NFL: San Diego 24, Oakland 21

Dec. 30, 2012 at 8:03 PM

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- San Diego's Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes Sunday and the Chargers closed out their season with a 24-21 decision over Oakland.

Rivers hooked up with Danario Alexander and Antonio Gates for scoring strikes as the Chargers (7-9) wrapped up the 2012 campaign with three wins in their final four games.

The Chargers missed the post-season for the third consecutive season, however, which is expected to lead to the firing of Coach Norv Turner.

Terrelle Pryor came in to replace an injured Carson Palmer and went 13-of-28 for 150 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Raiders (4-12).

Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey were on the receiving end of Pryor's scoring tosses.
