Courtesy of ESPN's Stats & Information, we have several charts on San Diego's 34-7 win over Oakland on Thursday night.
The Raiders' defense kept San Diego tight end Antonio Gates and receiver Chris Chambers out of the mix, but the Chargers burnt Oakland elsewhere. San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers hit receiver Vincent Jackson and running back Darren Sproles for big plays. Here's a look:

Rivers was very efficient. Here is a look at how he distributed his passes:
|Philip Rivers' Passing Numbers |
|5 yards or fewer||4||9||47||2||0|
|15 yards or more||4||8||140||1||0|
After Oakland starter JaMarcus Russell went down with an ankle injury near the end of the half, his replacement, Andrew Walter, didn't fare much better.
Here is a look at Oakland's passing offense by distance thrown:
