OAKLAND, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders kept their playoff hopes alive with a 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers with Derek Carr throwing for 291 yards and a touchdown.

The Raiders had slim postseason chances coming into the day but losses by Pittsburgh and Tennessee have given them renewed hope. 

They need a win over Denver next week and some help for only their second postseason trip since 2003. 

Carr also ran for a score as Oakland took control of the game with touchdowns late in the second quarter and midway through the third.
