Keenan Allen up, Philip Rivers down for the Chargers

SAN DIEGO -- A look at the San Diego Chargers players who were “up” and those who were “down” in Sunday’s 37-29 loss to the Oakland Raiders:


Ladarius Green: Starting in place of Antonio Gates, the fourth-year pro finished with four catches for 45 yards, including a 31-yard reception for his fourth touchdown of the season.

Keenan Allen: He finished with nine catches for 89 yards. According to Elias, Allen’s 62 receptions is an NFL record through San Diego’s first seven games of the season.

Corey Liuget: One of the few bright spots for San Diego defensively, the University of Illinois product finished with six combined tackles.


Philip Rivers: The 12-year veteran totaled just 105 passing yards in the first half, throwing two interceptions that resulted in 10 points for the Raiders.

Offensive line: Even with starting left tackle King Dunlap and starting left guard Orlando Franklin back in the lineup after missing three games due to injury, San Diego failed to get a decent push in the run game. The Chargers finished with 90 rushing yards, but most of those came in the second half with the game already decided. The Raiders finished with more penalty yards (132) than San Diego had rushing yards.
