San Diego was the first to find the end zone for more than just 3 points. Early in the second quarter, quarterback Philip Rivers completed a 6-yard pass to Malcom Floyd for a touchdown. The Raiders would make a rush for the end zone in the closing seconds of the half, only to settle for another field goal.
The Raiders can take this positive away from the first half: they're beating SD in the stat column! In the first half, quarterback Carson Palmer threw for 156 yards. Pulling double duty, Darren McFadden rushed for 35 yards and had 67 yards in reception. If those stats can translate into actual points, the Raiders just might win this game.
