6:25 pm
team in the post season. there are still plenty of possibilities as far as seating is concerned. the oakland raiders know tonight after a 14-year absence they are a playoff team. raiders in san diego were what is left of charger fans. leading 10-3 just before half time. michael crabtree makes a fine effort to come down with the ball. the play was reviewed. it was ruled that he did. 10-10 at the half. raiders kicked a third quarter field goal, but the chargers went and brought phillip rivers. raiders would kick a couple of third quarter games. here is the game winner. just gets the 44 yarder through the upright. that didn't happen on 4th and 15 from the 9. rivers is picked off by reggie nelson. oakland runs out the clock on a 19-16 win.
6:26 pm

6:27 pm
cardinals with 13 points. two teams went to the locker room tied up at 29. but stanford was held to just nine points in the third quarter. driving in the 4th, dumps it off to mercedes russell for the easy win. 59-51. stanford was handed their second loss in ten games. the sharks still on the road trip playing tonight for chicago. we'll see a 10 and then an 11 osports wrap. >> seems like a lifetime ago, but 49ers play the rams next week. back on september 12 they beat the rams 28-0. that is it. that's correct. that was the opener that we've had maybe the rams were regarded as a pretty good defense back then and maybe the 49ers aren't as bad as we thought they might be, but they were. >> they have not won since then, an interesting coincidence. they last went 2-14 in 2004. both against the arizona cardinals in overtime. they actually have a chance to repeat that pattern, which is about as optimistic as they could be right now. if they were to win two games
6:28 pm
they'd be against two for the season. but assuming any kind of 49er win these days is a long shot. absolutely. they couldn't beat the jets. i don't know if you would beat the rams, we'll see. thanks, mark. >> thanks, joe. thanks for making ktvu your source for news tonight. we're always here online on ktvu.com, facebook, twitter. it will be cold out there tonight. bundle up. we'll see you tonight at 10:00. enjoy your nice evening.
