On fourth-and-12 from the Las Vegas Raiders' 35-yard line, Allen broke free as quarterback Justin Herbert bought time to deliver a 35-yard touchdown strike to give the Bolts life against the division-rival Raiders, who lead 27-20 with 8:44 remaining. Allen went to the sideline and appeared animated talking toward the Raiders' defense as he gestured his hand to silence any talk.
Meanwhile, in the first quarter te Bolts forced two turnovers, the second time in as many games that the Raiders have suffered early turnover woes. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr faced third-and-5 from his own 21-yard line when he threw a pass intended for wide receiver Mack Hollins. However, Bolts cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. tipped the ball into the air and cornerback Bryce Callahan came down with it before sprinting 26 yards to the end zone.
It was the Chargers' first pick-six since Week 11 of 2020.
