OAKLAND, Calif. -- Josh Jacobs scored on an 18-yard run with 1:02 to play Thursday night to give the Raiders a 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in their final prime time game at the Coliseum.

Daniel Carlson missed the point after touchdown.

The Raiders drove 75 yards in 10 plays for the touchdown, which came after the Chargers had gone up 24-20 with 4:02 remaining.

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Austin Ekeler to cap an 80-yard, 12-play drive and give the Los Angeles the lead.

The Raiders, who got off to a flying start when Erik Harris intercepted two passes to set up a field goal and score a touchdown on a 56-yard return, never got into a good offensive flow but improved to 5-4 on the season. The Chargers are 4-6

The Raiders scored on a 9-yard pass from Derek Carr to Alec Ingold and on a pair of field goals of 40 and 22 yards by Daniel Carlson.


Carr completed 21 of 31 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown.

The Chargers scored on 3-yard run by Melvin Gordon and a 2-yard pass from Rivers to Hunter Henry.

The Chargers last drive ended when Karl Joseph intercepted a Rivers pass at the 30-yard line on a fourth-down desperation heave. It was the Raiders' third interception of Rivers.
