Raiders Vs. Chargers Final Score: San Diego Avoids Late Oakland Rally, Wins 22-14

From beyond, Al Davis is watching his Oakland Raiders and he is not happy. They had the entire game to put pressure on San Diego, but they waited until there were 59 seconds left in the game to make their move. Yet, it would be too little, too late for the Raiders as they lose to the Chargers 22-14.

Despite a game-high 297 yards passing, Raiders' quarterback Carson Palmer was unable to get anything going. Raiders' kicker Sebastian Janikowski would provide a majority of Oakland's offense by scoring two field goals during the first half.

Asleep at the wheel during the third quarter and a majority of the fourth, the next Raider points would come as the seconds ticked down in the fourth. Palmer completed a pass to Rod Streeter for Oakland's only touchdown. Palmer and Streeter would pair up again for two-point conversion. The Chargers recovered the ball on the onside kick and it was over.

After losing the entire 2011 season to injury, Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding played in his first NFL game in over a year. Little did he know that his first game back in the regular season would require him to score most of San Diego's points. Kaeding had five field goals and one PAT. Much to the Raiders dismay, he nailed every one of them.
