After being out gained 293 yards to just 63 yards in the first half, the San Diego Chargers got their offense going to open the second half of the game. It took just eight plays for the Chargers to march down the field on the Oakland Raiders defense, mostly on the arm of quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers struggled in the first half, but on the drive completed 5 of 7 passes on the drive, including five in a row and the touchdown pass to rookie receiver Vincent Brown cutting the Raiders lead 17-10.
Brown caught a 30-yard touchdown pass with two defenders draped all over him. Rivers just threw the ball up for Brown in the endzone and somehow he was able to hold on to the football with Raiders defenders scrambling to knock the football out.
