    KEY STAT: 3 - Number of different ways LaDainian Tomlinson was involved in a touchdown.


    Tomlinson fumbled on his 22-yard line with about five minutes remaining and the Chargers ahead by 13. But after the Raiders recovered, the call was overturned by a replay.

    "He hates the Raiders. I don't know why, but he said last night that it is something personal. He said they don't respect anybody.''

    ---- SS Terrence Kiel, on coach Marty Schottenheimer's motivation to defeat the Raiders.

    The Chargers' victory over Oakland was even more impressive considering their numerous injuries. Regulars who were unavailable were RT Shane Olivea (knee), LG Toniu Fonoti (hand), CB Drayton Florence (ankle) and KR/PR Darren Sproles (ankle).

    During the game, C Nick Hardwick (ankle), CB Sammy Davis (ankle), and WR Eric Parker (ankle) went out.

    "I think Mauck would have had to be activated if anyone else went down,'' LT Roman Oben said, referring to his position coach, Carl Mauck.

    In the secondary, former starter Jerry Wilson filled in and led the unit with five tackles.

    "Even old man Jerry Wilson was out there,'' CB Quentin Jammer said.

    Added Wilson: "I felt like a rookie in my first preseason game running around out there, just trying to get back into it.''


    After being virtually ignored the first three games, WR Reche Caldwell continued to find himself in the mix.

    Filling in for Sproles, Caldwell returned three kicks for 99 yards, including his initial effort for 60 yards. It was his first return since his rookie year of 2002.

    Caldwell also caught one pass for 32 yards and went 3 yards on a reverse.


    Marty Schottenheimer is as popular here as displaying proper manners to opposing fans. And for good reason.

    With the victory Sunday, Schottenheimer owns a 24-7 advantage over the Raiders.

    "He said (Saturday night) he loves to play the Raiders,'' said QB Drew Brees, who confirmed ---- as is Schottenheimer's tradition ----- that the coach's team speech included him tearing up.


    For the second straight game, DE Igor Olshansky was productive. One outing removed from tying a career-high with seven tackles against the Pittsburgh Steelers, he had a career-high two sacks against the Raiders.

    "I've been working on my pass rush game, and this was the only time I could finish the play,'' said Olshansky, who just missed sacks against the Cowboys and Patriots.

    Olshansky went to San Francisco's St. Ignatius High and had his parents, wife and sister at the game.
