Two wins in five days – not too shabby.

Derek Carr handles business – The stats alone weren’t overly impressive for DC Thursday night in primetime – he completed 21 of his 31 attempts for 218 yards and a touchdown – but when the pressure was on, Carr was at his best. No. 4 played all 58 offensive snaps against the Chargers, and on the final drive of the evening, he was a true maestro, completing five of his seven attempts for 53 yards. Over his past six ballgames, Carr has been stellar, throwing 10 touchdowns, and just a single interception.
Josh Jacobs closes it out – Give the Chargers just a little bit of credit, for much of the game, they did a really nice job of limiting the dynamic rookie. At the half, Jacobs had just 19 rushing yards, but eventually the levies broke, and No. 28 left his imprint on the game. In total, Jacobs played 30 snaps against Los Angeles (52 percent) finishing his evening with 16 carries for 71 yards, as well as three receptions for 30 yards, oh, and the game-winning touchdown as well.
Alec Ingold gets home – The rookie fullback has been a key cog in the Raiders’ offense in 2019, and while Ingold’s stats won’t necessarily blow you away, make no mistake about it, the man deserves a handshake for everything he’s done in 2019. While Ingold played just 12 snaps (21 percent) at the OACC, he no doubt made the most of them, converting a fourth down on his lone carry of the game, as well as hauling in a nine-yard reception for touchdown – the first of his career.
Two words: Erik Harris – When people look back in the Raiders’ history books and come across this game, I have a feeling it’ll be referred to as “The Erik Harris game.” Simply put, No. 25 was an absolute machine, making the OACC the place of nightmares for Philip Rivers on Thursday night. Harris played all 77 defensive snaps, finishing the Week 10 win with two interceptions – one which he returned for a touchdown – three passes defensed, as well as both a defensive tackle and a special teams tackle. Harris is just the 11th player to intercept Rivers twice in a game.
Clelin Ferrell feasts – The rookie defensive end showed exactly why the Raiders selected him No. 4 overall in this year’s draft. Ferrell played 56 defensive snaps (73 percent) against the Bolts, and put together quite the stat line – eight tackles, two-and-a-half sacks, two tackles for loss, three quarterback hits, and a pass defensed. Not a bad day at the office at all.
Benson Mayowa sets a career high – Thursday’s game was a memorable one for all of the Raiders, but following Mayowa’s one-and-a-half sack performance, the rangy defensive end now has seven sacks on the year which marks a career high. Mayowa played 33 defensive snaps (43 percent) in primetime, totaling three tackles, one tackle for loss, a quarterback hit, a forced fumble, as well as the aforementioned sacks.
