Get live scoring updates, news and analysis Sunday at 1:25 p.m. when the Raiders travel to San Diego to face the Chargers.

The Raiders (10-3) can clinch their first playoff berth in 13 years if they can defeat the Chargers (5-8) at Qualcomm Stadium. Oakland’s playoff drought is second behind only Buffalo’s 16-year streak.

The AFC West rivals met on Oct. 9 in Oakland, when the Raiders prevailed 34-31 on the strength of Derek Carr’s 317 yards passing and two touchdowns. San Diego’s passing game will again present challenges for the Raiders — Philip Rivers threw for 359 yards and four touchdowns in their first meeting.

The banged-up Chargers will be without standout running back Melvin Gordon, who is nursing hip and knee injuries.

The Raiders are tied for first place with Kansas City, but the Chiefs hold the tiebreaker by virtue of winning both games against Oakland. Oakland has a two-game lead in the wild-card race with three games to play in the regular season.

Oakland is coming off a disappointing 21-13 loss to the Chiefs in Kansas City last Thursday night in which Carr had a disappointing 17-for-41 throwing performance. He threw for just 117 yards in the loss.

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Aldon Smith saying he’s back??

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Hmmmm

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Hey RAIDER writers??
    Can you guys ask JDR or Carr or whoever, why Cooper ain’t getting the ball??
    Is he hurt, not in the game plan or what??
    Are we just going to waste his talent like we did Rivera’s or even Holmes?!

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Even the guys calling the game was like go to Cooper go to Cooper deep!!
    As these games get harder the RAIDERS need to use their best offensive weapons more and more!! Besides the run game that would be Cooper, Crabs and Rivera

    The key player #Raiders have needed to return all along has been Mario Edwards Jr, not Aldon Smith. And Edwards looks to come back next week

    Raiders worked with Derek Carr under center all week in practice and before the game Sunday, but decided to err on the side of caution
