<P>Raiders stifle Chargers in late</P>
<P></P>
<P>(AP) Terrelle Pryor and Charles Woodson turned this rare late night start into an Oakland Raiders celebration.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Pryor threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter and Woodson tied an NFL record with his 13th defensive touchdown as the Raiders beat the San Diego Chargers 27 17 on Sunday night.</P>
<P></P>
<P>BOX SCORE: Raiders 27, Chargers 17</P>

<P></P>
<P>Pryor got the Raiders (2 3) off to a fast start in the latest starting West Coast game in NFL history with a 44 yard touchdown pass on Oakland's first play from scrimmage.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Raiders then used four forced turnovers, a goal line stand, Woodson's 25 yard return of Danny Woodhead's fumble and Authentic Terrence Brooks Jersey two long field goals by Sebastian Janikowski to beat the Chargers (2 3).</P>
<P></P>
<P>Philip Rivers had his third 400 yard passing game of the season, throwing for 411 yards and two touchdowns. But he also had three interceptions as the Chargers played without injured starting offensive linemen King Dunlap and Chad Rinehart. They also lost running back Ryan Mathews to a concussion in the first half.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Raiders were also without starting offensive linemen Stefen Wisniewski and Tony Pashos as well as running back Darren McFadden. But Pryor and Woodson helped make sure that didn't matter.</P>

<P></P>
<P>The wait was more than worth it for Oakland fans who had plenty to cheer about right from the start as Pryor and the Raiders broke out to a 17 0 halftime lead.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Chargers' first score didn't come easily as Nick Novak had a 37 yard field goal attempt blocked by Tracy Porter. But Ladarius Green picked up the ball behind the line of scrimmage and ran for a first down. Rivers appeared to throw a touchdown pass to Keenan Allen two plays later but the call was reversed after replay showed Allen got only one foot down inbounds.</P>
<P></P>
<P>That led to a second field goal attempt for Novak and he connected this time from 35 yards to cut Oakland's lead to 17 3.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Raiders appeared to break the game open when Woodson scooped up Woodhead's fumble and ran it in to make it 24 3. That tied him with Darren Sharper and Rod Woodson for the most defensive touchdowns in NFL history.</P>

<P>But Rivers and the Chargers didn't quit, Crockett Gillmore Womens Jersey scoring touchdowns on their next two drives on passes to Woodhead and Allen in the opening 5 minutes of the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to 24 17.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Pryor came up with one more big play, scrambling before hitting Brice Butler on a 20 yard pass on third and 14. That set up Janikowski's 50 yard field goal that made it 27 17. Pryor finished 18 of 23 for 223 yards.</P>
