SAN DIEGO December 5, 2010 (AP)





The San Diego Chargers are mortal in December, after all.

They found out at the hands of the Oakland Raiders, of all teams.



Jason Campbell ran for one touchdown and threw for another, Darren McFadden ran for 97 yards and a TD, and the Raiders took advantage of more mistakes by the Chargers to stun San Diego 28-13 on Sunday.



The loss puts a serious crimp in the playoff hopes for the four-time defending AFC West champion Chargers (6-6), who trail the Kansas City Chiefs by two games with four to play. Oakland (6-6) revived a running game that had been stopped cold in two straight losses, ripping through the Chargers for 251 yards. Michael Bush ran for 95 yards and a score.



San Diego gained just 21 yards rushing. Mike Tolbert, who had consecutive 100-yard games, was stuffed for 16 yards on seven carries. Rookie Ryan Mathews didn’t play, apparently still bothered by a high ankle sprain.



The Raiders swept the season series for the first time since 2001.



The Chargers’ streak of 18 straight December victories — which tied an NFL record for most victories in any month — came to a thudding end. Their last December loss was on Dec. 31, 2005. San Diego had been tied with the 1970-74 Miami Dolphins, who won 18 straight in Novembers.



The Raiders beat the Chargers 35-27 at Oakland on Oct. 10 when consecutive blocked punts early in the game led to a touchdown and a safety. That victory snapped Oakland’s 13-game losing streak to the Chargers.



The Chargers corrected their problems during a four-game winning streak, but then reverted to the form that showed during an ugly 2-5 start. San Diego had two early turnovers in this game, leading to a 14-0 Oakland lead.



Darren Sproles fumbled a punt early in the first quarter and Hiram Eugene recovered at the San Diego 18. On fourth-and-1 from the 9, the Raiders fooled the Chargers with a fake handoff to fullback Marcel Reece while Campbell ran a naked bootleg to the left for an easy touchdown.
