    The Chargers play virtually mistake-free football to dominate the Raiders and win their fifth consecutive game.

    Quarterback


    A

    Playing it cool, Drew Brees is becoming a greater Raiders-killer than LT.

    Running back


    B

    LT doesn't have his usual Silver and Black stuff, but good enough against these stiffs.

    Receiver


    B

    Everyone has big catches. Antonio Gates is guarded like Buckingham Palace.

    Offensive line


    B-

    Brees is sacked twice – two too many. Run game is almost painful.

    Defensive line


    A-

    If Jamal Williams doesn't go Pro Bowling, the vote was taken in Florida.

    Linebacker


    A

    But, pray tell, why does Shawne Merriman come out on passing downs?

    Secondary


    A

    Terrence Kiel's out, so Clinton Hart plays Lou Gehrig to Kiel's Wally Pipp?

    Special teams


    B

    Nate Kaeding should just try onside kicks, for all the distance he gets.

    Coaching


    A

    The Raiders are puff pastry and Marty Schottenheimer is John Goodman.

    Next opportunity (vs Miami)

    A


    Ricky comes home, plays, loses, then flies off to Tibet.

    By the numbers


    0

    Touchdowns by LaDainian Tomlinson, only the second time in 10 career games against Oakland he has failed to score.


    1

    Penalty called in the game – against the Chargers. (Oakland entered the game leading the league in penalties.)


    5

    Consecutive wins for the Chargers, only the second time since 1995 they've had a winning streak longer than four games (eight in 2004).


    5

    Consecutive wins by the Chargers over the Raiders, the longest streak by San Diego in the series since it won the first six meetings (1960-62).


    19

    Consecutive home games in which the Chargers have scored at least 20 points.


    25-7

    Marty Schottenheimer's career record against the Raiders. No coach has won more games against the Silver and Black.


    76-24

    Combined score of San Diego's victories over Oakland the last two seasons at Qualcomm Stadium.
