SAN DIEGO - There was no way the Chargers could get through Sunday without doing some serious scoreboard watching. Chase Daniel Bears Jersey . Buffalos 19-0 win against Miami was being shown on the scoreboard video screen while the Chargers were warming up for their game against Oakland. Updates of New Englands 41-7 victory against Baltimore were shown during the game. "I was going to know, somehow," said quarterback Philip Rivers, whose Chargers needed both Miami and Baltimore to lose to stay alive in the race for the AFCs second wild-card spot. The Chargers still had to do their part, which they did with a 26-13 victory against the hapless Raiders. San Diego overcame three turnovers while benefiting from two turnovers and 12 penalties for 73 yards by the Raiders. The Chargers (8-7), who have won three straight games for the first time this season, head into their finale still needing help. They have to beat Kansas City at home while needing Baltimore to lose at Cincinnati and Miami to lose at home to the New York Jets. "All three went our way today, including the one we had our control in," Rivers said. "Same boat next week. We need all three to go our way. The only one we can control is the one here against the Chiefs." Rivers threw a go-ahead, 4-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen with 5 minutes left in the third quarter and Ryan Mathews ran for 99 yards and one touchdown, setting a career high with 1,111 yards. Nick Novak kicked four field goals for San Diego. Mathews limped to the locker room in the fourth quarter but later returned to the game. He left the stadium wearing a protective boot on his left foot. "The Chargers are still beating and I know no one wants to play us right now, thats for sure," said safety Eric Weddle, who had an interception. Oakland could have pulled within one score, but Rod Streater couldnt hold on to Matt McGloins 39-yard pass as he came down in the end zone with 4:38 left. Oakland challenged but the ruling was upheld. Oakland turned it over on downs with 54 seconds left and lost its fifth straight game. "It shouldnt have been close, but they dont give you any extra points for winning by a bigger margin," Rivers said. "Just find a way to win." Oakland (4-11) helped San Diego, too, by committing a dozen penalties. Mike Jenkins was penalized 15 yards for taunting Mathews after he pushed the running back out of bounds. Allen scored six plays later. "We had too many penalties," Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. "A lot of our penalties, specifically defensively, came on third down, which allowed them to extend some drives." The game was tied at 10 after a sloppy first half that included three turnovers by the Chargers and seven penalties for 39 yards by the Raiders. The only score of the first half that wasnt set up by a turnover was a 27-yard field goal by Novak in the first quarter. Early in the second quarter, Rivers wasnt ready for a shotgun snap and the ball bounced off him for a fumble that was recovered by former San Diego State linebacker Miles Burris at the Raiders 42. The drive stayed alive when Mychal Rivera leaped to catch a 37-yard pass from McGloin, and Darren McFadden scored on a 5-yard run on the next play for a 7-3 Oakland lead. Rivers was picked off by Mike Jenkins to end San Diegos next drive, but Weddle then intercepted McGloin at the Raiders 20, deflecting the ball to himself. That set up Mathews 7-yard run and the Chargers regained the lead at 10-7. San Diego forced the Raiders to punt from their 40 but rookie Keenan Allens fumble was recovered by Shelton Johnson at the 16. The Raiders had to settle for Sebastian Janikowskis tying 20-yard field goal with 10 seconds left before halftime. "Really, the series of the game was us holding them to a field goal at the end of the half," Weddle said. "That gave us some momentum. We made it interesting for a while but the better team won today. Just a great team win to have everything on the line and to struggle for a little bit but to show some character and toughness to overcome those issues we had. Novak kicked three more field goals in the second half, from 48, 28 and 33 yards. Janikowski added a 42-yarder. "We were right there in the game," Oaklands Charles Woodson said, referring to the halftime tie. "There really wasnt a whole lot that needed to be fixed. It was a close ballgame, our game to go out there and win." NOTES: Chargers tight end John Phillips injured a knee in the first quarter and didnt return. Chargers safety Marcus Gilchrist was shaken up in the second quarter but returned. Bears Jerseys . Now Arizonas new manager is hoping Yasmany Tomas can have the same effect on the Diamondbacks.

SPA, Belgium -- Nico Rosberg will start the Belgian Grand Prix from pole position after holding off a strong challenge from his Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton in qualifying on Saturday. Hamilton was ahead of Rosberg on the first two time splits of his final lap but then drifted back, allowing Rosberg to clinch a fourth straight pole and sixth in the past seven races. The German driver leads Hamilton by 11 points in the overall standings. Rosberg clocked 2 minutes, 5.591 seconds in difficult conditions, with the Spa track drenched following a heavy downpour shortly before qualifying started. "It was just Lewis I had to focus on," Rosberg said after his 11th career pole. "It makes it easier when theres not a whole bunch, only one guy." Hamilton finished in 2:05.819 and Sebastian Vettel got a much-needed boost with the third quickest time -- although the fact that he was 2 seconds behind the Mercedes pair offers the Red Bull driver little hope of securing a first win this season. "It helped us that it was wet. The gap was a lot bigger and our car was really dominant," Rosberg said. "It was amazing to see that, how quick our car is." Two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso was fourth in his Ferrari ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, the only non-Mercedes driver to win a race so far this season. Hamilton has won five, Rosberg four and Ricciardo has clinched two in an impressive first season with Red Bull. Hamilton had not qualified on the front row since the Canadian GP in June. "We have a great car here and were leading the way here. So cool to see that," Hamilton said. "We definitely have good chances for tomorrow." However, the 2008 champion was again plagued by technical problems -- just like in the previous four races, where he started from 22nd, 20th, sixth and ninth on the grid and still got on the podium every time. "I was nervous going into qualiffying, not knowing if the car was going to get through it," the British driver said. Chase Daniel Jersey. . This time, he had a brake problem. "You need to have confidence on the brakes. There were times in Q3 when I was just going straight on because the left brake wasnt really working. When it glazes its hard to recover, especially in the rain," he said. "But in the evening theyre able to scrub it and get rid of the glazing. In the dry tomorrow it shouldnt be a problem." Vettel, the four-time defending champion, did not take part in Fridays second practice run because of a power unit failure. The German drivers victory at Spa last year was the first of nine successive wins. The way things are going this season -- he is languishing in sixth place overall -- just a podium finish would be a success. "We know were down in power. Mercedes have a strong car and they have a lot of downforce. We are similar in the corners but quite a long way off in the straights," Vettel said. "Hopefully tomorrow will be closer in terms of race pace." Vettel has won 39 GPs -- including a record-equaling 13 last season -- and clinched 45 poles. But he has only two podium spots this term: third in Canada and Malaysia. "Im trying very hard. Its not like Im consciously deciding not to be on pole," he said. "Weve been on the other side for quite a while but thats the name of the game. The season was not what I was hoping for but there are still several races to come." In Q1, Mexican driver Esteban Gutierrez had to retire due to a technical problem and Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado failed to make Q2 after spinning his Lotus. His teammate, Romain Grosjean, failed to make Q3. The Frenchman starts the race from 15th as his difficult season continues. In the final practice earlier, Valtteri Bottas of Finland was fastest in his Williams ahead of Ricciardo and Rosberg.
