After accepting the kickoff, the Chargers were stopped on three downs and John Kidd's punt went off the side of his foot for only eight yards.
"I've never really been one to do that," Kidd said. "It's disappointing, I can tell you that. We can't afford stuff like that."
As a result of Kidd's shank, the Raiders took possession at the San Diego 35 and then turned Jackson loose. He carried four times in a row for 23 yards, and then after Steve Smith gained seven yards, Jackson went left for his first touchdown in four meetings with the Chargers.
Carney gave the Chargers three more points with a 37-yard field goal that bounced off the upright of the goal post, but on the Raiders' opening drive in the second half, they put the game away.
