    Quarterback

    A

    After a masterful first half, Brees managed to control the damage.

    Running back

    A+

    For his next trick, LT plays corner, safety, tight end and special guest on "Boston Legal."

    Receiver

    C

    Even Gates, who can get open by 200 miles in Rhode Island, had problems finding space. Lorenzo Neal is leading receiver?

    Offensive line

    A

    Fill-in Jordan did an admirable job on the right; Oben and Dielman were splendid on the left.

    Defensive line

    B+

    Had all four sacks (Olshansky two).

    Linebacker

    B+

    Raiders wanted to run. They gained 39 yards over land.

    Secondary

    A

    One ankle injury after the other and guys held their own. Knocking out Moss was inspired.

    Special teams

    B

    Survived without Sproles. Kaeding still perfect. Kickoff coverage improves.

    Coaching

    A

    Schottenheimer doesn't like the Raiders and rubs it off on his players.

    Next opportunity (at Philadelphia)

    B

    The last time the Eagles played a game they couldn't have beaten UNLV.

    BY THE NUMBERS

    2

    Third-down conversions in 11 attempts by the Chargers.

    3

    Third-down conversions in 13 attempts by the Raiders.

    10

    Field goals in 10 attempts this season by Nate Kaeding.

    10

    TDs in five straight seasons scored by LaDainian Tomlinson and Seattle's Shaun Alexander, the first players in NFL history to do so.

    11

    TDs this season by LaDainian Tomlinson, one more than the entire Oakland team.

    24-7

    Marty Schottenheimer's coaching record against the Raiders.

    190

    Yards rushing by the Chargers, the third time in the last four games they have had at least 183.

    1,129

    Yards rushing in nine career games by Tomlinson against the Raiders (125.4 average).

    Yup I agree with those grades from Canepa. Gates with 1 reception is unacceptable.
