Raiders easily handled by the Chargers in 20-6 loss
By Brad Weiss
1. Melvin Gordon, Los Angeles Chargers
The Raiders have struggled against running backs all season long, so it was no big surprise that Melvin Gordon made plays all game long against them on Sunday. Gordon was able to rush for 90 yards, lead the Chargers in receiving yards with 72, and found the end zone on that 66-yard reception.
2. Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers
Philip Rivers continues to show that he is an MVP candidate this season, and he really did whatever he wanted against Oakland on Sunday. Rivers did have an interception, but in the end, he was able to utilize his weapons, leading the Chargers to another easy victory against the Silver and Black.
3. Maurice Hurst, Oakland Raiders
The Raiders have some rookies who have really stepped up this season, and Maurice Hurst is certainly one of them. The fifth-round selection out of Michigan notched his third sack of the season against the Chargers, and is proving that he is going to be a cornerstone of this roster for years to come.
