Good news: The Raiders finally got a takeaway. No longer making team one of just two teams without one this season.
Bad news: Their three turnovers on offense now land them alone in last place for the NFL’s worst turnover differential.
After the first three weeks of the season, the Raiders were tied with the Minnesota Vikings with a -7 turnover differential.
Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Raiders would break the shutout in terms of takeaways by getting their first interception of the season. Tre’von Moehrig finally secured an interception.
Unfortunately, Aidan O’Connell fumbled three times and threw an interception. Two of those fumbles were recovered by the Chargers, giving them three turnovers on the day and a -2 turnover differential for the game.
This dropped them to a -9 turnover differential on the season.
Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the Vikings had two turnovers and one takeaway in a win over the Panthers, to give them a -1 turnover differential for the game and tied for 30th in the league with a -8 for the season.
The Chargers going +2 versus the Raiders moved them into a tie for 4th in the league with the Sehawks (+5).
The top three are the Cowboys (+9), Buccaneers (+7), and Bills (+6).
