC West for a time.
