The Raiders have been facing a tough season, and unfortunately, their fans are feeling the impact too.
During Sunday’s game at SoFi Stadium, where thousands of Raiders fans were in attendance, the team was down 24-7 at halftime, leading to heightened tensions among the fans, but not over the game – it was about seats.
In the stands, two women were engaged in a heated argument, and things escalated when the woman in the Raiders jersey threw the first punch. She continued to throw punches as the other woman didn’t appear to be much of a fighter. Soon, two other women joined in the brawl before the situation was eventually broken up.
On the field, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert fractured a finger on his non-throwing hand during the game, yet he still managed to account for three touchdowns. Khalil Mack set a franchise single-game record with six sacks, helping the Chargers hold on to beat the Las Vegas Raiders 24-17 on Sunday.
The Chargers had a strong first half, scoring on four of their first five drives to build a 24-7 lead. However, the Raiders put up a strong defense in the second half and nearly made a comeback.
Herbert completed 13 of 24 passes for 167 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while also contributing 30 rushing yards and two scores. Meanwhile, O’Connell, starting due to Jimmy Garoppolo’s concussion protocol, completed 24 of 38 passes for 238 yards and had one interception.
