--San Diego has won its last 11 games against the Oakland Raiders, but Oakland still leads the series, 55-41-2. The Raiders haven't topped the Bolts since 2003.
--The Chargers have played the league's sixth toughest schedule, with an opponent's winning percentage of 0.566. That's a stark contrast to the preseason projections, when San Diego had the second-easiest schedule based on last year's results.

--Philip Rivers hit 10-of-22 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns. His passer rating for the game was 120.1, the sixth time this season he's had a passer rating of more than 120.
--LaDainian Tomlinson scored his 137th rushing TD, courtesy a key block made by Jacob Hester. Tomlinson now leads Marshall Faulk (136) and trails Terrell Owens (139) for career scores. Tomlinson had 25 carries for 95 yards and one TD on Thursday.
--Vincent Jackson led the Bolts with five receptions for a career-high 148 yards and one touchdown. He must average just 50 yards per game over the last three contests to record the first 1,000-yard season of his career.
--The Chargers scored on their first four possessions, due in large part to the stellar play of the offensive line. The O-line paved the way for a season-high 158 rushing yards and allowed no sacks in 22 pass plays.
--The San Diego defense was impermeable as it allowed just 54 rushing yards, the second fewest of the season. Stephen Cooper led the defense with six tackles and a career-high two interceptions, both in the second quarter. The last San Diego linebacker to record two interceptions in the same game was Donnie Edwards, who did it against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Dec. 12, 2004.
--Shaun Phillips had a career-high 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and the hit that knocked QB JaMarcus Russell from the game with an ankle injury. Phillips has 6.5 sacks this season with four of them coming against the Raiders.
--The Raiders' special teams were responsible for Oakland's only score as Justin Miller ran a kickoff back 92 yards for a touchdown. It was the fourth kickoff return touchdown of Miller's career, but his first as a member of the Raiders.
