Raiders Vs. Chargers Score Update: Defense Reigns In 3-3 Tie After First Quarter

The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers renewed the 2012 edition of their rivalry as the teams head into the second quarter tied 3-3.

The Raiders defense had been absolutely stifling, holding the Chargers to negative yardage until five minutes remained in the first half as the Chargers plowed down the field to the red zone. The Chargers couldn't convert though and had to settle for a field goal.

But as good as the Raiders defense has been, the Chargers defense hasn't been half bad either. The Raiders had to settle for a Janikowski 51-yard field goal for their only points of the half as well.

Running back Darren McFadden hasn't been able to get too much going, rushing for 27 yards off of seven carries. Quarterback Carson Palmer has thrown 8-for-10 for 64 yards. Without Denarius Moore or Jacoby Ford, Darrius Heyward-Bey has brought down two catches for 22 yards.
