OAKLAND, Calif. Leo Komarov Jersey
. -- Terrelle Pryor and Charles Woodson turned this rare late-night start into an Oakland Raiders celebration. Pryor threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter and Woodson tied an NFL record with his 13th defensive touchdown as the Raiders beat the San Diego Chargers 27-17 on Sunday night. Pryor got the Raiders (2-3) off to a fast start in the latest West Coast game in NFL history with a 44-yard touchdown pass to Rod Streater on Oaklands first play from scrimmage. "I thought he started the game out about as good as you can start out," coach Dennis Allen said. The Raiders then used five turnovers, a goal-line stand, Woodsons 25-yard return of Danny Woodheads fumble and two long field goals by Sebastian Janikowski to beat the Chargers (2-3). Philip Rivers had his third 400-yard passing game of the season, throwing for 411 yards and two touchdowns. But he also had three interceptions as the Chargers played without injured starting offensive linemen King Dunlap and Chad Rinehart. They also lost running back Ryan Mathews to a concussion in the first half. "We came out and we were outplayed in all three phases," coach Mike McCoy said. "Its tough to go on the road and turn the ball over the way we did and win a football game on the road against a good football team. Too many big plays." The Raiders were without starting offensive linemen Stefen Wisniewski and Tony Pashos, as well as running back Darren McFadden. But Pryor and Woodson helped make sure that didnt matter. The game was shifted to a late-night start to allow time to convert the Coliseum to its football configuration after the Oakland Athletics played a baseball playoff game here Saturday night. The process took about 18 hours and was completed around 3:30 p.m., more than five hours before kickoff at 8:35 p.m. The wait was more than worth it for Oakland fans who had plenty to cheer about right from the start as Pryor and the Raiders broke out to a 17-0 halftime lead. The Chargers first score didnt come easily as Nick Novak had a 37-yard field goal attempt blocked by Tracy Porter. But Ladarius Green picked up the ball behind the line of scrimmage and ran for a first down. Rivers appeared to throw a touchdown pass to Keenan Allen two plays later but the call was reversed after replay showed Allen got only one foot down inbounds. That led to a second field goal attempt for Novak and he connected this time from 35 yards to cut Oaklands lead to 17-3. The Raiders appeared to break the game open when Woodson scooped up Woodheads fumble and ran it in to make it 24-3. That tied him with Darren Sharper and Rod Woodson for the most defensive touchdowns in NFL history. "Hes made a habit out of doing that his whole career. A defensive score, an interception to seal the game," Allen said. "Thats what we expect out of him. Hes been a playmaker for us and **** continue to be a playmaker for us." But Rivers and the Chargers didnt quit, scoring touchdowns on their next two drives on passes to Woodhead and Allen in the opening 5 minutes of the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to 24-17. "He got hot and we had to keep punching back," Pryor said. Pryor came up with one more big play, scrambling before hitting Brice Butler on a 20-yard pass on third-and-14. That set up Janikowskis 50-yard field goal that made it 27-17. Pryor finished 18 of 23 for 223 yards and has committed no turnovers since throwing two interceptions in the opener. "A lot of times you look up and something bad is about to happen and here he goes getting out of the pocket and he creates," Allen said. "It gives our team a sense of confidence." Oakland rookie D.J. Hayden and Woodson added late interceptions to seal the win. One week after Raiders fans spent much of the game booing Matt Flynn when he started while Pryor recovered from a concussion, there were only cheers for the quarterback this time. The love fest for Pryor started immediately after Rivers threw an interception to Usama Young on the third play from scrimmage. The Raiders took a deep shot on the next play and Pryor connected on a perfectly placed 44-yard touchdown pass to Streater. Pryor followed that deep shot with a methodical, 88-yard drive on Oaklands second possession, completing all seven passes for 61 yards capped by a 2-yard TD pass to Denarius Moore that gave Oakland a 14-0 lead after the first quarter for the second straight week. Kevin Burnett then stuffed Woodhead on a fourth-and-goal carry from the 1 and Chimdi Chekwa recovered a fumbled punt to Eddie Royal to set up Janikowskis 47-yard field goal that made it 17-0 -- Oaklands biggest halftime lead at home since the AFC championship season in 2002. NOTES: Rivers had three career 400-yard passing games before doing it three times in the past four weeks. ... Raiders RB Rashad Jennings left in the first half with a hamstring injury.

.ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams.SAN FRANCISCO -- While chatter has swirled about Jim Harbaughs future with the 49ers in recent weeks, wide receiver Anquan Boldin has secured his status in San Francisco -- and even credited the coach for his decision to come back. The franchise gave him a few million other reasons, too. The 49ers signed Boldin to a two-year, $12 million contract with $9 million guaranteed Monday, keeping quarterback Colin Kaepernicks top option from last season and one of Harbaughs favourites from hitting free agency. "Hes a guy I had a real good relationship with," Boldin said about Harbaugh on a conference call with reporters. "Me and him were able to talk about anything. And I just like his demeanour, the way he approaches the game. Hes a guy that wants to win. Im the exact same way. So I think we mesh pretty good." Boldin, who was set to become a free agent next week, led San Francisco with 85 catches for 1,179 yards to go with seven touchdowns last season. He was traded from John Harbaughs Ravens to the 49ers in the off-season for a sixth-round pick after helping Baltimore win the Super Bowl. While the salary cap strapped Ravens failed to make the playoffs, the 49ers finished 12-4 during the regular season -- in part because Boldin filled the void created by an off-season torn right Achilles tendon that sidelined Michael Crabtree for the first 11 games. Boldins performances earned him the Bill Walsh Award, given to the team MVP by the coaches. Boldins deal locked up one of San Franciscos top off-season priorities and briefly quieted the questions about Harbaughs future with the 49ers after reports surfaced in recent weeks about the team fielding trade offers for the coach from the Cleveland Browns, a possible rift with general manager Trent Baalke and even problems with players. Boldin said he doesnt pay much attention to NFL news in the off-season because hes focused on his family and charitable foundation and "at this time of year, people grab at whatever." But he admitted hed been following the Harbaugh saga. "When I did hear about it, I kind of laughed," Boldin said. "I dont think anybody in our locker room has an issue with coach Haarbaugh.

. The way our locker room is built, we have an open-door policy. If anybody has a concern or wants to voice their opinion, theyre more than welcome to. "There have been times when we have voiced our concerns as players, and coach Harbaugh has listened to us and taken into consideration how we felt as players. So I dont think theres any rift between players and coaches, particularly coach Harbaugh." Boldins return to San Francisco was not all that surprising. Harbaugh said at last weeks NFL Scouting Combine that the franchise was determined to re-sign the wide receiver, and Boldin had repeatedly said he wanted to come back. The sides hashed out the deal before Boldin could become a free agent for the first time in his 11-year career. "We are pleased that Anquan has chosen to continue his career as a 49er," Baalke said in a statement. "He is a consummate professional whose love and respect for the game provide a tremendous example for all players. Anquan has been a very productive player throughout his career and we look forward to his future contributions to our team and community." Boldins transition to the 49ers seemed seamless. Boldin, now 33 years old, was at his best in his debut for San Francisco when he caught 13 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown in a 34-28 win over Green Bay. He then capped his season with his second-best game with nine catches for 149 yards and a score in a Week 17 win over Arizona that clinched the fifth seed for San Francisco. In three playoff games, Boldin had 16 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers lost in the NFC title game to the eventual Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Boldin, drafted by Arizona in the second round out of Florida State in 2003, played seven seasons for the Cardinals and three for the Ravens. The three-time Pro Bowler has 857 receptions for 11,344 yards and 65 touchdowns in his career, which he believes is far from finished. "Physically, I feel fine," he said. "I feel as if I can play five more years. So thats not a problem for me. I feel great. But well see how it goes." AP Sports Writer Janie McCauley contributed to this story.
